XIC Hockey will provide a 14U/16U Lady Rush Travel Team experience during the 2019-20 season. This program is intended to provide 14U and 16U girl players an opportunity to participate on an all-girl team.
Our goal is to provide the travel team experience for the 2019-20 season and then build on the energy to grow our Girls program for the 2020-21 season.
