SIHA is gearing up to start its' next season of elite competition in the Youth World Division. All players who wish to play in the Youth World Division will be evaluated, and if chosen, placed on team rosters in March. The evaluation dates are scheduled to coincide with SIHA Club tournaments, which are already being played in the same age group. Here are the dates for the Youth World Evaluations:
17 & Under (February 18-19)
14 & Under (March 3-4)
12 & Under (March 10-11)
10 & Under (March 3-4)
Once the team rosters have been filled, Youth World Division play will begin. The division consists of a series of 6 tournaments. The Youth World Division tournament dates are as follows:
March 23-25 Rocky Mountain Wars at CET Sports Inline Hockey Arena
April 6-7 Either CET Sports or Qdoba Events Center (Ft. Collins)
April 27-29 At Qdoba Events Center (Ft. Collins)
May 25-27 CET Sports Inline Hockey Arena
June 8-10 SIHA-NARCh Regional Qualifier at CET Sports
June 14 - July 1 RC Invitational at CET Sports
From these tournaments, players from various Youth World Teams in each age group will be selected to play on the Junior Mudcats. The Junior Mudcats teams will then have the opportunity to travel to San Jose, CA and compete in the NARCh Finals.
SIHA's mission with the Youth World Division is to provide a setting for all players to continue improving their level of play. All players chosen for Youth World teams will be placed on teams to create the most competitive environment possible. All coaches for these teams will be selected based on their experience level and past success, and teams will be expected to practice weekly. The Junior Mudcats will be coached by CJ Yoder and Jon Ingrum.
