The Premier All-Girls Hockey Development Program

Shoreline Sharks Connecticut Girls Hockey

Started in 2000, Shoreline Sharks Youth Hockey is a non-profit organization dedicated to offering developmental and competitive hockey programs for girls ages 4-19. We are the largest girls' hockey program in Southern Connecticut, with over 250+ participants registered for last season. 

Our core programs include travel teams at multiple competitive levels from development to experienced with our CGHL (U8 - U19), Tier I (U12), and national bound Tier II (U14, U16 & U19). Our purpose is to grow the game by introducing and teaching hockey to beginners through our Learn to Play and Try Hockey for Free events. 

We're passionate about girl's hockey and are proud of our development-first focus for all levels of play from girls new to the sport to nationally competitive players.  

Welcome to the Sharks!

At the base level, all youth hockey clubs have the same purpose: to provide programming that enables kids to play hockey. However, the execution is the differentiator.

Here are our core priorities:  

  • Strong, positive organizational culture grounded in principles and shared values
  • Player development-centric organization focused on helping each player reach their potential and next level of play
  • Absolute focus on growing the game through our Learn to Play Clinics, reaching girls of all ages (4 – 19)
  • Membership in multiple leagues (CGHL, CHC, and NEGHL) to achieve the ideal competitive balance for each team
  • Tiered travel team structure allows us to offer multiple teams (11 in total) at most age brackets (U08 - U19), optimizing growth and development at all levels of play
  • Extensive development opportunities outside of team practice, including a best-in-class goalie training program, in-season skill sessions, tournament opportunities, and pre-season camps
  • Top-tier coaching team using a consistent methodology that aligns with the USA Hockey American Development Model to optimize development
  • Champions of the girls’ hockey experience, giving access to female role models through our expanding number of female Sharks coaches or our partnerships with like-minded organizations like Pro Crease Goaltending or the QU Women’s Hockey Team.

Our 90% retention rate and consistently positive feedback tell us we're delivering our players an exceptional hockey experience. We hope to see you on the ice.
