Please note this HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR 1/2/19. We will have our normal practice time this week.
For the scrimmage on 1/2/19, if you are on white but have a orange jersey please try to find a player on orange that has a white jersey to trade for the hour of ice. If you have a green jersey that is aok and you can wear that on either team.

Please make sure you are using sportengine app to RSVP. If you cannot RSVP it is probably because your spouse has your childs profile linked to their account. The easiest fix is to just log onto the app on your phone with your spouses account.
I haven't seen anyone post that they couldn't make the jamborees so I have split them up as best as I can. Please let me know if you can't make one of the events your child is listed for and I can see about a swap.
I haven't heard of any volunteers for goalie and all the kids I have asked so far (about 5) told me that their "parents told them they couldn't". While I understand the hesitation, at this age everyone should take their turn in the nets and I would really encourage you to encourage your child to play all positions including goalie. This is a time of exploration for them of their athletic abilities and even if they don't end up playing goalie in future years it will give them an appreciation for the position when they are in 10U/12U.
If that is not enough, a friendly reminder....there is only one player in MN right now that won a GOLD medal and also has a 4 year athletic scholarship to a great university (if I do say so myself). I'm glad her parents were all in when she thought being goalie was fun as a little bomber.
Please see word attachment above for roster splits for jamborees.
All kids should be on EITHER the brainerd or the hibbing list, if I forgot anyone please let me know. Also during our home Jamboree on Feb 24th all 46 kids will play and will be split into two 8u teams and two 6u teams.
Also this week (12-10 to 12-17) we will have scrimmages against the boys intermediates on Weds, a controlled scrimmage against 10u on Friday and a scrimmage against Hibbing on Saturday. I will post rosters for all of these events later today or tomorrow.

While staying overnight is not on official "team" event I did call the Edgewater Hotel and waterpark in Duluth and get a room block to save those of you who do plan on staying overnight some money and hassle. Block is good for nights of Feb 8 and/or 9th.
Call 218 728-3601 to make reservations. The Group name is "GRG Lightning 8U" and the group code is 13139.
Also today only if you get a $100 gift care at the hotel they give you another $50 one for free. Here is the link on that one.
This is who has signed up so far via Sports Engine for this Event. We have two very full teams. I am scheduling games against hibbing at home so if you didnt sign up yet and can instead make the home game on Dec 15th that would be great.

My name is Jeremy Carlson and I will be helping to coordinate and coach the 8u/6u girls this season. We will have 10-12 talented coaches who will all work together to make sure we have enough people at each practice to give us the flexibility to work in small groups. If you are interested in coaching there is always room for more! Please send me an email at jeremy.carlson2625@gmail with any questions.
A huge thanks to Todd Yost and Bruin Construction as well as Beth Hyduke and American Bank for sponsoring our team!
Our first practice is Sunday Oct 21st at 10:40 am.
We will have a parents meeting within a week or two of the season starting, once we have coaches finalized.
We have a great group of 46 girls this year! Thanks for encouraging your girls to play hockey! We still have room for more though, if they have any friends that are still thinking about playing encourage them to sign up, there is no late fee for 8u/6u hockey.
In general we will practice on Wednesdays, usually alternating between the 440, 520, 600 time slots. We will also practice once per weekend. This is all based on ice availability however, so until we get two rinks up and running it is difficult to get a set schedule. Our oldest girls will also have the opportunity to skate on Mondays on the outdoor pavilion once that rink is frozen. All practices and events are optional and our goal is first and foremost fun, as we help them to advance their skills.
We will have scrimmages against the boys intermediates on Wednesdays about once per month and will also play the Hibbing girls a few times. We will have a couple of one day jamborees, these are not finalized yet but in years past we have done a combination of Hibbing, Brainerd and Duluth. Towards the end of the season we will have a home jamboree and invite 4-5 teams to come play us.
