GIRLS HOCKEY

A development program for girls aged 4-14. This is currently structured as a non-competitive program, however, we are hoping to begin to introduce friendly competition with other local girls organizations, with those players who are comfortable.  The main focus of this program is skill development, in which the skills of hockey will be taught and practiced.  As an all-levels program, the girls will be divided based on skill level and age. Skating techniques, skill drills and some scrimmage play will round out the program. The coaching staff is comprised of USA Hockey certified coaches. A great opportunity to learn and further develop skills, while getting some extra ice time to play hockey in a fun and supportive environment!

Teton Valley Foundation is subsidizing the fees for Girls Hockey to encourage participation and grow our program! This is a fun and affordable way to participate in a lifelong sport. Girls Hockey is a supplemental program offered in addition to our co-ed Cutthroats youth hockey team. Girls can participate in both programs. New players welcome!
