HHHA Jaguars offers a Competitive Travel hockey program for each age division. These age divisions are Squirts (U-10) through Midget Minor(U-16). Anyone interested in participating on a competitive team should be fundamentally sound and know how to skate, pass, and shoot. Travel hockey is designed for players who have the ability and desire to play at a challenging level of competition.
There is a tryout process for all Travel teams beginning in August for Midget Major, Midget Minor and Bantam. Peewee tryouts will take place following Labor Day. Squirt tryouts are in late September following the league mandatory “Skills & Drills” period. Players are selected on skill and hockey knowledge, with the best players being selected to the top team in each particular age group. Once placed on a team, players are expected to participate in all team functions.
All of our travel teams typically practice 2 to 3 times a week with 1 to 2 games on weekends. All of HHHA competitive Travel teams play in the Colorado Competitive Youth Hockey League (CCYHL). The CCYHL consists of organizations along the Front Range from Fort Collins to Colorado Springs. Every team can expect to play roughly 18 games depending on the number of teams fielded at each division.
Along with playing regular season games in the CCYHL players can expect to participate in 2 to 4 tournaments, with 1 or 2 of those tournaments requiring travel out of the state. By agreeing to participate on a Competitive Travel team players agree to attend all tournaments that the team chooses to participate in.
Participation on a Competitive Travel team takes a great deal of commitment and dedication. Those families that plan on participating on a Competitive Travel team with the HHHA can expect to be at a hockey rink 4 to 5 times a week throughout the course of the hockey season.
Note for Travel Team: All players on competitive teams (AA, A, B) will travel and attend all in state and out-of-state games and tournaments. Players and parents understand and acknowledge their commitment to travel and their obligation to the team for which they are trying out for, and accepting selection to. Players that do not participate or attend in-state or out-of-state tournaments may have their membership in the association terminated as described under item #18 of HHHA Registration Agreement. The coaches in conjunction with the HHHA Hockey Director will select the tournaments a team will attend at the beginning of the season. Team members will contribute equally to ALL tournament fees and expenses as outlined in the Team Accounting Procedures – Coaches Paid Expenses.
