** Please note, under the Participant Registration tab, you can only choose 2023/24 season. Tryout Packages are available within this season's system, as we have not switched over to the 2024/25 registration system yet. **

  1. ALL COLGHA 2023/24 registered players that are planning to attend Lightning PRE-SKATES and/or TRYOUTS must log into their Ramp REGISTRATION account and PURCHASE A TRYOUT PACKAGE for their age division. Please note: Pre-Skates are open to current 2023/24 registered Lightning players ONLY, that have purchased the tryout package.

U18 B/BB

COLGHA is exploring the option of Two U18 Competitive Teams and One U18 Local League Team for the 2024/25 Season based on our projected registration numbers and 2023/24 season standings for all U15 and U18 teams.  Since U18 is a three year division, COLGHA is discussing all possibilities. Please be patient while we weigh the options. It is very important to COLGHA that we continue to provide ALL girls the opportunity to play hockey in their own community, at the level in which they will develop and thrive.

We encourage all eligible U18 players to try out!!

Good Luck!! COLGHA
