Girls hockey: does your daughter want a challenge?

July-1-S-Girls-Hockey-SCBy Scott Bushweller Director of CSB Girls Hockey

The Chittenden South Burlington Hockey Association (CSB) has seen tremendous growth in girls’ hockey the past few years. Girls enjoy hockey because it’s fast, fun, challenging, and a great opportunity to make new friends.

CSB offers U8, U10, U10/U12 development, U12, and U14 girls’ hockey programs. For the upcoming season CSB needs three more girls to play on the U14 girls’ team. Girls 13 or 14 years old that know how to ice skate and would like to try hockey; longtime coach Robin Hall is at the ready. Involved in girls’ hockey for many years and passionate about getting more girls to try the sport, Hall is also willing to assess skating skills and offer advice prior to the start of the season.

Goaltenders are always in high demand. For softball catchers and those that play goalie for field hockey, lacrosse, or soccer, goaltending is an easy transition. Hockey season runs mid-October through February with two practices a week at Cairns Arena and two weekend games. Typically there is one home game and one away game. Games are played against other Vermont teams and do not involve significant travel. Email Scott Bushweller at sbushweller@comcast.net or call him at 922-4642 if interested in girls’ hockey.
