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.

World Girls Hockey Weekend!

We are pleased to announce that National Team member and two-time Olympian Kelli Stack will be attending our Foundation and Mini-Lights session this Saturday, October 10th, as part of USA Hockey's and IIHF's World Girls Hockey Weekend!!!!

In conjunction with this, we are designating this weekend as "Bring a Friend for Free".  We are encouraging all girls to bring a friend to Saturday and/or Sunday's sessions.  To encourage the girls, we will be offering FREE HOT CHOCOLATE (doesn't get much better.....) both days so they can warm up after playing on the ice together.  Even if you don't think your daughter's friend is ultimately interested in pursuing hockey, that doesn't matter.  The important thing is that they have a fun day on the ice and meet a positive female role model.

Please spread the word - this event is open to all girls, not just those registered.

We do ask that anyone interested register online at www.nlgh.com so that we can plan accordingly (click "Online Registration" from the left menu, "Register Here!", scroll down to "USAH Try Hockey For Free" registration). Per USAH, every skater must have a helmet, skates, and gloves.  Helmet can be any type as long as it fits properly and is in good condition, skates can be either hockey or figure, and gloves can be simple winter gloves.  We will have loaner equipment available, so no one should be discouraged because they don't own the appropriate gear.
