California Spring Select League

The California Spring Select League is designed to keep travel hockey players in game shape during the off-season. This year we have increased the game count to 12 games. Select League is open to whole teams and unattached players who are ready to make the next step toward joining a travel hockey team. All players must register in their USA Hockey 2024-25 Season Age Classifications. No playing down a division is allowed. Participants may only be on one roster in the Select League and cannot play in more than one division (With the exception of High School teams and Jr High).

All gams will be held at the following facilities:
Great Park Ice, The Rinks - Anaheim ICE, KHS ICE, Lakewood ICE & Yorba Linda ICE
The SD division is subject to having enough teams to field a division out of Poway ICE
