Top 20 AA Club in the USA

Welcome! Golden State Elite Hockey is a youth tier ice hockey program for Northern California players from 12U to 18U.  We are the top performing tier program in the state and we have been ranked in the top 20 AA clubs in the US by Culturama.

Our rinks are in Cupertino, San Francisco, and Vacaville. 

Last season was greatly affected by COVID-19. We managed to create some sort of season for our members, but it was limited.  We had two teams make the State playoffs and one of those teams went to the finals.  We are looking forward to returning to something resembling normal in the Fall.
