U14 Jr. Shamrocks To Compete In Inaugural Season
The Junior Women's Hockey League governing board recently announced their intention to introduce a U14 Division to begin play during the upcoming 2015-16 season.
The Junior Women's Hockey League (JWHL) is a USA Hockey registered U19/Canadian Intermediate AA League consisting of some of the best teams in North America. The league plays most of its games on college campuses guaranteeing outstanding competition and maximum player exposure to college and National Team coaches. In addition to its Major Junior Division described above, the League recently expanded to include a younger Junior Division and will now introduce an even younger U14 Division to begin play during the upcoming 2015-16 season.
The U14 Division is expected to include several weekend showcases to be played alongside their JWHL Major Junior and Junior Division counterparts. The U14 Division is expected to commence JWHL play in Boston from October 8th through 11th. Additional U14 JWHL Showcases are anticipated for Buffalo, New York and Washington, D.C., among possible other sites.
In addition to playing in the New England Girls Hockey League (NEGHL), the U14 Boston Jr. Shamrocks will also compete in the JWHL U14 inaugural season.
The U14 full season Jr. Shamrocks will receive approximately 50 practices (two practices per week.); 10 weeks of off-ice sessions at Mike Boyle's S&C; weekly shooting, stick handling and skating skills/training sessions; weekly goalie specific skills & training sessions; along with team equipment and apparel.
