Welcome! Golden State Elite Hockey is a youth tier ice hockey program for Northern California players from Pee Wee to Midget 18. We are the top performing tier program in the state.
Last season's performance: 100% of teams (6 teams) went to playoffs, 2 state titles, 1 National bid, average per team winning percentage: 73.6%, average goals fielded per game per team: 4.00, average goals allowed per game per team: 2.31, 6 players made BCHL Spruce Kings' Prospect Camp All-Star team, 16 players went to CAHA Selects, and 4 teams ranked in the top 70 nationally.
Our 18U AA team was a finalist at the International Silverstick tournament in Sarnia over the MLK weekend. They fell short in the championship game against the Caledon Hawks, the #1 team in Ontario. They beat Team Midwest (#28 in the US), Gulf Coast Flames, Ted Reeve Thunder (#5 in Ontario), and tied the Aurora Tigers (#18 in Ontario).
We have an impressive 30 players that either made NORCAL Selects or are alternates. That is nearly twice the number we had last year and 40% of our eligible players. These players will move onto CAHA Selects in January.
Congrats to these players for being selected or placed on the alternates list:
