Welcome to the Whalers Youth Hockey Association

The Whalers is a youth ice hockey organization for boys and girls from locations in Middlesex County and other surrounding towns in the Middletown & Cromwell, CT area. We offer instructional (Learn To Play & House League) and competitive levels of play for children from four years of age through high school.

Our "home ice" is at Champions Skating Center in Cromwell, CT.   We are members of the Connecticut Hockey Conference, CT Valley Midget Hockey League and USA HOCKEY. Our Tier II, III, and IV level Travel Teams play games with similar teams from other organizations around the state and occasionally travel to other locations throughout the region for tournament competition.

Champions Skating Center
 

Champions Policy Update November 11, 2020

 
We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during the COVID season and the recent change to the spectator situation.
 
With that being said, we once again will be allowed 1 spectator per player inside the rink for games and practices. NO SIBLINGS. Coaches still count as the one spectator for their player.
 
PLEASE NOTE: THIS WILL TAKE EFFECT FOR MITES TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) AND THE REST OF THE LEAGUE (Squirts through Midgets) ON SATURDAY.
 
ALSO: THERE IS NO ENTRY THOUGH THE LOWER RINK. All entry MUST go through the upper rink, WITH WAIVERS, before heading to the lower rink. Please do not prop the lower rink entrance door open as that creates a safety issue as well as the possibility of additional people sneaking into the building.
 
IF THERE IS ANY VIOLATION OF THIS ONE SPECTATOR POLICY, WE WILL BE LEFT WITH NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO RETURN TO NO SPECTATORS.

 

 

4. Waivers need to be completed and can be found at  https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/1792/99425.pdf.  
5. LiveBarn is available for viewing (If you haven't signed up yet use the code: cham-pion to save 10%)
 
 
Pandemic Response:
 
 
 
As we start the hockey season we must be prepared when a player or parent in any association becomes symptomatic and/or receives a COVID-19 positive test result.
 
In accordance with state and local privacy and confidentiality laws and regulations, youth sports organizations should notify  local health officials , youth sports program staff, officials and families of any programs with which a confirmed positive COVID-19 player/parent has shared ice/rink space for practices, games or skill sessions   immediately. Please be certain to maintain confidentiality in accordance with the  Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)  and other applicable laws and regulations. Additionally, please notify       CHC President. 
 
Advise those who have had   close contact   with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 to stay home and   self-monitor for symptoms , and to follow   CDC guidance   if symptoms develop. 
 
I have attached a simple chart to help those who test positive and those who were in close contact with someone who tested positive understand isolation/quarantine guidelines. These guidelines are drawn from the Connecticut State Department of Education in collaboration with the DPH.
