10U/8U – Development Team
 
This team would be comprised of any female player age 10 and under (birth years 2008-2011).  Our expectation is that time commitment be low maintenance and development be primarily focused on getting young girls exposed to playing All-Girls Hockey.  

This team will practice 1-2 days per month, to minimize weekly travel time.  We expect all of these girls to supplement their practice time by participating in their local house-league organizations.  

Games will be played in Central Illinois Hockey League (CIHL) at the Mite Full-Ice level, and typically there are around 10 total games.  There are plans to also have the team participate in a Tournament the weekend of November 30th-Dec 2nd in Wisconsin Dells, as well as our home tournament March 8th -10th.

This team will be a combination of birth years 2006-2009.  The team will primarily be comprised of birth years 2006 and 2007 and will be supplemented with younger ages to ensure there are enough players to create a competitive team.  

This team will practice two nights a week, on average, and will play half the games at home (Bloomington/Pekin/Peoria) and play half their games in the Chicagoland area.  This team will participate in several tournaments including but not limited to Nov 30th-Dec 2nd in Wisconsin Dells, February 8th-10th tournament in Notre Dame and our Home Tournament March 8th-10th.  They will play approximately 30-40 games depending on NIHL season count and tournaments.
 
14U/12U Select – NIHL Travel Team
 
This team will primarily be made up of the 2004-2005 birth years.  We will choose to supplement the team with additional 2006 age players, if we need to bolster the numbers to ensure a competitive team.  

This team will practice two nights a week, on average, and will play half the games at home (Bloomington/Pekin/Peoria) and half their games in the Chicagoland area.  This team will participate in several tournaments including but not limited to Nov 30th-Dec 2nd in Wisconsin Dells, February 8th-10th tournament in Notre Dame and our Home Tournament March 8th-10th.  They will play approximately 30-40 games depending on NIHL season count and tournaments.
