The inaugural season for GSC’s first all-girls Mite team (ages 6-8) was an
overwhelming success! The season began with 13 girls and 5 additional
joined mid-year to end with two competitive teams in the Chelsea Piers
cross ice league. The girls rated having fun higher than winning, but they
were able to succeed in both. We promise there are some big smiles
underneath the masks below!
How To Get Your Daughter Involved Next Year
Next season, there will be 2-3 all girls Mite teams with 2013-2015 birth dates. Mite
evaluations will take place in early September, look out for sign-ups in your email.
Prior to evaluations, there will be 1-2 “Girls Hockey Open House” events where girls
are given the opportunity to try out ice hockey in a fun, no pressure environment.
We welcome girls that are new to skating and ice hockey.
In addition, head Mite coach Jessica Wiener will be organizing “skate parties” over
the summer to get the girls together, and can offer guidance on hockey camp
offerings. Please email Jessica at
to be added to the
Mini-mites will be offered starting in November for girls 4-7 years old without prior
skating experience. For girls 6-7 years old, there is the option to move up to a
beginning Mite team mid-season based on ability and availability.
Additional Team Details…
There will be two practices each week for all Mite teams. Games will be in the
Chelsea Piers Mite B/C division (Saturday mornings). For the top girls team, games
will be in the Chelsea Piers Mite A division (Sunday mornings) and they will also be
registered in the CGHL “CT Girls Hockey League”. Local supplemental games will
also be scheduled outside of league games.
A super big shout out to head coach Jessica Wiener who is responsible for starting
the girls mite program this year, and we expect to be a fixture in GSC girls hockey
for years to come! Also, thanks to assistant coaches Erik Gutman, Daryl Jones and
Harry Schwefel for their time supporting the girls’ program. Finally, a huge
