Colorado (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
At summer's end, Colorado's inline hockey student athletes will prepare for the upcoming middle school and high school competitive inline hockey fall and winter seasons. Combined with the already successful high school and middle school leagues, CHSIHL plans to introduce several new programs that will promote the importance of continued athletic development year round. Student athletes will have the opportunity to continue their inline hockey training through out the year in a professional and structured environment that will give them an advantage for the start of the new scholastic inline hockey seasons.
"With continuing opportunities offered to the inline hockey player in the amateur, collegiate and professional levels, it has become more evident of the need for an upscale training and educational environment that will provide the much needed exposure and college preparation for our student athletes," says Eddie Delgado, Founder of the CHSIHL.
The 2005 inaugural middle school season was a tremendous success with just under 25 teams and over 275 students representing middle schools from across the Front Range. The 2008 middle school season hopes to bring twice the amount of participants from previous seasons, demonstrating that scholastic league competition is where it's at for youth inline hockey.
The CHSIHL programs hope to be the missing piece to the overall puzzle toward building the complete inline hockey athlete. The organization's goals are to establish a year-round program for the student athlete encompassing all the necessary components for continual league competition, structured skills training camps, strength and conditioning programs, regional conditioning testing combines and college preparation.
But wait! The CHSIHL is not done yet. The high school season will begin it's 8th season with the state's first and exclusive high school tournament series. The CHSIHL Scholastic State Invitational Tournament (SIT) will be one of the year's most exciting and challenging high school tournaments ever to come to Colorado. This December's pre-season challenge will host over 40 of Colorado's top high school inline hockey teams in the varsity, and junior varsity divisions. In addition, a special tournament segment will exist for the middle school Gold, Silver and Bronze divisions as well, with an invitations going out to other regional and national high school inline hockey teams from around the country.
The future of youth inline hockey appears to be great for the Colorado inline hockey student athlete.
