Pistorino participates in USA Hockey National Development Camp

Jessica Pistorino recently participated in the 2019 USA Hockey Girl’s 15 National Development Camp held July 12-17, 2019 at the Herb Brooks Hockey Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

The camp provides top players from across the United States, selected for the camp after a competitive tryout, the opportunity to train and compete against each other while receiving on and off-ice training and coaching.  In addition, the camp serves as an evaluation platform for players vying to represent the United States at international tournaments and other hockey events.  

Charlestown Youth Football Making Impact

Under the continued leadership of Kelliegh and Scott Moses, the Charlestown Youth Football (CYF) program is making a huge impact in both cheering and football. In addition to piling up league championships and providing area high schools with sensational talent, CYF is giving kids of all ages a chance to develop confidence and create lifelong friendships. Charlestown HS football head coach Dave Cahill (himself a charter coach when CYF was established) has seen first-hand how far the program has come. The Townie high school team has no fewer than 10 CYF graduates on the roster and many local high schools are sprinkled with both cheerleaders and players from the program. Nichols senior Eddie Evers and Franklin Pierce sophomore Jonte Joseph are even representing the program at the collegiate level.

Youth Hockey

It may have been 85 degrees and sunny lately, but Charlestown Youth Hockey Association (CYHA) players have hit the ice skating sharp this fall season, with most teams starting their parity rounds in early September.

By all accounts, officials from the CYHA have indicated that numbers are way up once again and growing in skill and level of competition.

This year there are 11 co-ed/boys teams competing, with four levels of Mite teams. There are also four teams of girls-only squads competing as well.

Makes no difference if it’s cold or hot, the hockey season has started in Charlestown.
