Chiefs Girls Hockey Program

Girls Hockey is the 3rd fastest growing team sport in the United States and the Chiefs Hockey Club is proud to offer a dedicated Girls Hockey Program for our female athletes. We fielded our first all-girls team in 2018-19 and they competed in the 10U girls NIHL-gold division finishing in 19-12-4, with a 3rd place finish during the regular season and then playing in the championship game of the NIHL Playoffs.   Our inaugural team competed in 4 tournaments and played in the championship game of all 4.

Moving into 2019-20, the Chiefs have expanded our Girls Program to 2 teams with the continuation of our 10U team and the addition of a team at the 12U level.   We are currently looking for a few players at both levels to round out our rosters.  Both teams will compete in NIHL for the 2019-20 season.   The Club is planning further expansion in future seasons to keep up with the demands.


The Chiefs are currently running dedicated summer clinics for girls hockey players which will focus on individual skills development in areas like power skating, agility, puck handling, passing, shooting, and situational hockey.   Summer clinics are run by former Division 1 girls hockey players (and local hockey legends) Fiona McKenna and Hannah Zarzecki.   Fiona played college hockey at Princeton and Hannah played at Harvard.   Summer clinics are $25 per session (pay at door) and the dates are scheduled for:

  • July 7th - 4:40 PM - Edge Ice Arena
  • July 21st - 4:40 PM - Edge Ice Arena
  • August 4th - 4:40 PM - Edge Ice Arena
  • August 18th - 4:40 PM - Edge Ice Arena

Registration is currently OPEN!!  Evaluations and Tryouts for our 2019-20 teams are scheduled for August 19th.   After tryouts, teams will be formed in anticipation of an early-September start to the 2019-20 season.   Attending one/all of the summer clinics above is a great way to learn more about our program and/or to get ready to play for one of our teams in the fall.   Registration for the 2019-20 season is currently open.  Here are some details on the upcoming Girls Hockey Season:

  • Cost for 10U is $2,035 (significantly lower than most other NIHL girls programs for the same/more development and ice time)
  • Cost for 12U is $2,310 (significantly lower than most other NIHL girls programs for the same/more development and ice time)
  • When registering, you will pay $275 (goes towards dues above) and be refunded $250 should your daughter not make the team
  • Girls teams are guaranteed 40+ practices, additional skills clinics, 16-22 NIHL league games, NIHL playoffs, State Tournament, and 1 out-of-town tournament
