From the Coaches

This was both a great and a tough season in different ways. The team was made up of twenty-six girls! This was great! And tough! Coach Rogers worked to create two smaller groups and have plenty of playing time for each. This was great! And tough to do! We enjoyed the last year with the last two players -Helen Bochneak and Kyla Rogers- who were part of the very first girls’ ice hockey team five years ago (as 8th graders!). This was great! And tough (to say goodbye!)! We hosted our first ever winter classic at the Jungé Pavilion. This was great! And… we saw less ice-time because of unusually warm weather. And this was tough!

Ultimately, though, the girls did get lots of playing time, and they clearly had fun -whether we won or lost. At 5 wins, 2 ties and 12 losses, we all probably would have preferred to win a bit more, but through it all, they built a relationship with each other over the weeks, and found a good way to work together as a team.

We had some pretty fun, crazy and also challenging memories from the season too: driving through a bit of the Brandywine river on the way to the “cow zamboni rink” at Upland Country Day School; learning of the team’s love of clementines on away games!; encountering the most colorfully-dressed coach ever; getting winter classic t-shirts designed by our own Jenny Zheng; choreographing ice dances at the junior-led practice; lining up in the basement of the field house for yoga with David; playing “sockey” (hockey with a soccer ball) to music on fun Fridays; fitting in both team bowling and watching the boys hockey team win their champs; and, most challenging of all, traveling in bad weather and traffic to our final game, only to watch Kyla get injured in the last 23 seconds of her last high school hockey game.

Building relationships, skills and memories (both the great and the tough) such as these, that’s what it’s all about -helping us to grow and build life experience. We had another fantastic year and we are grateful for this opportunity to be with these amazing girls!
