CCVHC honored its 2021 viking seniors on March 2 ... and routed Butler for good measure

Each senior was recognized by CCVHC Head Coach Bill Connelly and CCVHC coaches, James Eller, Michael Petrella, Gabe Antoni and Dylan Junker. If you were unable to attend senior night, please see the program below for information about all of the graduating seniors.

The Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Club proudly recognized its five seniors on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at Alpha Ice Complex in Harmarville, PA prior to the team's home game against Butler.

Not to be denied on this special night, the Vikings went into total "storm chaser" mode, blanking the the Golden Tornado squad, 12-0. For detailed game stats, click HERE.

As the 2020-2021 season continues, we hope you will consider a Central Catholic Vikings Hockey sponsorship. So far, we are excited by the support we have received. Our updated list of generous 2020-21 sponsors are listed below ...  

Your donation will go directly to the organization and, if your sponsorship is on behalf of a current CCVHC player, then it reduces the dues owed by the player.

Our primary purpose is two fold ...  to reduce a family's individual expenses, but also increase team/player training and development. This year, achieving this mission, is all the more essential.  In July, after a three-month-long COVID-19 rink closure, and as a result of historic program interest, CCVHC made the decision to field -- for the first time ever -- a fourth team. Even with all of the uncertainties, for all those Central Catholic students who desperately wanted to play ice hockey for their school, this was the right decision to make.  

Committing to fielding a fourth team, however, required the Club to hire an additional non-parent coach, to purchase an entire set of new jerseys, socks and equipment, and to secure sufficient additional ice time for practices.

Not only did the program have to contract extra ice to support the new team, but it had to ensure that it had sufficient ice time so that all teams could continue to have -- for the foreseeable future, and in an abundance of caution -- full ice practices.

Although, pursuant to revised PA gathering limits for indoor sports, CCVHC can now reduce expenses by scheduling "shared ice" practices, we decided that this was not in the best interests of the club or the school right now.  Having full-ice practices not only reduces the number of people on the ice, but cuts locker room congestion by half. By only scheduling full-ice practices, there are fewer than 25 people on the ice at any one time and the 15-20 players can spread out between two locker rooms (rather than each team that is sharing ice having to crowd into just one locker room).

CCVHC, too, is thrilled that it now has a dedicated home rink -- all of its practices will now be held at Alpha Ice Complex in Harmarville, PA. Having a home rink means that we have more opportunities to showcase our school's exceptional student athletes. CCVHC will now be able to hang banners to increase the school's visibility, but we will be able to display team and senior pictures at the rink. 

So, now more than ever, Central Catholic Vikings Hockey needs your support!  Sponsorship is not only great advertising for your business, but also shows your support of CENTRAL CATHOLIC VIKINGS HOCKEY Roll Vikes!


This 7' x 5' banner is hanging in the front lobby of Alpha Ice Complex, just outside the door to the Canada Ice Rink. It features all four of CCVHC 2020-21 teams, along with the club's five graduating seniors. Four corporate sponsorship slots -- one in each corner -- are available.

Your contributions have been -- and continue to be -- crucial to our success in achieving the CCHS promise, "to inspire boys to become Men of Faith, Scholarship and Service."
