The family friendly event includes a fun 80’s theme with neon lights and 80’s tunes on the ice!

“The girls program is about providing access to hockey and elevating the game for women and girls of all ages. The experiences these girls have in sports creates a larger message of collaboration, confidence and empowerment they will use throughout their lives. It is our goal to bring the game of hockey to all girls in the community!” said Emily Wilson, VP TC North Stars Girls Hockey
“Traverse City, once known as “Hockey Town North,” is not surprisingly leading in growing the sport of girls hockey in the state of Michigan. When my oldest daughter first joined seven years ago, there were two North Stars girls teams…now there are six. It’s an absolute blast to see more and more of Traverse City girls lacing ‘em up, and competing each season. – Jim Feeley, Coach, 10U North Stars Girls.
