MO TRAVEL HOCKEY LEAGUE
This information applies to both our Lady Falcons program (Girls) as well as Falcons program (Boys).
Learn more about our All Girls Lady Falcons program - open to any girl in the St. Louis area.
Our Mo Hockey Travel teams play in a competitive league that is tiered appropriately for all skill levels. Compared to a Recreational or House League, the Travel program is offered for players looking for a greater level of competition.
With travel hockey there is an expected level of commitment. Teams can expect to potentially practice 2-3 times a week, and travel out of town an average of 1-3 times, depending on individual team and coach preferences and desires. Players are expected to attend all team events and place their CHA team at the top of their sports priority list.
Evaluations are held in August and the season runs through potentially early March. These teams compete primarily against hockey associations from the St. Louis area; however some of these clubs will reside outside of the immediate St. Louis area. Additionally, Travel teams may participate in out-of-town competitive tournaments based upon the interest level of the team members. Ample practice times and solid coaching have made the Chesterfield Hockey Association Travel program very competitive.
All coaches, regardless of their team designation, are required to provide the same development model, ensuring that every player, regardless of their current abilities, will have the same opportunities to develop. Teams are provided the same number of on ice hours with CHA guided development programs. We aim to sustain a successful formula that provides excellent development opportunities for all players, fun and excitement for players and families alike, and a good overall youth hockey environment.
Be sure to read the entire webpage before registering. There will be a $50 late fee assessed for any registration that occurs after midnight of August 12th.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
For the upcoming season, the age groups are:
This includes Co-Ed teams AND All Girls rostered Lady Falcons teams
Training camp & evaluations details are listed below. Additional information will be emailed to participants & posted below prior to the start of camp & evaluations.
Evaluations are not Tryouts. Evaluations are a mechanism we utilize to appropriately group kids with other similar kids, based on their current skill sets. This method allows us to ensure players are appropriately matched with a team & teammates of similar skill level. Over the course of a few days, we evaluate players individual skating and puck skills, team concept skills and Hockey knowledge. Players are evaluated through a mix of drills & game situations. Our Coaches independent and evaluators will observe the kids during these evaluation sessions & sub divide them after each session. Following the conclusion of evaluations, we will inform players of their team placement for the season.
Players are expected to attend all evaluation sessions unless otherwise told.
Additional details regarding evaluations will be sent to all registrants & posted on this webpage prior to the start of evaluations.
There is no separate fee for just Evaluations.

Club fees cover practice ice and league game ice times. Club fees do not include any potential Team Fees. Club fees at this age level also do not cover the cost of game jerseys or socks which must be purchased by individual families.
Team fees are determined by the individual teams AFTER teams are formed for the season. An example of what team fees may cover include but are not limited to:
Team fees are not optional so in fairness to all individuals on the team, we require any additional team fees to be equally split among the families of those teams, unless other mutual agreements have been put into place by the teams.
All team fees, collection & disbursements will be managed at the individual team level by the team manager. Team managers will be determined at the team level after teams are formed (please consider volunteering for this crucial role). The club encourages teams to fundraise when possible to help offset any possible team cost.
To help team managers succeed, they will be supported by our club level Team Manager coordinator; Brooke Schaub.
Please be sure to reference the correct information below.

Capital Contribution Fund: In August of 2019 the Maryville University Hockey Center opened. This facility is a state-of-the-art ice and multi-sport facility in Chesterfield Valley. This exciting project will help the club thrive and grow throughout the next several decades. As highlighted during the project planning stages, our funding for the project has come from many different sources, with almost a 1/3 (big and small) from a great number of generous donors from across the community. To date, these contributions have total several millions of dollars; with contributions continuing to be pledged as we near construction completion of the project. As we work towards reducing our bank loan debt through methods including / but not limited to - additional facility program revenue, cost reductions, continuous ongoing capital campaigns, and etc. - we have implemented a Capital Contribution Fund of $50 for all club members. This fund is a once a year charge (during the regular season), and it will be utilized to reduce our additional debts as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding and support!
2020-2021 USA Hockey Membership: Free this season for players born in 2014 or later / $46 for players born in 2013 or earlier. If you already signed up for your 2020-2021 USA Hockey Membership Number as part of a Spring or Summer program, you will not need to re-complete this process. Just reference that number during registration. USA Hockey Membership Numbers are good for 1 year.
