Come See the Benefits of an All-Girls Hockey Program!
The Mustangs Developmental Program is for girls ages 5 thru 14 who have no experience or very limited experience with hockey. In this program, players will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game and develop the skills and experience necessary to join their age-appropriate CGHL team. (For those familiar with the U12 Developmental team, it is a part of this program.) The Mustangs Developmental Program program runs for the full regular season of mid-September thru early February. Practices are held weekly in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe (whichever location is convenient for you to attend, or both). Depending upon age and skill level, players may participate in scrimmages and games against co-ed teams throughout the season in Albuquerque, and possibly Rio Rancho, Santa Fe Los Alamos and Taos. Full hockey gear is required, and the Mustangs have a limited supply of gear to lend to beginning players. The Mustangs Developmental Program does not require a tryout.
Our Colorado Girls Hockey League teams - U12 (ages 9-12), U15 (ages 13-15), and U19 (ages 16-19) offer the exciting opportunity to engage in recreational hockey against clubs from all over Colorado. This program runs for the full regular season of mid-September thru early February. Practices are held weekly in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The Mustangs CGHL teams do not require a tryout.
Our U19AA Tier II team is a Nationals-bound, tryouts-based competitive team that plays in the Western Girls Hockey League. They travel for league games and tournaments to places such as Arizona, California, Colorado, Utah, and Washington state. Players who qualify for this team are also automatically members of their age-appropriate CGHL team. Following the 2021-2022 season, this team realized their goal by qualifying for the National tournament in Philadelphia! They are setting their sites on Nationals again in 2022-2023.
Our all-volunteer staff of coaches are certified by USA Hockey and have spent years developing their skills in coaching youth hockey, with a focus on the developmental needs of female players. We set a high level of expectation for the abilities and qualifications of our coaches. Our players and parents regularly note the level of attention and instruction provided by our coaching staff.
Our program could not operate without our numerous adult volunteers, most of whom are parents of our players. We have many opportunities to get involved, such as: team managers, game scorekeepers, locker room monitors, association board members, and more.
