The Travel Black program is designed and offered for the athlete seeking to play at the highest possible Tier II level.  This is the organization's highest level of commitment in terms of cost and time as well as playing level based on skill and ability.  Selection for Travel Black is based on tryouts held May 20-23, 2017.

Practices: U10 - U14 will practice 3 times per week with an addition off ice component tied in with one or more of the ice sessions.  One session will be a combined skill session, one shared ice, and one a 30/30 format (30mins half ice and 30mins full ice).  U16 & U18 will practice twice per week on ice in a 30/30 format.

Games: There will be a mixture of CHL league games, exhibition and tournament games.  CHL and exhibition games will be played within the CAHA district of NC & SC.  Additional game participation in Rec League is available and encouraged throughout the season at no additional cost.
