If any of you ladies out there are having second thoughts about trying hockey, read this great article. You might  just change your mind!

"You recall the speed, the power and the soul-stirring gracefulness of the Olympic hockey games in Sochi? This isn't it.

In Their Own Words

Such an amazing place to learn to love this sport! I started with the beginner clinic at age 19 and loved it! Have played 2 years on CWS teams since. Great way to meet great women, learn a new game, and work off the frustrations of daily life. Love being able to say I play Minnesota's best sport!
