Girls Midwest Team

First of all, I want to say Thank You!!!  For making the commitment for doing this and letting me coach your daughters.  What an awesome group of girls and I was so proud of them this weekend.  Wow.......I thought they did an amazing job for the first time being together!!!!!  Can't say that with enough sincerity.  We asked these girls to do a lot this weekend and I thought we got better with each game we played.  Closing out the weekend with a GREAT win was well deserved!

 

Just to give you a little perspective on the weekend......

The two teams we lost to on Saturday both won their games vs teams from Pool B today and played each other for the Championship where Team MN Development won 5-2.

The team we tied on Friday night won their game today

We won our game today which means that pool A (ours) had a clean sweep over teams in pool B.  

 

I was talking to the coach of the opposing team today before our game and he said that teams we played were the best 12U girls teams in MN.  He knew many of the girls on those teams.  They were darn good no doubt!

 

I think we turned some heads when people found out where we were from.  I love it, and that is what we are out to do.  We have a lot of girls in our affiliate (Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas) that can play hockey!

 

I hope everyone had a safe drive and made it home ok.  After a win it makes the ride home a little more enjoyable :)

 

We are in the process of finding some practice times and trying to find a summer boys team to play in Omaha.  I know that everyone has busy schedules and we likely won't find a date that fits for everyone.  I want everyone to know that I'm ok with that.  I encourage these girls to play other summer sports and think that is very important to their development and overall athleticism.  This is not a high-pressure program we are trying to run.  

 

I hope that all had fun because that is what is most important.  

 

I'll be in touch as we get some practice stuff scheduled.  I should have our third tournament date here soon and we are schedule for the International Cup the first weekend in August.  

 

Thanks,

Jade Pospeshil

 

Response from one of the parents:

Grateful for all your work, not only this weekend, but everything you've done in the past couple of years to make this happen. 

 

I know that this is the only chance a lot of the kids have to play with other girls, and I'm thrilled everyone had a chance to spend the weekend at a place where seven sheets of ice were booked, dawn to dusk, with other girls playing hockey.

2018 Girls Jamboree update

Hello,

I first of all want to thank everyone who came out to skate last Saturday!  It was a great event with over 60 girls total from all over the affiliate.  Simply Awesome!!!

I hope all of your daughters had fun and made some new friends!  This was the #1 goal for Saturday

I wish that every girl could be placed on a team but unfortunately there are a limited number of spots.  These are always tough decisions and I want to thank our evaluators who took time out of their day to evaluate participants.  

The plan is to continue MWAHA Girls teams each year and adding a 14U and eventually 16U.  I plan on holding the jamboree/team selection early in the fall instead of spring for next year.  (easier for planning purposes)

Thanks again!

2017 – 2018 Girls Update

2017 – 2018 Girls Update

The hockey season is getting underway and I wanted to give everyone an update on plans for this upcoming 2017-2018 season. 

As many of you know, we held a girls Jamboree in Des Moines the first weekend in October for 8U and 10U players last year.  We also used that session as a tryout to form our first ever All Girls Midwest Select Team.  The team attended 1 tournament (I wish they could have done at least 1 more if not 2) in Duluth back in April and won a hard fought championship game against a very good Minnesota team. 

Due to limited ice availability and scheduling conflicts we are moving our Midwest Girls Hockey day to the end of March.  I’ll send out an update as soon as I have that date and time set.  It will be held in Des Moines again this year and will be for 10U and 12U ages. 

I would like to once again form a Girls Midwest Selects team at the 10U and 12U age and attend a few AAA tournaments.  Those tournaments would be in April/May/ and either end of July/early August time frame.  More details to come on which tournaments and specific dates.  We will treat this Midwest Girls Hockey day as a tryout for these two teams.  I will have independent evaluators there like we had last year to make team selections. 

I’ll be sure to send out an update as soon as we have dates and times pinned down. 

 

Thanks and everyone have a great start to another hockey season!!
