Reminder for Registration Deadline of 7/22!

Hello All,

I hope everyone had a lovely 4th of July and got a chance to relax and recharge with family and friends! I know with this warm weather, hockey is not on most people's minds - but this is your friendly reminder to make sure that your player(s) are registered with CVYH by 7/22. We have a strict deadline this year for registration due to tryouts a week later AND we need to order game jerseys and socks. Players must be registered with CVYH to participate in tryouts! (Given supply chain challenges, we need to allow for enough time to get the order placed and inventory sent our way). Additionally, jersey # preference is given on a first come first served basis!

There will be further details coming out soon regarding logistics around tryouts and what to expect. In the meantime, please feel free to visit our website for dates!

 There is a lot of information housed in the registration itself, but a few items to highlight:

·      Registration deadline, for 8U travel, 10U, 12U and 14U is July 22nd! This is to accommodate the planning of tryouts beginning the following week and for jersey ordering!

·      This merger will offer top tier co-ed and regular co-ed teams at the 8U, 10U, 12U & 14U levels and girls only teams at 10U, 12U & 14U. Details inside the registration on what to expect from each level. 

·      Tryouts are happening soon! They are scheduled for in the last week in July and first two weeks in August. Schedule of times and location details are included in registration. Your player must be registered with CVYH to participate in tryouts! (Dates are 7/27, 8/3 and 8/10 dependent on what level your player(s) is at. Your player must attend at least one tryout. 

·      Tuition costs this year include a game jersey and socks, for you to keep, with your players name on the back! It is important that you fill out the jersey sizing and sock sizing at registration. Additionally, we are asking players to give their top 5 number choices.CVYH will do our best to accommodate number selections – but do understand, this is being done on a first come first serve based. You can find sizing of jerseys and socks at

Registration is now open!


It’s with great enthusiasm and excitement that the Barre Youth Sports Hockey (Blades and Black Hawks), Central Vermont Skating Association (Capitals), Harwood Youth Hockey Association (Highlanders), and Northfield Amateur Hockey Association (North Stars and Blizzard) announce their merger to form the Central Vermont Youth Hockey beginning with the 2022-23 season!

We believe the unification of our four clubs’ resources will allow us to grow the game of hockey in Central Vermont. Together, we can improve the development experience and increase the opportunities available to players while keeping youth hockey affordable, and inclusive in our communities.

As we work through this adjustment, you will undoubtedly have a lot of questions and we will work diligently to provide answers as we have them. We thank you in advance for your assured support and patience while we’re creating and organizing all of the opportunities that the CVYH will offer our youth athletes. To see a complete list of all the merger benefits and updated FAQs, visit
