Here is the latest update on the PTH Labor Day Tournament.
The following teams will be participating ONLY. Squirt A, Peewee B and Peewee A (both participating in the Peewee A bracket) and U16AA.
There was not enough interest and participation from other teams to have Bantam B and U16A brackets. Bantam A didn't have enough available players and U16A had the choice of playing AA or waiting until a more competitive tournament. I spoke with all the coaches and they are in full agreement and part of our decision.
Monies collected will be posted to all player accounts and if parents have paid in full, it will be put toward an additional tournament or refunded at a later date.
Jerseys for those participating in the tournament will be handled by our Registrar, Ms. Kim Mazzitelli.
If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Murphy or Marc Genest.

Carolina Lightning Hockey's Sponsorship Program has been developed to support the growth of, and to benefit the entire Lightning organization.
We have multiple levels of sponsorship support embedded into our program, to facilitate those sponsoring the Lightning (you as a business or parent), directed to individual teams, and/or large organizational/corporate sponsorships to support the organization as a whole. Either way, Lightning sponsorships will benefit your child in some form or fashion.
Additionally, if you have the professional skill to help guide/run this effort and represent the Lightning organization in support of obtaining corporate sponsors , it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me to get involved.
On behalf of all our great kids, and the entire Lightning organization, thank you for your consideration and support.
