Girls Hockey for the 2015-2016 Season!

PY-Girls-LogoThe first year of Girls Hockey with the Phantoms Youth was a success! With hard work and a little luck, everything came together for the inaugural season of our Girls Program! The Phantoms Youth Girls Division was accepted into MAWHA (Mid-Atlantic Women’s Hockey Association) and competed in the 14u Division against teams such as the Quakers, NJ Colonials, and Hershey Bears. We also started a Developmental Program for girls who are new to hockey but who really want to learn! We are excited to announce that Head Coach Lauren Patterson will be back again for next season and we have even more exciting plans in the works. Over the summer, the 14u Girls team will be participating in a mini-camp in Rochester run by Digit Murphy of the Boston Blades and Kacey Bellamy of the USA Olympic team! Following camp, they’ll be playing in the first tournament of the 2015 season! In addition to our 14u Girls travel team, we plan to field a 10u Girls travel team for this upcoming season. We also hope to add a 16u independent team, and we will continue our Developmental Program for girls who want to learn the game!

Some of the benefits to joining the Phantoms Youth Girls Program include additional one-on-one training with Dave Bauer, off-ice team building events, at least one practice with AHL Phantoms players and the excitement of belonging to a newly emerging girls program with opportunities to make a big impact!

Spread the word and join the fun! If you have any questions, or would like to learn more about what our Girls Program is about, please contact New Player Coordinator Karen Trackim by clicking here.
