Welcome to the Northern Lights Girls Hockey Website!
Players with the Northern Lights come from Connecticut, Western Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Connecticut Northern Lights teams compete at the highest level in state, regional and national play as members of the New England Girls Hockey League and the Connecticut Hockey Conference. However, the Northern Lights also provide multiple opportunities for girls who are looking for a less serious or more recreational commitment to participate in the sport of ice hockey.

I hope everyone is having a great summer! Believe it or not, hockey season is right around the corner! The Northern Lights are deep into planning another successful season. Here are a few items to help you plan and get ready for the season:
Our first night of ice will be Thursday, September 3rd for U12 and older teams. U8 & U10 will begin on Saturday, the 5th.
We will continue to skate on Mondays and Thursday nights for practice at the ISCC. Practice times will be posted shortly.
This year we are excited to announce team pre-season skills sessions, run by Dan Giordano at the ISCC. The schedule is as follows:
U8/10 - 8/6 at 6:20pm, 8/18 at 6pm
U12 – 8/13 at 6:30pm, 8/20 at 6pm
U14 – 8/6 at 7:40pm, 8/18 at 7:10pm
U16/19 – 8/13 at 7:40pm, 8/20 at 7:10pm
The ‘price’ for this clinic is to bring us a completed form (available on the NLGH website) with the names of 3 girls who might be interested in our ‘Foundation’ program (age 5-9 years). This will help us grow at the younger ages, which is important to our long-term success! We ask that you make best efforts at this, but don’t stay away if you can only come up with 1 or 2!
Our 2nd Annual Golf Tournament at Blue Fox Run is scheduled for Friday, October 9th. Please SAVE THE DATE and plan on joining for golf or (for non-golfers) dinner & drinks!
Our annual season kickoff will be Saturday, Sept 12th at the ISCC – please block the whole afternoon to be able to play some scrimmages and to participate in the cookout!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the division directors – contact information is available on our website.

By going 4-1-1 in the 6 game season, we qualified to play in the Championship game against the Bulldogs from Central. It was a great game, ending tied 1-1 through 3 periods and overtime. We won the shootout 1-0 thanks to a game winning goal from Mackenzie Gallinoto and Courtney Fairchild shutting out the Bulldog shooters.
