NoVA 8U Travel Program Specifics

The Ice Dogs plan to field three 8U travel teams this season. The players on NoVA's 8U Travel teams are a subset of players from the Club's 8U House Program playing in the Metropolitan Division. The Metropolitan Division is comprised of older, more experienced players including the NoVA 8U Travel players.

Travel Practices:

The NoVA 8U Travel teams practice once a week (day and time TBD) at Mount Vernon Ice Arena. 

CBHL Games:

The CBHL has adopted a Jamboree-style format for league play. Each representative club will host a Jamboree where each attending team will play multiple half-ice games. These Jamborees will be scheduled on either a Saturday or Sunday beginning no earlier than November 1 and ending no later than January 31.

Player Expectations:

Unless a NoVA 8U Travel team event is in direct conflict with either an 8U NoVA House practice or an 8U NoVA House game, all NoVA 8U Travel players are expected to attend their respective NoVA 8U House events. It is the intent of the Club and the 8U NoVA Travel Coach to minimize conflicts with the NoVA 8U House Program.
