Tier II Girls Rule Changes:
On June 9, 2018, USA Hockey approved a proposal to allow 12U players to play up on a 14U team with the following conditions (this is only at the Tier II level): a.) No more than 3 12U players with a 2006 birth year will be permitted to play up if needed to field a Girls’ 14U team with a roster size recommended by the ADM (the roster size for this age group is 16 skaters & 2 goalies); or, b.) There is no 12U Girls team available in the local geographic area. The intent of this approval is mainly for those in more rural areas where gathering female hockey players together is more difficult & the purpose is to give more opportunities to these same females to play on an All Girls’ team.
Girls’ Hockey Weekend

To participate, host sites can utilize; season kick-off party, cross-ice jamboree, try hockey for free, or create an original event to celebrate local female hockey players. *Events are encouraged to be focused on the 8U age group.

Looking for a USAH Sanctioned Tournament
Not all of us have access to a local TV station but with the Olympic Win by the ladies, it is giving a boost for our grass roots efforts. I think our committee member Kris in Indy did a fabulous job promoting what she does best.
Thanks for everything, you all are doing-Great job. Kris on your interview. Don’t forget about “learn to play” coming up next week. Try to use as many older female players and female coaches to assist with the young ladies that attend-makes them feel more secure as you probably already know.
