2021-22 Tomahawks Elementary Hockey League

The Tomahawks Elementary Hockey League (TEHL) is designed to provide a fun and positive environment for youth hockey players to develop skills and further understand the rules, positioning and game strategies needed in hockey.  Tomahawks Elementary Hockey League is for players in grades 1 – 4.  Practices and games will take place at the 1st Summit Arena at the Cambria County War Memorial and North Central Recreation Center (NCRC).


The league will follow USA Hockey’s American Development Model.  Players will be evaluated in September and will be placed in groups of similar ability and play games on a level that is comparable to their own to provide an opportunity to gain confidence and continue to develop their skills all while having fun.  The goal is to achieve balanced team numbers and competitiveness.


2021 -2022 Changes:


The TEHL is moving from two divisions to one division in the 2021 – 2022 season.  We are no longer doing the cross ice (Choppers) division and will be only doing the full ice division.  We will be matching lines during the full ice games and incorporating small area games into practices to continue to meet our goals for developing hockey players.
