Connecticut Girls Hockey League CGHL Connecticut's first and only youth hockey league devoted entirely to girls

Connecticut Girls Hockey League - Welcome!


Formed in 2005, the CGHL is Connecticut’s 1st (and only) youth hockey league devoted exclusively to girls!  Our league’s teams reside at CGHL member programs throughout Connecticut and near our neighboring states’ borders.


The CGHL’s dedicated volunteers bring girls of all ages great opportunities to try and to grow with hockey on all girls’ teams.  Whether a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran, chances are there's a local CGHL member Program close by that has a spot for you!  CGHL values development, fun, effort, teamwork and excellence.  We love hockey for the greater confidence, resilience, determination and strength it helps develop! 


Since our beginning, we have been proud that so many of the local Programs that make up the CGHL spectacularly demonstrate values articulated by the Positive Coaching Alliance and USA Hockey’s American Development Model (“ADM”).




The CGHL is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a

Non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization.

Hi all,
I wanted to share a great opportunity to attend a very special Summer hockey camp.  Professional Player and Repeat Olympian / Team USA Captain, Julie Chu, will offer a Camp again this Summer at at Wonderland of Ice, Bridgeport, CT.   
For those who may be unfamiliar with Julie, she’s a Connecticut native who grew up in Fairfield/Bridgeport, played for Choate and Harvard University, won the Patty Kazmaier Award (best female collegiate hockey player) and helped Team USA win World Championships and successive medals at the Olympics  (in '02, '06, '10 and ’14).  She also plays professionally and has been a repeat all-star!  
It's so important for all athletes to connect with inspiring role models / heroes and Julie Chu is a great one!  Julie is widely respected for not only being a phenomenal player, but also an inspiring leader!    
In addition to her on-ice sessions, Julie offers motivational chalk talks which get incredibly high reviews!  My daughters were able to attend her summer camp and they absolutely loved it!

It's not too late - Berger Pond Hockey Tournament!

Berger Pond Hockey Tournament 26-JAN-2019



Hi all,
I wanted to share a great opportunity to attend a very special Pond Hockey event.  The Berger Pond Hockey Tournament!   We're still a couple of weeks out and if you have a team that could be available, I'd urge you to sign up if you can!!
For those who may be unfamiliar with the Berger Pond Hockey Tournament, everyone who attends says their team has an absolute blast!  And why wouldn't they?  It doesn't get much better for childhood memories than playing hockey outdoors with your friends and teammates!  At our CGHL Head Coach Meeting, Shoreline Sharks Coach, Tom Epke, shared it was, hands down, one of the best experiences for his daughter and their entire team!! 
This year, it's no wonder Shoreline Sharks return (go figure!) along with CT Ice Cats, Brewster, and Ridgefield!  If you have room in your schedule, you won't want to miss this.  But you'll need to act fast! 
Here are the details:  
When:  Saturday, January 26, 2019 ... All Day ... 9a - 4p
Where:  Camp Berger – Winchester Center, CT
Wahnee Rd, Winchester Center, CT 06094
Who:  Hockey Players of all ages and abilities:  U8-U14, U16, U19, Adults, skilled players and beginners!!
How Many:  Not sure, but from the pics, it looks like it's a big enough pond to accommodate everyone who wants to join in!
Cost: $50 per player - Not sure if there's time to still get a T-Shirt, but if there is, includes T-Shirt
How to sign up:  To reserve your spot, visit Berger Hockey's on-line registration system.  Visit
Questions?  If you have any questions, please contact organizer, Christopher Sheffield directly at  
Good luck and Go Girls Hockey!
