The South Shore Women's Hockey League (SSWHL) consists of over 25 women's ice hockey teams representing the Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire areas.  The league and it's teams are USA Hockey registered, and consist of 4 Senior Divisions - A, B, C, and D, coinciding with the USA Hockey designation for the women's divisions.

This website was created to keep those teams informed about the various aspects of the league, and is hopefully a useful resource for players wishing to get more involved with women's ice hockey, in addition to a tool for the league's participants. 

The Bulletin Board section below will be a posting of all league events, and can be used to inform team administrators of meetings, players of available ice times, teams looking for players and/or coaches, etc.

TEAMS LOOKING FOR PLAYERS/COACHES

COACH NEEDED FOR STORM 1 - Storm 1, a C Division team is looking for a coach. Most our games will be in Canton, Milton, and Bedford, with a smattering in Dedham, Marlboro, and Westboro. We hope to have 3-4 practices during the coarse of the year, most likely towards the beginning of the season. If you are interested in coaching us, you can contact storm1@stormwomenshockey.com.

GOALIE/PLAYERS NEEDED FOR STORM 1 - Storm 1, a C Division Team, is looking for players, including a GOALIE for the upcoming season. Most our games will be in Canton, Milton, and Bedford, with a smattering in Dedham, Marlboro, and Westboro. Tryouts will be held Monday July 24 and 31 at 8:00, Rink 2 at the Nashoba Valley Olympia in Boxboro. Cost of tryouts is $10. If you are interested, you can contact Nancy at storm1@stormwomenshockey.com.

COACH NEEDED FOR THE PUMAS - The Pumas are a C2 team looking for a coach. Just moving to C2 from D this coming season. Most of the team has played together for 3+ years. Our team performs adequately without a bench coach, but much more effectively with a bench coach. We really benefit from the direction and leadership of a coach. Practice ice in the past has been every other week in Brookline beginning in November and running until March. Team commitment to practice is about 60-75% of the team on any given week. Contact Dawn at dawntosca@ymail.com with questions or if interested.


 

WANTED:  USED EQUIPMENT –

 

I am a Physical Therapist working at Spaulding Rehab. We have a sled
hockey program for both patients in our hospital and community members with
disabilities. These players have a wide variety of disabilities including spinal
cord injuries, amputation, brain injuries, stroke along with many more. The program
is run by a few members of Soauldings Adaptive Sports Program along with therapists
and many volunteers. Finding for equipment is limited and most of the funds are
spent on specialized equipment like sleds and sticks. The protective equipment for
sled hockey is the same as stand up hockey and that's where you come in. I am
looking to see if anyone would be willing to donate some of that old hockey
equipment that is sitting around in your basement. Items we need are:
 
Helmets with cages or full shields 
Gloves
Elbow pads
Shin guards 
Shoulder pads 
 
Thanks 
Lisa Perkins (Sting )
If you have anything you'd be willing to donate please contact me at
lisamperkins@gmail.com

LEAGUE PICTURES!

 

I know I haven't updated the Gallery of Pictures page in quite a long time, but I have been taking pictures and posting them on Picasa (www.picasaweb.google.com/ssswhl - that's right, 3s'). I have been meaning to update the Gallery of Pictures Page, and maybe some day I'll actually get around to it. But in the meantime, here is the link ( www.picasaweb.google.com/ssswhl) and go poke around.

Sorry, there are some teams that are better represented than others. It all depended upon when I had the time to hang around, if I remembered to bring my camera, and which rink I was at (Canton is best for pictures, NESC the worse...the mesh all around the rink reeks havoc on the auto focus). Enjoy....

ANYONE NEED TO GET IN SHAPE? LOSE A FEW POUNDS? Let me help motivate you...

Anyone need to get in better shape? Show of hands? Well, I'm one! I've already lost 25+ pounds and eager to lose about 20 more. I know if I'm going to continue playing hockey into my 50's - whoa...not so fast, I'm only 44 - I'd better be kind to my knees.

I'm an Independent Team Beachbody Coach. You've probably seen their infomercials:

Slim in 6, P90X, Ten Minute Trainer, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Abs

You can log your workouts into their "virtual gym" and be eligible to win daily prizes up to $1,000! I made a workout team called "Women Hockey Jocks".

I'm presently doing their newest DVD (not being released until January 3rd) called chaLEAN Extreme.

These are awesome, at-home workouts - very doable - very affordable - no excuses.

Check out my website and/or contact me. THERE'S POWER IN NUMBERS, LADIES!!
