There are no tryouts. TCS Development Program is open to Boys and girls aged 4-12 who have completed a learn to skate program. All players are required to wear full protective hockey equipment, including mouth guard. We do not encourage full-time goalies at this level. All players are encouraged to wear positional protective equipment to facilitate the development of fundamental hockey skills. Opportunities to learn goalie-specific skills will be provided during each session using USA Hockey QuickChange goalie equipment.
Note: The Development Program replaced the House League program in 2017-18
