Carolina Lady Thunderbirds Ice Hockey Scholarship Program

The Carolina Lady Thunderbirds are offering a scholarship to 20 girls in the Triad!!! 
"Girls ice hockey has shown healthy growth over the past few years in the triad with fantastic support from our community, collaborating with local organizations and wonderful volunteers. This season we will have girls in LTP (Learn to Play) LTG (Learn to Game), 8U girls playing with the local mites program, a full 10-12U team, 14-19U team and our first 12-14U select team playing in the CHL. Last year we were able to help 16 young girls to try ice hockey for the first time! We already have 3 girls signed up for this season so 17 spots remain! Our goal is to have enough girls registering each year to have a team in each 2 year age group."
