The Potomac Patriots will be joining the Capital Corridor Hockey League (CCHL) for the fall of 2018/19 season. Four age groups (10U to 18U) will be participating in the CCHL.
The transition been presented to our head coaches and 10U to 18U house families. The response has been significantly in favor of this move.
This move does not impact the House Mite Program. Nor would the Spring House Weekend Hockey Program change.
