Women’s hockey chances set to increase this winter

VAIL – The start of the Mountain Women’s Hockey League for women this winter will increase the chances for women to compete.

This new league is aimed at novice and intermediate players and will take advantage of the ice rinks in Eagle and Vail to provide both practice and game opportunities from October through March.

Teams from Summit County are being encouraged to enter.

In early October, a training camp will be cover basic skating, stick handling and game positioning skills. These camps will be held at both Eagle and Vail ice rinks.

At the conclusion of the training camps, teams of approximately equal skill levels will be formed and the teams will play each other several times during the season, depending on how many teams are formed.

Practice sessions will continue to be held during the season and a championship tournament at the end of the season is planned.

Players will be able to practice and play each week, and opportunities to drop-in to extra games and practices will also be offered.

Coaching will be provided at all practice sessions, which will be divided by ability levels to increase each player’s learning curve.

Any women interested in joining this new league should contact Ginny Crowley at (970) 476-5008 or e-mail mwhl@comcast.net.
