Girls hockey growing in North Grenville


submitted by Kathy Dickenson

The Kemptville Storm hit the ice for conditioning camp on Monday, August 22, kicking off the 2022-23 hockey season. This year, the Storm has grown to a total of 17 teams, an increase of 3 teams over last year and the largest cohort in memory with nearly 230 players.

There is still time to register for the season. You can reach out to Kathy, the Storm Registrar at [email protected].

Kemptville Storm needs goalies in almost every division, including U11, U13 & U15 teams. Discounts are available to all Storm Goalies. Lots of ice time is possible where there’s a good chance you could be the only goalie on your team. Kemptville Minor Hockey has a dedicated Goalie Mentor who is setting up regular sessions throughout the season specifically for goaltender instruction. Additional external training is also possible. Goalie equipment supplied up to U13 and possibly older as well.

We are also looking forward to celebrating our 8th annual Storm Day on Saturday, October 8, in celebration of World Girls Hockey Weekend, an initiative of the International Ice Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada.

Again this year, the Storm will host visiting teams and our own 17 Storm teams from U7 to U18 for games at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. With raffle tables, 50/50 tickets, chuck-a-puck, game announcers and music, the rink will certainly be the place to be on Storm Day!

If you’ve got big ideas for Storm Day and would like to help, we want to hear from you! Please contact Trish at [email protected]

And as always, thank you to all our Storm families for including Storm Day in your annual Thanksgiving weekend plans. Go Storm!
