We would first like to thank all of the players that participated in the 2018 RSHL Summer Shootout this past Saturday, especially the Waymer Wolverines who made it all the way to the C division finals (overtime no less)! Every player was friendly, humble and respectful during the tournament and represented Charlotte Street Hockey very well (unlike a few of the other teams in attendance).
While on the subject of tournaments, we will be retooling our travel team (Jesters) to be more competetive in future tourneys. This may include “try out” sessions in the next few months. Our intention is to field a full roster for C division and B division (12 runners, 2-3 goalies each). This way, if there are tournaments that require either a full roster or a partial one (like Greensboro) we’ll be covered. More to follow.
Here’s a look at the rest of the year:
- QC Jesters travel team tryouts (B and C division): Fall 2018 tentative.
- CSH League Fall 2018. We currently do not have a facility where we can host a league and run it internally. Location TBD.
- Non-profit application process: Fall/winter 2018, winter 2019.
- 2018 Almost Winter Classic tournament: Saturday, December 1st 2018. Not sure where this will be held as we may not be able to host at the DeFeo rink as we have in the past. We are also looking to reformat the tournament itself to be more competitive (read “even”) Location TBD.
Lastly, there are some wheels in motion in the background regarding finding some space in the Charlotte Parks system that can support a dek hockey rink. This is in the very early stages of planning so nothing major to report likely until 2019.
If you have any suggestions, questions, concerns, recipes, don’t hesitate to drop us an email. Also, if you would like to be more involved with Charlotte Street Hockey, let us know!
