NoVA 8U Travel Program Specifics

The Ice Dogs have fielded three 8U travel teams for this season (2011 LA, 2012 LA, mixed B). The players on NoVA's 8U Travel teams are be a subset of players from the Club's 8U House Program playing in the Metropolitan Division. The Metropolitan Division is be comprised of older, more experienced players including the NoVA 8U Travel players.

Travel Practices:

The NoVA 8U Travel teams practice every Tuesday night from 7:30-8:45pm at Mount Vernon Ice Arena. We also practice on Saturday afternoons at Mount Vernon when schedules permit (no games, ice available, etc.).

CBHL Games:

The CBHL has adopted a Jamboree-style format for league play. Each representative club will host a three-hour Jamboree where each attending team will play multiple 1/2-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.
