Charlotte Street Hockey: New Directions

Hello all!

There are a number of plans and happenings going on at the CSH and we wanted to give everyone a much overdue update.

Hit the Dek Podcast: if you haven’t given this a listen, please do. It was a fun experience for sure! Click here to listen!

RSHL Ironman tournament: our boys kicked butt up in Raleigh a few weeks ago with both C-division teams meeting in the finals! Thanks to the RSHL for hosting another great event. This bodes well for the CSH travel team as both teams had members sprinkled throughout.

There is a little bit of bad news. Regretfully we are not going to be able to offer a league at the rink. The details do not matter at this point. But this disappointment has reinforced the fact that we really need of a facility we can call our own. We are growing in numbers but are only able to offer pick-up games and the occasional tournament.

The ultimate goal of this group is to have an outdoor dek hockey rink built, run by some of us. We could then offer leagues, host national tournaments, hold youth camps, etc.

To kickoff the fundraising, we’ll be hosting a fun little tournament at Waymer Park (maybe have a cookout there as well) sometime in early May. Cost would be something like $20-25 but 100% will go towards the rink. We’ll probably have some t-shirt sales too (CSH koozies anyone?)

If anyone would like to be involved in this project or have constructive ideas, don’t hesitate to talk to either myself or Nick Rose.

More details about the tournament coming soon. Stay tuned!
