On Saturday, October 5, 2019, the Kemptville Storm celebrated its fifth annual Storm Day in celebration of World Girls’ Hockey Weekend, an initiative of the International Ice Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada.
Kemptville Storm has 13 teams and 185 registered female players, ranging from Initiation Program (age 4 and up) to Midget (up to age 18), at both house and competitive levels.
Again this year, the Storm hosted 13 visiting teams across all age groups for a series of games on both ice pads. With a digital photo booth–made possible in part by a vaping awareness grant by Health Canada, raffle tables, 50/50 tickets, vendors, and ice cream sundaes in support of the Adam Harlow Fellowship Fund, the rink was certainly the place to be on Storm Day! Thank you to our Storm families and all the visiting teams for helping us showcase female hockey in North Grenville.
