FAQ

Can my player still play Spring Sports?

Yes! The CT Breakers program is “Spring Sport Friendly”. Over several years we’ve consulted with parents & coaches to determine the ideal times for practices, and our tournament policy requires no predated commitment from players.

Are the coaches listed for my team actually my on-ice coach for practice?

Yes! Many programs list coaches that will never be on the ice with your player. Our staff is comprised of dedicated, reliable, and professional coaches who have been assigned their team to coach & develop.

Which program is the CT Breakers affiliated with?

The CT Breakers is an independent program and welcomes motivated players from all youth travel programs. Historically Breakers teams have been comprised of players from the Connecticut Junior Rangers, Stamford Youth Hockey Association, Darien Youth Hockey Association, Midfairfield Youth Hockey, Greenwich Skating Club, New Canaan Winter Club, Ridgefield Amateur Hockey Association & many more.

What will tournaments look like this season?

Tournaments this season will be offered as an “a la carte” option. Players will be invited but not required to attend tournaments, allowing them to still participate in spring sports without financially committing to spring hockey tournaments. Twin Rinks will also follow CDC and health officials’ guidance to ensure that tournament attendance is safe and abides by state mandates.

Can I be cut from CT Breakers?

For the Spring 2021 season Breakers teams will be formed via sign-up registration. Twin Rinks is passionate about developing ALL players and wants to provide these players with an opportunity to develop their skills in a team environment.

Is CT Breakers the right program for my player?

The Connecticut Breakers teams are ideal for Travel players looking to add an “extra season” towards their development.
