by posted 08/21/2014
 

9/2 update: 

Congratulations to the Carolina Lightning teams for excellent showings in the Southeast Early Bird Tournament (Prime Time) this weekend.  Three of the Lightning teams played in their championship games!

  • U16AA played teams from East Coast Eagles and Columbia to earn first seed in final.  The Lightning U16AA boys won the championship 2-1 against ECE in very exciting game. 
  • PeeWee A team won their championship game against East Coast Eagles PeeWee A 2-1.  Perfect game boys!
  • Squirt A’s made it to the championship game by beating ECE Squirt AA and RYHA Squirt AA teams.  The Lightning Squirt A played gallantly in championship rematch against RYHA Squirt AA with final score of 7-5. 

The teams and their championship banners have been added to the Wall of Champions. Way to go Lightning!!

8/20 update:

All,

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.

Regards,

Don

Carolina Lightning Sponsorship Program

Lightning Parents and Potential Sponsors,

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.
 
Participation is entirely voluntary but very much appreciated. This is a great opportunity to highlight your business on Lightning jerseys at games and tournaments. Please review the Sponsorship Program details on the Lightning website Documents page at
http://carolinalightninghockey.com/Documents.asp?n=83502&org=carolinalightninghockey.com

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.
Regards
Don Schaap
President
