GIRLS NEW ENGLAND FESTIVAL AND TEAM CONNECTICUT
 
WHAT IS THE FESTIVAL
The objective of USA Hockey’s Player Development Program is to select and train the most competitive men’s and women’s ice hockey teams to represent the United States at the Olympic, National, National Junior and Select levels of international competition. The attainment of that goal begins each summer as USA Hockey hosts a series of Select Festivals and Player Development National Camps exclusively for girls ages 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18. Nearly 700 athletes representing each of USA Hockey’s 11 Districts participate in the week-long Festivals and camps. These events attract scouts and evaluators from every level of hockey. Festival participants receive on-ice and off-ice training under the direction of leading USA Hockey coaches, along with current and former Women’s National Team players. Participants are chosen for these national camps through an evaluation process conducted at the local and District levels.


WHAT IS TEAM CONNECTICUT
The term "Team Connecticut" encompasses all the players at all age levels selected from CT to participate in the Festival. All the teams at the NE Festival are an age appropriate mix of players from all the New England District states. There is not one team consisting of just CT players.
