YOUTH HOCKEY LEAGUE

lafayette-locomotiveIntroducing Hockey Club Lafayette

Lafayette Locomotive

After a successful 2017-18 season with two league championships and two state championships, the YMCA of Boulder Valley is excited to announce the development of Hockey Club Lafayette. Playing under the name of Lafayette Locomotive, HC Lafayette will provide the family atmosphere expected from the YMCA as well as an experienced hockey leadership that will continue and grow the culture and programming at the Carlston Ice Arena.

The Lafayette Locomotive name is a nod to the town’s rich railroad history that lead to the mining expansion and settlement of Colorado in the late 1800s. Lafayette’s railroads served an important role in the support of rock mines in the Rocky Mountains and built the foundation for the close-knit community that we all know and love today.

HCL – Lafayette Locomotive Skill Development Program (10U-18U)

The Lafayette Locomotive Skill Development Program is designed to provide a fourth ice touch for players looking for more skill development training during the season. HC Lafayette Division Directors will run each skate focusing on improving players skill sets, providing them the tools to translate their skills to game situations.

With an Advanced (Red), Intermediate (White) and Beginner (Blue) division at each level in the CRHL. We will have a team for every caliber of player at HC Lafayette.

Squirt, Peewee, Bantam, and Midget CRHL teams will have two practices during the week with the option for an additional practice with the Lafayette Locomotive Skill Development Program and an average of one game on the weekend according to league mandates.

All players at Squirt and PeeWee will be required to attend evaluations unless they request to be placed on the bottom division team. All Midget and Bantam players are required to attend evaluations.
