Hartford Junior Lady Wolfpack Program Gains Huge Momentum heading into Tryout Season.

The HJRLWP Program was created with the goal of improving the hockey lives of female student athletes.   Our program is deeply committed to helping players learn and improve individually and collectively as student athletes.   A distinct advantage of the HJRLWP starts with former NHL stand-out Bob Crawford who owns our facilities and is passionate about the program.  Our training facility in Cromwell offers one NHL and one Olympic sized ice sheet, a 33,000 square foot fitness center at The New England Athletic Club, team specific training space for off ice sessions, a synthetic training facility, classroom and video rooms, and a committed and excellent coaching staff. 

In our first year, the HJRLWP established our identity as a destination for female hockey players to develop their individual and team skills, learn the game, have fun, and compete in a variety of the most prestigious hockey leagues.  The HJRLWP prides itself on being able to offer our younger players (U10 – U16) and older players (U14-U19) the opportunity to prepare and play at the next level, be it high school, prepatory school, or college. 

In our first year, the HJRLWP (U12, U14, U19 High School, and U19 Juniors) not only achieved a significant number of on ice successes, but the overall improvement and development of all our student/athletes was our greatest victory.
