As part of the Ice World 8U program, an option for half-ice travel league (CBHL) teams will be formed for the more experienced player. In addition to the Ice World 8U program, CBHL Half-ice teams are also part of the HNS powered by TI Futures program.
8U CBHL Travel teams will play a league schedule which consists of several jamboree format games throughout the season. These games may be scheduled at any DMV area ice rinks which host other league participating teams. These teams may also consider playing single opponent half-ice home or away games. Typically the 8U CBHL half-ice teams play approx. 10 -12 games (jamboree format may include 3 to 4 games in one setting).
Players selected for an 8U Travel team will play league games in the CBHL. These team players will follow the standard 8U program practice schedule. Travel league games will be played representing the Harford North Stars (HNS) as a CBHL league member. Theses teams are considered as part of the "HNS powered by TI Futures" program.
Players selected for an HNS 8U will be required to purchase and HNS game uniform and pay an additional fee amount to participate in CBHL league play.
