USA Hockey To Hold ‘Girls Tier I Community Conversation’ In Oxford
In conjunction with the U18 Select Camp this July in Oxford, Ohio, USA Hockey will gather important stakeholders within the Tier I level of Girls Hockey to get the conversation going.
From July 15-16, discussions will take place around the topics of hockey development, rules and regulations, National Championships, and club support. Also included will be brainstorming sessions and a presentation from the U-18 National Team Coaching Staff on player development.
Kudos to USA Hockey for hosting such an event. The hockey world is pretty small, the women’s side of the game smaller.
Nothing moves forward or get’s solved without dialogue. And the U-18 Select Camp provides a perfect opportunity to gather coaches and administrators as well as club personnel – who care about the direction of the game and how to improve it.
I’ll keep you updated about what we hear.
