Comet Press ~

St. Paul, MN 7/1/2018

Hello Hockey Fans, time for our mid-season update! All four Comet groups are off and rolling and having fun getting better.

The GCHL has been a huge success. The veteran bar-dingers have been at it now for a couple months and the crowd as well as the hockey has grown each week.

Our HIGH SCHOOL group has been a bit of a surprise this summer. A lot of hockey players in the process of making the huge jump from skater who plays on a team, to talented hockey players, able to make critical plays and see the ice in order to make teammates better.

Our Bantam and PeeWee groups have had a little time off for summer, but by the end of the month all four groups will be rolling in full swing once again. 

Quick important scheduling note. FINALLY I have gotten around to updating the last remaining times for PeeWee and Bantam practices and have included the Acceleration MN North training for our peewee skaters to their calendar as well.

We are very excited once again to offer local, high quality spring and summer hockey instruction for your Hockey Players. Now in our 8th year of operation we have helped literally 100's of hockey players reach their goals of playing Varsity High School hockey as well as continue on into the ranks of junior hockey, college commitments, and beyond.

The key reason the program is a success is we believe in keeping the game fun and affordable and providing the right opportunities to help your player improve, love the game and enjoy coming to the rink and working hard. The Comets program is also designed to allow your athletes to also participate in other activities such as baseball, lacrosse, soccer etc... or just be a kid, spending time at the lake, or holding down a summer job. 

We utilize 90-minute practice sessions to reduce the number of trips to the arena. We schedule those practice sessions so they work with your schedule, and improve skills, make new friends and prepare for try-outs and next year's regular season. 

Some AAA programs concentrate on competing in tournaments all summer long, and this also leads to extravagant program prices and unfortunately can lead to player burn-out. We use participation in select tournaments as a way of putting the things we are working on into game conditions, in order to further the development. We win our fair share of tourneys but it will never be the reason the Capital City Comets program exists.

We would like to call your hockey player a Capital City Comet. Sign up today to lock in your skaters' spot in the program.

Any questions, please feel free to contact DJ Johnston at and follow the program on Twitter @capcitycomet #Go Comets!!!

What We're All About...

The Capital City Comets are back for more and this summer we're expanding our hockey opportunitiesImage_1.jpg to help more area skaters IMPROVE THEIR GAME!

Many summer AAA programs focus solely on tournaments and games... and the Capital City Comets philosophy has always been about improving player skills to better prepare each skater for success when the games REALLY MATTER.

For more details, check out the PROGRAM DETAILS page for all that's included at each age group and the price, which we are very pleased is still the best value is summer AAA hockey!

Also, this year the organization will once again included online-bill-pay, right on the website to make that portion of the program even more user friendly.

The Comets want you and your skater to be a major part of our success!
