Announcing the CLH Girls 2015-15 Program

(Email sent to current Lightning girls families on 2/10/15)

Folks,

I hope you are all doing well.

I wanted to announce that Carolina Lightning Hockey will be having a 1-U10, 1-U12, 1-U14 and 1-U16 (most likely national-bound) for the upcoming 2015-16 ice hockey season.

We are finalizing the details as we speak and we will be announcing the programs and opening up the registration process in the coming days.

I know that there has been a lot of "talk" and "chatter" going on, but I did want to confirm with all of our Lightning ladies, that we will have 4 girls teams next season with outstanding coaches.

If you know of any girl hockey players that are currently not playing with the Lightning but would like to next season, please pass along my contact information, and if you have any questions, please fee free to contact myself, Cindy Murphy and/or Marc Genest.

We will be in touch shortly.

Regards

Don
