Invitation to create Team / Program Videos



Example Team/Program Video ...

On February 7th, the CGHL gathers at a Quinnipiac Women's Hockey game as we celebrate girls and women's hockey partially in honor of CGHL's 10th Anniversary!  As part of the celebration, Quinnipiac has graciously offered to make it's beautiful big screens available to run, in part, a loop of CGHL videos. 

We are inviting players and/or parents to submit a video that captures their team's or program's spirit.  It's a great opportunity to plug your programs and it will be a lot of fun for all to see players up on the BIG screen. 

Jacqui, Shoreline Sharks U14 Team, prepared this rough draft (above) as a sample.  It would have taken me about 3 days to figure out how to do it ... I suspect like most kids, it took her about 30 minutes ... including taking some footage at practice and before a game.

Our members share a common goal:  to provide girls great opportunities to start and grow with hockey!

From our first days, we have been proud that so many of the local Programs that make up the CGHL spectacularly demonstrate values articulated by the Positive Coaching Alliance and USA Hockey's American Development Model ("ADM") :  CGHL values effort, fun, development, teamwork and excellence!
