Carolina Junior Hurricanes Girls U19 Premier Awarded Tier 1 Status

The Junior Hurricanes Girls Program would like to announce that it has been granted Tier 1 status by USA Hockey for the 2021-22 season. This is another first for a team in CAHA and the second Tier 1 team for the girls program. This decision is a direct result of the players and coaches effort this past season in a very unique program for youth hockey.

The Junior Hurricanes Girls Program would like to announce that it has been granted Tier 1 status by USA Hockey for the 2021-22 season. This is another first for a team in CAHA and the second Tier 1 team for the girls program. This decision is a direct result of the players and coaches effort this past season in a very unique program for youth hockey. Tryouts will now be held the weekend of May 8-9 for the coming season.

The Junior Hurricanes U19 Premier program just finished its first season under a Full Time model. Full time looks a lot like what you would see in a college or Junior program:

  • 4 practices a week
  • Professional Off-ice 2x a week
  • Video review 2x a week
  • Dedicated locker room
  • Team travel included
  • Full time coaching staff
  • Sports Psychology
  • Nutritionist
  • Established relationships with D1/D3 college coaches
  • Billeting Available

"We are thrilled that CAHA has recognized the time and effort our Girls leadership has spent building and developing the Girls program not only for the Raleigh area, but for the entire affiliate. While we understand the challenges of building Tier I teams in the Carolinas, our Girl's leadership has put together a solid plan that will pay great dividends for our players for years to come. CAHA Girls players will now have the advantage of being able to stay local an extra year or two, develop through an intensive training program, and be ready when they leave for the next level, both physically and emotionally."
