This is a great opportunity for your daughter to meet our current players/coaches and to see what it's like to play on an all-girls team. We will also be available to answer any questions you may have. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Girls 10U Head Coach Announcement

We are glad to announce that Billy Pugliese has been chosen to be the head coach of the Girls 10U Team for the 2018-19 season.  Billy comes with a lot of hockey background and will be in his 3rd of coaching in the Girls Program.  We are excited to welcome him back.

Thank you,

Girls 16U Roster Announcement

We would like to thank all of the players who attended the G16U tryouts as well as thank the coaches and parents for volunteering their time to help with the grading and preparation.  We had 28 girls attend the tryouts, which is very exciting for the program in its first year - this is a testament to the growth of the girls hockey program in Omaha.   

The players were very close in skill and ability, which meant the evaluators had a difficult job choosing the team.

The goal of the G16U team is to provide an opportunity for the players to develop high level skills in a competitive environment and progress to the next level.  Thank you for your commitment to the girls’ hockey program in Omaha.

Here is the list of girls that have made the G16U Roster. Congratulations to:

Girls 2018-19 Season Planning & Format

Hi there, hope everyone is doing well as the end of the school year approaches.   Planning for the 2018-19 OHC Girls Hockey season has been under way.  It is always a bit challenging due to the uncertainty of our numbers until registration is complete.  In addition to setting our team formats & tournament schedules, we need to keep our plans flexible enough to adjust to the moving target that is registration numbers.

Most importantly where this is concerned, we must make contingencies at two age levels based on whether or not we will be accepted full-time into the South Dakota league. I will be attending their May 12th meeting where the final vote will be taken on application for full-time inclusion. (The decision could be tabled until June, but I will let everyone concerned know the results of that vote ASAP)

In the meantime we are planning for next season, and I have listed the expected format below.

It is common in hockey to have tryouts for teams.  In the past we have had tryouts for 1 team, placing the rest of the players on teams according to age and roster need for the program.  As our numbers grow we have been looking for the best solution for all girls involved in our program.  We will still be holding tryouts for our G19U-A team, and starting with the 2018-19 season we will be holding tryouts for an additional team at the 16U age level.  All remaining girls will be placed on rosters based on age and need of the program similar to years past.

Here is a brief summary of what we are expecting as teams for the upcoming 2018-19 season.  There is no guarantee that this will be the exact structure, as we do not know how many girls will be actually registering for our program.  While this is our estimation of how things will look, it will change and is in no way a guarantee:

 

G19U – A

Head Coach:       Jim Murcek

Tryout Information:  Open to birth years 2005 thru 1999

May 17, 2018  @ 8:45 pm at Moylan Iceplex

May 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am at Moylan Iceplex

This will be a developmental & competitive Girls Tier II national bound team with a schedule very similar to the past 3 years.  Approximately 7 – 8 tournaments in cities such as:  Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Madison and others.   They will likely compete in the District Tournament in an effort to qualify for the USA Hockey National Tournament.  They will practice 2 times during the week. We anticipate 40 – 50 games.  This is not a set structure just an example.  It will be up to the head coach to determine what kind of season will be most appropriate for the team.

 

G16U

Head Coach:       Mike Morrison

Tryout Information:  Open to birth years 2005 thru 2002

June 6, 2018  @ 6:15 pm at Moylan Iceplex

June 9, 2018 @ 4:00 pm at Moylan Iceplex

Modeled after the G19U-A this will be a developmental & competitive Girls Tier II team with the goal to build into a national bound team over the next few years.  The season will be an open tournament format to include approximately 6 – 8 road tournaments at the G14U USA, G16U USA, G15U MN, SDAHA V & SDAHA JV levels.  Locations may include:  Chicago, Denver, South Dakota, Madison, Minneapolis/St. Paul, St Louis & Detroit.  Our goal will be to augment the season with friendship games against similar talent from the same list of cities.  We are not limiting our search to these areas. It will be up to the head coach to determine what kind of season will be most appropriate for the team.  We anticipate the team will play 35 – 45 games and practice two nights during the week.

 

G19U-B

Head Coach:       TBD

Evaluation Skate is anticipated for Early August 2018 (no-tryout team)

The focus of the team will be recreational & competitive.  Our plan is to offer a full schedule of practices and games with a less intense season.  If approved by the SDAHA Board during the August 2018 meeting, we will enter this team in the SDAHA Girls JV division.  This would include approximately 10 - 18 regular season games and a state tournament.  The season could be enhanced by 1 - 2 tournaments and some friendship games.

If not accepted into the SDAHA league, this team will follow an “open tournament” schedule.  We are going to plan an open tournament season too, just in case the SDAHA Board does not approve our playdown request at the August 2018 board meeting.  In that situation we anticipate 2 – 3 tournaments and multiple friendship games to include possible locations such as Denver, Chicago, Eastern Iowa, Kansas City, St Louis, SDAHA GJV and the Twin Cities. 

This team will practice 2 times per week and we anticipate approximately 20 - 30 games.  The season will likely begin in September/October and end in February. 

 

G14U

Head Coach:       Todd Lacina

Evaluation Skate is anticipated for late July or early August 2018 (no-tryout team)

The focus of this team will be developmental and competitive.  If approved by the SDAHA board during the May 12, 2018 meeting, we will enter this team the SDAHA Girls 14U division.  This includes 10 – 15 regular season games and the possibility of a state tournament.  The schedule could be enhanced with 1 – 2 additional tournaments and additional friendship games as determined by the head coach.

If not accepted into the SDAHA league, this team will follow an “open tournament” schedule.  They will attend approximately 4 – 6 tournaments and augment the season with additional friendship games. Most tournaments/games would be on the road. Even if we are not accepted into the SDAHA League, we anticipate the opportunity to possibly play non-league games against those teams in cities such as: Sioux Falls, Watertown, Aberdeen, Brookings.  Possible “Open Tournament” locations could include: Chicago, Denver, South Dakota, Madison, St Louis, among others.

This team will likely play 20 – 30 games and practice 2 times per week. 

 

 

G12U

Head Coach:       Andy Ketterson

Evaluation Skate is anticipated for late July or early August 2018 (no-tryout team)

The focus of this team will be developmental and competitive.  It will be run similar to the past few years. This has included 4 – 6 tournaments (mostly in southern MN) and a home tournament.  The season has been augmented with friendship games against other girls teams as well as OHC boys teams.  It will be up to the head coach to determine what kind of season will be most appropriate for the team.  They will likely play 20 – 30 games and practice 2 times per week.

 

G10U

Head Coach:       TBD

Evaluation Skate is anticipated for early August 2018 (no-tryout team)

The focus of this team will be developmental and competitive.  It will be run similar to the past few years. This has included 3 – 5 tournaments (mostly in southern MN) and a home tournament.  The season has been augmented with friendship games against other girls teams as well as OHC boys teams.  It will be up to the head coach to determine what kind of season will be most appropriate for the team.  They will likely play 20 – 25 games and practice 2 times per week.
