This past Sunday PVAHA hosted three girls only jamborees for 8U and 10U girls in the greater Capital Region. The events provided a great opportunity for young girls to compete against each other and meet other girls from clubs throughout the area. Girls came from as far as Delaware to join the fun. Kathryn Heaton and Emory Howard, both 8U Ice Dog players, were two of the players representing the NoVA Ice Dogs at the jamboree held at Tucker Road Ice Arena. The 8U players were first to skate but the coaches quickly mixed in the 10U players to form two very competitive teams that played a full 3 period game. The girls were treated to a special appearance by the Maryland Black Bear junior hockey team mascot as well that hung out on the ice and watched the game with them from the bench for a while. All in all it was a great afternoon for girls hockey. A huge thanks to Pam Weiss and PVAHA for organizing the event….the first of many based on the girls’ enthusiasm.
