Girls Alumni

 CYA has had great success with moving girls on to College Hockey.  It is important to note that our success is not based on a special list of schools but, rather our success is based on moving girls on to the schools of their choice. Whether it’s NCAA D1, D3 or ACHA D1, it’s not about us; it’s about the player and helping them reach their Athletic and Scholastic Goals. 

The process begins the moment you join CYA. We sit down with all players on our U16 & U19 Teams to begin compiling information about the student/athlete is and what their goals are. We will work with you over the years to help you reach that goal. But remember, the word STUDENT is the key in becoming a successful Student/Athlete.
