Canton, MA - The Boston Lady Whalers Elite Hockey Club is excited to announce our ID Evaluation Skate, that will take place on Monday November 11th (Veteran's Day) for a fourth consecutive year.

The ID Evaluation Skate was established for both players that have been in our program, and players that are interested in joining our program, to be seen by our staff as we make our selections for the 2020 Spring/Summer tournament season.  

The skate is open to any interested players between the 2005 - 2011 birth years, and each session will be broken up by age group.  BLW Coach and U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist, Megan Keller, will be the Lead Instructor on the ice, and will be assisted by former Boston Pride goaltender Brittany Ott, amongst others.  BLW General Manager Dana Trivigno will be joined by BLW Coach and U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Haley Skarupa, in assessing the evaluation from above the glass.

The Boston Lady Whalers Elite Hockey Club has been the area's winningest and most prestigious spring/summer hockey program for the past 5 seasons.  Our teams participate ONLY in the top events, and are comprised of some of the strongest players spanning across New England, and from as far away as Toronto, North Carolina, and more.  While we do take pride in the 42 tournament championships that we have won over the past 5 seasons, our goal is to strengthen our schedule each year and play against the best teams from all different regions of North America and challenge our players.

Each of our teams are coached entirely by a staff of accomplished women hockey players that have attained success at the highest levels - U.S. Olympic Gold Medalists, Professional Women's League players, NCAA Division I players, and more.  We feel that girls need to be coached differently than boys, and instead of having another Dad behind the bench, have staffed each team to be coached by these women who have recently attained success at the highest levels of the game, and can serve as role models and resources as our players navigate the ladders up the hockey chain.

The Boston Lady Whalers 2020 ID Evaluation Skate will take place at the Canton Sportsplex (5 Carver Circle) in Canton, MA, on November 11, 2019, and the sessions will be broken up as follows:

Group 1 -  10:00 AM

Group 2 - 11:00 AM

Group 3 - 12:00 PM

Group 4 - 1:00 PM

* We will be emailing each player with a confirmation for which group they will be placed in.  Please expect an email no later than 11/10/19.

The cost to participate in the Boston Lady Whalers 2020 ID Evaluation Skate is $40.00 per player for those who register ahead of time, and $50.00 for those who email after the close of registration, and are confirmed and assigned a session time.
