Team Fees

Team Colorado has taken multiple productive steps forward in the past month.  The staff is committed to becoming a national model for successful high-performance AAA hockey programming, and Team Colorado strives to become a prominent program leader in player development and advancement.  This season all three Team Colorado teams will boast a permanent home practice facility at Big Bear, with full-season/full-time use of professional team rooms with individual stalls. The weekend home practice and game ice arena and weight room is at the Sport Stable.  

So far this off-season, Team Colorado has added a 14U Tier-1 "national bound" team, and hired a professional director, a new 16U head coach, a mental performance coach, a strength and conditioning coach, a goaltending coach, and retained all other coaches from the previous season .  The staff is committed to operating a first-class program and looks forward to making their mark on girl’s elite youth hockey in the United States.

Team Colorado leadership is currently working on grants, sponsorships and donations to keep fees below the national average while providing a properly run elite youth development program. To ensure all avenues of revenue generation this off-season are exhausted, 2020-21 season fees will be published in early June. Travel and uniform costs are separate from the season fee expenses.
