Many of you have heard that RMU Island Sports Center is discontinuing the Island Storm Women's Learn to Play Hockey Program. No reason was given for this. When we posted about this on our Facebook page, we had a lot of comments asking why and/or how this could happen when the program is always full. Out of this response a friend created a Save Island Storm Facebook page and Valley Hockey has expressed interest in starting their own women's only skills and scrimmage program based on the overwhelming comments on our Facebook page thread. Here is the email Valley Hockey has sent to us and others:
Valley Hockey is looking at a WOMENS ONLY skills and scrimmage class for 6 weeks starting in June, we are seeking out interest in the Valley Hockey Community. WHO IS INTERESTED? please respond to this email so we can get a head count. the cost for the 6 sessions would be determined by how commitments we get.
Be sure to email Valley Hockey if you are interested in their program. Hopefully they will be able to continue the women's only learn to play hockey program!
