The first Girls’ Junior Program in Raleigh will be available this upcoming 2020/2021 season.

With the tremendous growth of girls hockey in the Carolina's and the Southeast, the Carolina Jr. Hurricanes are committed to providing an elite junior development program that allows girls to develop on and off the ice while staying in the region and still pursue their dreams. The program will help propel athletes to reach their goals --collegiately and beyond -- by putting them in a competitive, growth-minded and team-focused environment with access to high-level coaching, increased ice time, and a supportive academic environment. 

The start of the Carolina Jr. Hurricanes Girls Junior Development Program will positively change the landscape for thousands of female hockey players in the Southeast and support the long-term growth of girls hockey in the region.

Tryouts will be May 9th
