The Wenatchee Wild organization is looking at starting an Under 19 Girls program for the 2016-2017 season. The girls would be housed with local families from September through March the same as the Wenatchee Wild and the Wenatchee Wolves U 18 development team. The program would be structured very similar to the Wenatchee Wolves development program. The girls would practice a minimum of four times per week. They would have strength training done by a strength coach at least two times per week. This along with study table in the evenings. The players would all have team rules with a curfew to follow. As an organization we are in the first step of this process. We need to find out if there would be potential for housing twenty girls in the Wenatchee valley. If you are interested or know someone that might be interested in housing a girl could you please pass on my email address so we can make contact? The families will be paid monthly for housing a player. The Wild organization is very excited about this project. We feel if we can get the housing for the girls we will hire a coaching staff that will be able to recruit a girls program that we all can be proud of. This would give the local girls that have aspirations of playing college hockey a place to play without having to move. Anyone interested please email me at blittler@wenatcheewildhockey.com or call me at the Wild office at 509-888-7825.
