    CCHL WELCOME

    Welcome NOVA Ice Dogs, both returning and new, to the 2018-19 season!  I'd like to introduce myself, Brian McCarthy,  as the CCHL Director for NOVA.  This will be my 7th year with the program as a coach and 3rd as Director.  I look forward to representing your family and players this season both with the NOVA Board of Directors and as Chairman of the Capital Corridor Hockey League (CCHL).  Please follow both organizations on Facebook and Twitter for additional information throughout the season.  We would love to see all of your pictures and videos so please tag the organizations whenever you post!

    Below you will find the schedules for all age groups during the initial evaluation period which runs from Sunday August 19th through Sunday September 9th.  ATTENTION 18U: due to there being 4 total teams the weekend of September 8th will be divided by LAST NAME.  If your skaters last name begins with an A-L please attend 9/8 or M-Z attend 9/9.  Please be sure to note all dates and times for all weekends listed for the specific age group of your player(s).  All sessions should be treated as if it were a regular season practice meaning: all players should be dressed and ready to enter the ice in full equipment 10 minutes prior to the session beginning.  Players should wear a jersey with their last name on it or have their last name taped on the front and back of their helmet and a number on the jersey worn (this will allow coaches to evaluate skaters appropriately and quickly).  

    The purpose for the beginning evaluation period is for coaches to divide players into the number of teams allotted for each age group and to do so equally across the entire age group.  While I understand that this is a time of year when there are many overlapping activities all teams will be decided on after the 9/9 session, therefore, please do everything possible to attend as many sessions prior to that date for conditioning, skill refreshment and to assist in making all teams competitive. There is no need to notify me if you are not able to make a certain date. 

    When players arrive for the 9/14 session they will practice for the first time with their teams and meet their coaches.  Please prepare for a meeting with your respective coaches the week after and look for an invitation to TeamSnap for the 2018 season.  Once you have been invited to and accepted your invitation please download the application.  Once you’ve done this, all further communication will happen within your teams TeamSnap site.  Any communication from now until the 14th will be via email.

    If you are a previous or new coach with NoVa please be sure to register yourself on the NoVa website below to be included in future communication regarding coaching.  Per USAH no coach will be permitted on the ice or bench and in any locker room if you are not up-to-date with your background check, SafeSport certification and age module certificate from USAH.  CEP certification does not need to be completed until 12/31, however, local dates are now posted and filling fast!

    I hope you have enjoyed the off-season and are taking advantage of the summer sun with your families.  I also hope you’re as excited as I am to see your second family, your Ice Dog’s family at the rink!  This season is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet as the CCHL has grown 20% since last season!  The league has welcomed the Prince William Patriots and the Piedmont Predators programs to the CCHL.  Each club will bring 2+ additional teams to each age group.  Welcoming the two programs to the league also brings two additional ice rink facilities each of which containing 2 sheets of ice to the league. This will allow for all playoff tournaments to be held under one roof with multiple games played at once!

    If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out via email: icedogshousedirector@gmail.com any time.
