8U and 10U Girls' Jamborees Held Dec 4 and 5, 2021

On December 4 and 5, the PVAHA hosted 6 girls' Jamborees. We held 8U and 10U sessions at 3 locations: Rockville Ice Arena, SkateQuest Reston and Tucker Road Ice Rink. 173 girls had a great time playing small ice games. For many of these girls, this was their first girls only hockey experience. We had guest appearances by the Capitals’ Slapshot and the Maryland Black Bears' mascot Bruno.

As evidenced by the photos and videos, it appears that a good time was had by all.
