CCM Pre-Season Tournament & EJEPL

New for the 2019-2020 season is the following:

 

EJEPL Showcase tournaments

Each travel team will have the option to join the EJEPL and take part in a 16 game showcase schedule in addition to their CBHL schedule. 

This will be done in a 3 showcase (4 games each event) and 4 exhibition game schedule.  The showcases will take place in Philadelphia twice, and one at the Chilled Ponds.  The 4 exhibition games will be worked through the other league members and your team. 

This option will eliminate the need to search for exhibition games and tournaments outside of your CPHL league schedule.   

The organization will cover the entry fee into the EJEPL while each team will be responsible for the cost to enter each showcase tournament as they would with any other tournament event.

 

CCM Pre-Season Placement Tournament

This year the Whalers will attend a pre-season tournament event at Potomac.  This event is covered in your due’s.

The event will take place May 3-5 for U10 and U12, and May 10-12 for U14, U16, and U18.

This event will not allow the coaches to evaluate the individual player skillsets for off-season happy hour training, it will also assistant in the team declaration process for declaring which division each team will play in for the 2019-2020 CBHL and EJEPL season.

 

Uniform Vendor

We will be also changing uniform vendors.  The uniforms themselves will NOT change, you can still use what you currently have.

WN Family Picnic

The WN Family Picnic and Concussion testing will take place on Sunday June 9th from Noon-4pm at the Chilled Ponds.

Burgers and Hotdogs will be provided.  We ask everyone bring a dish to share and their own drinks.

To pre-book you concussion test, please contact Michael Matz or Jordan Stillwell at Bon Secours at 757-391-7676.

This years event will include a equipment swap.  If you have any old Whalers uniforms or protective equipment you'd like to swap or sell, bring it to the event.  

We will also have training available for clock, scorekeeping, and music.
