Youth Girls Hockey Team Breaks Ground in Western Mass
WESTFIELD, Mass. (WGGB)– As most winter sports begin to wind down, one local team is just getting started.
For the first time in Western Mass. youth girls will have a league all of their own. The Western Mass Blizzard is a u-14 girls team that allows young female athletes to prepare for high school hockey, without playing on an all-boys league.
While all-girls youth teams are popular in the eastern half of the state as well as Connecticut, this is a groundbreaking experience for members of the Blizzard. It’s something even these middle school girls realize is special.
ABC40’s Kainani Stevens has more.
