Reminder about the Exchange > not just for Gear

Lightning families – wanted to remind everyone that the Exchange is open for our members.  You may use the exchange for traditional gear or intangibles such as locating a family who can share a clinic:

Examples: 

1) Your daughter is interested in June clinic but has swim meets EVERY Tuesday…perhaps another family would be willing to share the clinic and take Tuesdays?

2) Your son is signed up for July clinics but your family will be on vacation the second week of July…perhaps another family would be willing to take that week?

3) Your son has grown 2 ½ feet since mid February and outgrown everything and has new skates that he wore four times… (okay so I am exaggerating a bit but you get the jest). 

To list an item on the exchange just follow the Exchange button on the LEFT side of full website.  

Thanks,

Marcella

Announcing the CLH Girls 2015-15 Program

(Updated 2/26/2015):

Carolina Lightning Hockey is pleased to announce that we have revised our 2015-16 Girls Program to include the following teams:  1-U10/U12 development, 1-U14 National bound, 1-U16 National Bound and 1-U19 Team.

(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
