Girls Tier I 14U

The CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance Tier I Leagues provide the top players from each district or section a chance to play with and against the best players in the state.  For the 2022-23 season, the Girls 14 & Under classification is for players born in 2009 and 2010.  The Leagues are conducted in accordance with USA Hockey rules and all teams are eligible for USA Hockey’s Tier I National Championships.

The Girls 14U League is expected to have eight teams: Loons (District 2), Walleye (District 3), Polars (District 5), Lakers (District 6), Moose (Districts 4/8/9), Green Giants (District 10), Voyageurs (Districts 11 & 12) and Blue Ox (Districts 15 & 16). 

The tryout process will begin in June with competition weekends starting in August and running through late September. As part of the CCM Minnesota Hockey High Performance programs, there will be 18 on-ice skill development practices, eight off-ice training sessions, and at least 17 games including league games, a National Invitational Tournament and playoffs. 

In partnership with TRIA, the Tier I Training Camp will once again kick off the season in late July or early August.
