16U Girls Tournament Champs


Can hockey get any better than this?  The Jr Hurricanes U16 girl's team was truly on fire at the Ignite the Ice Tournament in Cleveland, OH this past weekend and brought home the championship trophy in an incredibly decisive fashion. 

Over the course of 5 games in less than 48 hours, these 12 young women outscored their opponents 26-5 with the first three games being shut outs (way to go Noelle & Courtney!).  Despite a short bench of 2 lines & having only a few weeks of practice together, a team mentality prevailed with each girl contributing time & time again.  Coach Kevin Thomas provided steady leadership & a solid game plan, giving the players feedback before, during, & after the games which allowed them to persevere even when facing a 3-2 deficit in the final game.  The team rallied back from that challenge to come out victorious. This is the way to start a season!

2016-17 Free Goalie Clinic

Goalies Only Clinic - Birth Years 2003-2011

September 28 through February 22 at Raleigh Center Ice

Every Wednesday @ 6:40 p.m.

There will be No Charge for this Goalie Clinic

Goaltending is about more than just making saves. In these clinics we'll work on
the basics of skating, lateral movement, save selection, and rebound control. In
addition to these fundamentals, we will be working on game situations
(1v1, 2v1, 3v2), pass-outs, walk-outs, post coverage and breakaways. We'll talk
about managing our zone, the importance of communication with our defensemen,
and throw in some stick handling, passing and shooting as well.
This clinic is open for both goalies with and without experience.
