Team Colorado Hockey Club Program Information by Team


FIVE YEAR EXTENSION AGREED BY FOUNDING TIER MEMBERS

(March, 2020) Team Colorado is a unique program operated by the Colorado Amateur Hockey Association with support from six leading youth programs who are committed to advancing elite Girls hockey in the state.  Founded in 2016, the TC concept has formed into a highly structured high performance program, and is the only Tier-1 (AAA) program sanctioned by CAHA for Girls Hockey in Colorado.  The original six founding programs (Colorado Thunderbirds, Littleton Hawks, Boulder Bison, Colorado Springs Tigers, Aspen Leafs, and the Colorado Select) serve as the members of the Team Colorado Tier Advisory Board to CAHA.  They provide guidance for TC Hockey Club operations, and manage the Girls Tier-2 league.   In March (2020), all six members contractually agreed to extend the Team Colorado program and current Tier structure for another five years.  This ensures that Team Colorado will proudly serve as the only national bound Tier-1 (AAA) organization in Colorado through at least 2025.  In 2020-21, Team Colorado will field Tier-1 teams at the 14U, 16U, and 19U age divisions.  All three teams will represent Colorado at the Rocky Mountain District Championship Tournament in March 2021; the winners of this event advance to the USA Hockey National Championships in West Chester, Pennsylvania March 25-29, 2021.
