Missing hockey because of the NHL lockout? Look no further for your hockey fix than Rec Services’ newest club: the Women’s Titans hockey team!
The team began last year, but struggled to recruit enough players and played many games shorthanded. This year they’re back and ready to make their mark in the South Coast Female Hockey league. With a full roster, padded by players from the community, the girls are putting in two practices a week to hone their skills and become a stronger team. Team captain, Shannon Butler, explained it’ll be another growing year for the team but she’s excited about the full roster and seeing the girls grow in their hockey skills.
Trinity Western University is offering a unique opportunity in its women’s club hockey team. Besides Simon Fraser University, no other universities in TWU’s size bracket in the Lower Mainland can boast that. The girls play weekends from September to March.
The team is always looking for more recruits, so if there are female hockey players out there, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
