The Charlotte RUSH travel teams compete in the USA Hockey Tier II classification and are members of the Carolinas Hockey League (CHL). The Jr. Checkers will field teams at the Squirt 10U (2007 & 2008 birth years), Peewee 12U (2005 & 2006 birth years), Bantam 14U (2003 & 2004 birth years), 16U (2001 & 2002 birth years) and 18U (1999 & 2000 birth years).
The team's CHL games, in addition to strong tournament and non-league schedules, form a competitive environment for the players to gain experience as well as to test their progress as individuals and as a team. As proponents of USA Hockey’s American Development Model and Hockey Canada's Canadian Development Model, the RUSH utilize quality ice time that values practices and proper training above all else. Some principles of the program include focusing on FUN and Skill Development. We believe that "Skill Development is the Goal and Winning is an Outcome", pursuing age-specific Long-Term Athlete Development, teaching Teamwork, Hard Work, Respect, and Accountability, and a sense of "community" within the club to help its participants become better hockey players and good citizens.
