Michaela Carrera Commits to Salve Regina

 

The Connecticut Northern Lights are proud to announce that Michaela Carrera (Southington, CT) has committed to Salve Regina University (NCAA Division III).

The Northern Lights organization would like to congratulate Michaela, on her recruitment and commitment to Salve. She started in 2012 with the u14 maroon team. With a dedicated and hard working attitude, Carrera has played a big role in the u19 team's success.

"We know as an organization that Michaela will be a great addition to Salve Regina University. Our organization is extremely proud of Michaela and wish her the best in her pursuit of a degree and her hockey career," added Coach Giordano.

"I am excited to announce my commitment to Salve Regina for the upcoming fall. Playing college hockey has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. I want to thank my parents and Coach Giordano for their continuous support. I could not be more thankful for the opportunity I have been given to further my education and develop as a hockey player," commented Michaela.

2and2 Gold!

We are pleased to announce that we have achieved GOLD status for the USA Hockey 2 & 2 Challenge!

The goal of this program is is to acquire 2 new players and retain 2 additional players than the previous season in the 8 and under category.  Our Learn to Skate and Mini Lights Programs far surpassed these goals last year thanks in large part to the efforts of Amy Fairchild, Dan Giordano and others.

A few of the national programs we participated in last year were the Welcome Back Week, the Try Hockey For Free Day.

Our GOLD status earned us:

  • National recognition from USA Hockey
  • Banner for display in your rink
  • Receive $250 credit with Total Hockey. This credit can be used for items that will help your association continue its growth and development.  

Way to go Lights!
