Philosophy and Policies: It is our goal to continue to build the girls' hockey program by developing young women to be better hockey players and better individuals; both on and off the ice. We believe that family, school and God come first and our hockey program is an extension of the TG classroom.
We Expect From Each Player:
1) To work hard and improve their own skills.
2) To understand that the team comes first and all decisions made are for the betterment of the team.
3) A positive attitude at all times, during school, practice, games, and in the locker room.
4) Respect your teammates, coaches, opponents, referees, parents, spectators.
We are looking for hockey players that want to play with a dynamic team with great team chemistry and spirit led by a dedicated coaching staff with very high expectations of each individual team member.
