Guilford, Conn., - We are excited to announce that we are offering the opportunity for international players to have access and play for the Elite Hockey Program for U15, U16, and U18 levels. 

What about school you ask?

We have strong inroads to two Catholic schools in the area Notre Dame High School in West Haven, CT, and Xavier High School in Middletown CT. Notre Dame offers the International Baccalaureates program that offers a 13% higher acceptance rate to Ivy League schools. The schools will also assist in helping you obtain the F1 and I-20 Visa that will allow you to come to the US and play for our program. 

Now, what about hockey?  

You will be able to play a high level 65 game schedule throughout the season. But, also receive dynamic training, position specific skills, top quality coaching and driven results.   Also, you will be able to compete in one of the best youth hockey leagues in the country in the AYHL & ECEL which sends it's players to Juniors, Division 1, Division 3, and even the NHL. 

Where will you live?  We have that covered.

While in Connecticut, players are taken care of on and off the ice.  The Elite Hockey Program has a history of providing players with housing opportunities with quality billet families located in the immediate area. The Elite Hockey Program thoroughly screens and provides wonderful housing families. Our families work hand in hand with the organization to provide great direction and support for all our players. Families are screened on their value systems, their ability to provide a safe and clean environment and, of course, great food for our always hungry young athletes.
