Cape Cod Kings

ABOUT THE CAPE COD KINGS

The Cape Cod Kings are part of a much larger “family” of Kings teams. Since the Cape and Boston merger in November of 2017, the Central Mass Kings, Pioneer Valley Kings (Western Mass) and the 617 “City” Kings are now part of the family. The Kings family is now made up of 5 club programs collectively with over 1,000 players playing on over 45 teams.

2018-19 Tryout Registration

Youth Teams

2023 “Blue” Team (8th graders)

2024 “Blue” Team (7th graders)

2023/24 “White” Team (7/8th graders)

2025 “Blue” Team (6th graders)

2026 “Blue” Team (5th graders)

2025/26 “White” Team (5/6th graders)

2027/28 “Blue” Team (3/4th graders)
Our goal is to have separate 2027 & 2028 teams for the spring & summer of 2019.  We will play as 1 team for the Fall and train together until those numbers are reached.

Team Rosters:
4 to 5 – Attackmen
6 to 7 – Midfielders
4 to 6 – Defensemen/LSM (see final 2 bullets below)
1 or 2 – Goalies

  • The CCKings reserve the right to roster their teams as they see appropriate for each team based on the talent pool provided.
  • Our “Blue” teams represent the top 17-20 players at a respective age level.
  • Our “White” teams are comprised of players that did not make their respective “Blue” teams, but still want a place to continue developing their skills knowing some players blossom a little later than others.
  • The CCKings reserve the right to move players between “Blue” & “White” rosters if we feel it is best for the individual and or the team.  This provides incentive for “White” team players and allows us to move a player down if we feel it is in the best interest of a player’s development to play a larger role on a “White” team to increase confidence and or playing time.
  • Long poles are not introduced to our players until 5th grade. We feel it is detrimental to the development of a young defenseman’s basic skill set with the stick, defensive footwork and overall approach to the game.
  • All 2027 & 2028 players (with exception of the goalies) will be provided opportunities to play all 3 field positions in an effort to build overall game IQ and to begin to identify what position players are best suited to play down the road.
