GSC Travel Development League

This season GSC will be introducing the Travel Development League (TDL), an enhanced Outdoor Hockey League.  GSC will have TDL teams at Squirt and Peewee levels play in the newly formed WestConn local travel league. TDL teams will play home games at GSC and travel games locally at Darien, Stamford, Rye and Shelton.  Purpose is to focus on skill development and fun competition with other area hockey clubs.  The season will begin in November when GSC opens and complete in February with a season ending Jamboree.

Practices:

Travel Development League teams will practice 2 times per week, one weekday and one Saturday consistent slot.  Practices will be skill focused, station based, USA Hockey Development modeled.  Teams will have dedicated coaches and guest coaches from GSC travel teams.

Games:

Each Travel Development League team will play one game each weekend, with the opportunity to add additional games as the season progresses.  Each team will have a minimum of 12 games.  Teams will alternate home and away games each weekend.  Home games will be Sunday evenings at GSC.  Teams will be provided GSC jerseys and socks.  Game play is monitored by WestConn board members to ensure good matchups and fair play.

Our goal is to provide a way for players to develop skills and experience local competition without the restrictions of a full Connecticut Hockey Conference schedule.  This will allow GSC to focus on the needs of the players not the league.  Travel Development League will prepare players to make the transition to full travel and continue the joy of playing hockey with friends at GSC.  Travel Development League is also a great alternative for players who cannot commit to a full travel season due to other activities.

 

WestConn League statement of purpose:

The WestConn League provides an enhanced, local hockey experience for all its participants. Its purpose is to provide an atmosphere where players can learn about hockey and develop skills in an environment centered on sportsmanship, fair play and fun.

We believe in the benefits of bonding with teammates and competitors, of developing relationships and camaraderie with families in our communities. Players will have a place to grow, gain confidence, learn skills and nurture relationships, free from the shenanigans associated with out of control programs. We believe “it takes a village to raise a child” These are our values. We hope that all the players and families create lasting friendships and memories.
