Hello families of Waukesha Wolves, AYHA, Shaw, and Waukesha Warhawks!

Girls hockey is growing at an extremely fast rate across the country. It’s an exciting time to be
part of girls hockey and even more exciting as our associations are all growing in female
numbers. Growth will always force evaluation and change and it’s our job to ensure this is
positive change. We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you some of the exciting
developments in our girls’ hockey programs for the 2019-20 season.

The Waukesha Wolves will continue to provide teams at the 10U, 12U, and 14U levels. Teams
at 10U and 12U will be a co-op between Waukesha, AYHA, and SHAW. At the 14U level
Elmbrook will also continue to participate in the co-op this season.

We learned a lot in the first year of the WAHA dual roster pilot program and want to ensure this
second year will be a great year for our girls programs. We will do that through the following:
● Consolidated Scheduling - The AYHA scheduler will be coordinating the practice and
game schedules for the girls teams. The goal is to minimize conflicts for those girls that
still wish to participate in their co-ed teams.
● Off Ice Conditioning - Off ice training is an excellent way to improve physical
conditioning, stick handling, and shooting while optimizing ice time. The girls teams will
have dry land training sessions as part of their regular training schedule.
● Team Building - An important part of girls team hockey is the ability to form
relationships, strengthen leadership skills, and develop a hockey community to carry
them through as long as they chose to participate in the sport. There will be team
building opportunities for the girls teams in order to promote these relationships starting
before the beginning of the season.
● Summer Ice - We will start girls team practices over the summer to facilitate skills
development and strengthen the team dynamics.
There are still many details that our organizations are working out as registration is being
finalized; we are working together diligently to create a strong, organized girls’ program. We
wanted to let you know that we are highly invested in growing girls hockey and together we feel
that we can have very competitive teams, growing the girls through skills development and off
ice events.

Please feel free to contact any of us with questions or feedback! Look for additional details in
the near future as well as an invitation to attend a parent meeting.
