Bookmark this page!! The Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Club Middle School/Bantam team "tryout" registration is still open! Please see the link above to register! *Only limited roster spots still available.*

The team plays in the Tier 1 level of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL). All practices are held at Alpha Ice Complex in Harmarville, PA. The team is "amateur team friendly" and has two practices per week. 

As both of Central Catholic's middle school goalies have graduated, there is a rare opportunity for interested goalies to get a lot of quality time in net. 

If you or your son is interested in learning more about playing on the Central Catholic Vikings Hockey 2022-2023 Bantam/Middle School team and exploring Central Catholic as a college preparatory high school option, please do not hesitate to contact Central Catholic Vikings Hockey and/or the CCHS Office of Admissions. You may also contact the Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Club Head Coach William Connelly.

As CCHS does not have a middle school, the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade members of the Bantam/Middle School team may be enrolled at any public, private, parochial or charter school, irrespective of where they live, so long as they have a good faith interest in considering CCHS.  For the 2022-2023 season, the Birth Year ("BY") for Bantam/Middle School team players must be either 2008 or 2009.  It is CCVHC's goal to offer a roster spot to every interested age-eligible player (BY2008 & BY2009).

Subject to Mid-Am Hockey rules, the percentage of 2nd year peewee players (BY 2010) who are eligible to "play up" to a bantam team is limited. If your son is a BY 2010 (2nd year peewee) player, please contact Coach Connelly to discuss CCVHC Bantam/Middle School team roster eligibility prior to registration. All Bantam/Middle School players are required to have current USA Hockey membership and baseline concussion testing.

Central Catholic is proud that, every year, nearly every 8th grade member of the Bantam/Middle School team enjoys the experience so much that he chooses Pittsburgh Central Catholic as his high school.  Roll Vikes!
