CCVHC's Alger and Dold named PIHL All-Stars

Central Catholic Vikings Hockey varsity players Beckam Alger, '23, and Jakob Dold, '23, were named to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL) All-Star roster for their achievements over the 2020-21 season. 

Forward Alger finished the season with 11 points (5 goals; 6 assists) over the course of 16 games. He was trailed closely by forwards Dante Scalise, '24, and George Coyle, '24, who both also tallied 11 points, but over 18 games.

Goalie Dold, '23, recorded a .905 save percentage over 17 games, which included two shut-out victories.  Dold was recognized for one of those wins this season by Pittsburgh Hockey Digest


CCVHC Schedules Banquet and Sets Tryout Dates

Although "May" is not normally considered a big month for ice hockey, this year -- like everything else this year -- is not a normal year.   So, Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Club (like nearly all youth hockey programs nationwide) will be very busy over the next month. 

When USA Hockey pushed back the "2020-21 National Championship" schedule for certain age groups, it had a nationwide trickle-down effect as it compressed the available weeks for teams to schedule their 2021-22 tryouts.   Similarly,  when the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL) extended its season deep into April, it forced teams to delay banquets and other commemorations to May, as well. 

CCVHC 2020-21 Banquet. The end-of-season banquet to celebrate the 2020-21 Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Club players will be held on May 11, 2021 at Longue Vue Club (6 pm - 9 pm). Despite limited availability at local venues in May, as well as Covid-19 occupancy restrictions, it has been CCVHC's goal to honor its players who all demonstrated, in the face of adversity and uncertainty, true strength, grit and character.

The May 11 banquet will also honor the Club's Class of 2021.  The five graduating seniors are Ethan Iaccio, JoJo Palahunik, Alex Pampena, Alejandro Pietz and Adam Tabaka. Central Catholic High School will hold its baccalaureate mass and commencement on May 25, 2021.

The banquet will feature a full-service dinner buffet, to be followed by an awards ceremony and other activities.  Invitations were emailed to all CCVHC families, coaches, managers and other guests. Online registration for the event will close on May 4, 2021.  Please contact Lisa Pampena ( if you have any questions about the banquet.

CCVHC 2021-22 Tryouts. Tryout sessions for the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams for the  2021-22 season will be held on May 17, May 20, May 24 and May 27. All sessions will be from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Alpha Ice Complex in Harmarville, PA.  Online registration for tryouts is LIVE. See,, for more information!

The tryout registration for the 2021-22 CCVHC Middle School/Bantam team will open in early June. Tryouts for that team will be held in early August.

All current tryout information will be posted on the CCVHC website. Please check frequently for any updates. If you have any questions about  CCVHC tryouts, please contact Head Coach Bill Connelly ( 

For the 2021-22 season, returning to "a normal hockey schedule" was also a Club priority.  So that there is ample time for the CCVHC board members, coaches and volunteers to prepare for the upcoming season, CCVHC Junior Varsity and Varsity tryouts are typically held in May.  After the 2021-22 JV and Varsity teams are announced, CCVHC will be seeking volunteers to serve on various open committee and, subject to CCHS administration approval, board positions. CCVHC welcomes your help!
