Development Team

The CCYHA Development Team program offers high caliber players in CCYHA house programs and the Blue Jackets Hockey League additional opportunities to develop their skills as individual skaters and team players. Emphasis is on the continued growth of the players in their skills and hockey knowledge under the guidance of Battery Hockey Academy and CCYHA coaches.

2. Players accepting roster spots

3. Ice availability

4. Availability of qualified coaching


Practices will be held at Battery Hockey Academy. Teams will utilize the ice, synthetic ice, and off-ice areas of the facility to further develop their skills. We anticipate 9 practice sessions throughout the season on weekends.


Games - Due to ice limitations at the Chiller, there will be no scheduled local games for these teams.

Tournaments - Anticipated 4 tournaments will be scheduled for each team. Out of town travel will be required.

Estimated Tournament Weekends

  • November
  • December
  • MLK Weekend (January 13 - 16)
  • Presidents Weekend (February 16 - 19)
  • Middle of March


Costs for the Development Team are in addition to regular house fees. Players selected will incur an additional fee (approximately $700-850 depending on battery fees + tournament fees).

Upon making the team, each player will be asked to pay a $300 commitment deposit. Final payment will be due no later than December 1.

Fees include practice sessions, tournament registration fees and a jersey / socks (if required).

Fees do NOT include equipment or travel-related expenses such as gas, food, lodging, etc. which are paid separately by each player. Please note that most tournaments expect a two-night hotel stay minimum for players.

Jerseys / Socks

Fees include a jersey + socks for every player with the exception of the 14U team as every bantam player receives a reversible jersey as a member of their house team.
