CWS featured in the "Los Angeles Times" Copyright © John Glionna, Los Angeles Times

From a local spotlight to national recognition - we are getting famous! Shortly after the Pioneer Press article came out, we got featured in the LA Times. John M. Glionna of the Los Angeles Times paid a visit to one of our CWS Novice/Advanced Hockey Leagues, held at Braemar Ice Arena (Edina) on Monday mornings. This wonderful article speaks for itself.

Excerpt from the article:

"...From the bench, players stormed the ice in waves, some opening the small wooden door to the rink and others climbing the rail like the men do, blond pigtails poking out from under their helmets. Plays developed almost in slow motion. There were whiffs. A few fell without prompting, but spirits stayed high.

Suddenly, Curti blew his whistle for a tripping penalty as a player sprawled to the ice. Then something happened that makes the women's sport unique..."

In Their Own Words

I grew up in Saudi Arabia, didn't have hockey let alone ice skating...watched my son play for several years here in Minnesota before I finally decided to try a clinic with some friends 4yrs ago. I was hooked from day #1 and consider it the best decision I ever made!! I am doing things on skates now that I never thought possible in the beginning. What a great community, filled with wonderful people who share the same passion to learn and better themselves through the best sport on earth!! I live and breathe for the next opportunity to play. Now I can jump in on some outdoor pond hockey with high school kids in the winter and have the time of my life!
