Cheshire, CT – Elite Hockey Program at Cheshire Academy announces Kevin Cunningham as the U18 head coach for the 2016-2017 season. Kevin brings a wealth of expertise and knowledge to the program and will be instrumental in growing the Elite Hockey program.

Cunningham comes to Cheshire Academy from Connecticut College, where he served as assistant men’s hockey coach. Prior to Connecticut College, Cunningham coached at Brown University and Ohio State University.

“Kevin brings hockey knowledge and passion to Cheshire Academy and the Elite Hockey Program,” said Director of Hockey and U16 Head Coach John Toffey. “He has coached ice hockey at some of our country's leading academic institutions. Kevin’s knowledge of the college recruiting process will be very beneficial to Academy students.”

"Kevin Cunningham is a great fit for the Elite Hockey Program. He is first-class coach, a true professional and comes with many years of coaching experience that will contribute to building a successful hockey program here at Cheshire Academy”, said Program Director, Peter Alden.

The Elite Hockey Academy staff works hard to identify both suitable student-athletes and coaches that fit into the Elite Hockey model. Cunningham, along with Elite Hockey Academy staff, will continue to advance the fundamentals of the program and players for future success and growth.

"Given his years of experience on the ice as a coach as well as in higher education as a whole, Kevin is a great addition to the Academy given our goals for the program,” said Associate Head of School and Director of Admission Scott Pottbecker. “Kevin will be able to mentor these student-athletes for life after Cheshire Academy.”

Elite Hockey at Cheshire plays a full season of hockey beginning in September and continuing into March at the tier 1 level. Elite Hockey participates in the top leagues and highly scouted tournaments and showcases to provide the best exposure and development for amateur players.

Upcoming 2016 - 2017 ELITE HOCKEY AAA!

Dear Members and Prospective Families, 

For the past four years, my full-time staff and I have built a highly successful “AAA” hockey program in central Connecticut. Our successes include the advancement of players to the highest levels of the game and most recently, being crowned the 2015 Tier I AAA - U18 USA Hockey National Champions. I am very proud to announce that we are continuing the success and mission, and starting a new chapter as Elite Hockey AAA. 

Earlier today, we received official notice that Elite Hockey AAA has been approved to compete in the prestigious Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL) for the 2016-17 season. This is significant because it enables you to continue your growth and development in the most competitive “AAA” League on the East Coast. 

The vision of the Elite Hockey AAA program is to provide strong development, create big opportunities which in return generate massive results. The innovative and complete development program will field Tier 1/AAA teams from the 2007 birth year through Midget 15U, 16U & 18U levels. All Elite Hockey AAA teams have a committed coaching staff that brings a wealth of experience from both playing and coaching at all levels of hockey (Junior, Prep School, College (D1 and D3) and NHL). 

Elite Hockey AAA also provides a direct link to the Elite Hockey full-season prep school program at Cheshire Academy (www.EliteHockey.Academy). Elite Hockey AAA’s mission is to provide a strong platform for player development by crafting a competitive, skill-focused and team-oriented environment for our players. The Elite Hockey AAA program is geared towards serious student-athletes who understand that academics and athletics go hand-in-hand. Elite Hockey AAA prides itself with weekly skills sessions, excellent competition and exposure at exclusive tournaments. 

All levels will have an aggressive practice and game schedule for the 2016-2017 season and strong Tier 1 league memberships, including the well-respected and highly competitive Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL). News, information, and updates will be posted on the Elite Hockey AAA website, www.EliteHockeyAAA.com. 

Tryouts begin soon (March 13th) so please make sure to register! I look forward to you being a part of the new brand, Elite Hockey AAA! 

Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions.

About the AYHL

About the AYHL

The Atlantic Youth Hockey League is a Tier I travel league comprised of teams from the Atlantic, Southeast, New York and New England districts. The league has over 100 teams that come from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia. It is the league’s mission to develop these young players and move them on to the next phase of their playing careers. The divisions begin at the Squirt level and proceed all the way through the Midgets. The Squirt, PeeWee and Bantam levels all have a Minor and Major component and players typically spend two seasons at a level before moving to the next level. The Major teams are typically the older team, comprised mostly of players playing in their second year at the level. The Midget level is broken up into 16U American, 16U National and 18U.

Tier I Youth teams have a large workload when it comes to their playing commitment. There are more practices, games and tournaments and generally, more traveling done, than with organizations playing at the Tier II or Recreational levels.

At the end of the regular season, all eligible teams will compete for the AYHL Championship at their respective level.
