Announcing our GIrls Skills and Small Games Spring Program!

The Wilmette Girls Hockey Coaches will provide  skill instruction in developmentally appropriate small groups and run a fun and challenging 3vs3 session each week.

The skill sessions will emphasize power skating, including edgework such as crossovers and working with inside and outside edges.  The sessions will also focus on stickhandling, shooting, passing and small area battle games to enhance reaction time.

Girls "Try Hockey Day" A Huge Success-Check Out The Video Below

The Girls "Try Hockey day" on December 14 was a huge success.  25 girls in an age range from three to twelve years old, came out and tried hockey for the first time. Players and coaches from Wilmette U12 and U14 girls teams were joined by players from Loyola's Girls Hockey program to make sure these "new" hockey stars had a great time.  This hour of introduction to hockey included skating, fun drills, and playing in small scrimmages.  After this event, many of the "new" skaters stayed to watch the Wilmette Hockey girls as they took on the Tigers from Albert Lee, MN.  Great morning of fun for everyone.
