GRLS - Girls Remote Learning Support
NOTICE: Due to current COVID-19 state guidelines, the GRLS program is on hold, but hopes to resume operation in January. Space is still available - please contact us for more information on enrollment for when we resume!
Players may register anytime during the academic year as space is available!
Girls 4 Hockey is dedicated to supporting female players in their growth and development both on and off the ice. Since the announcement of the new hybrid/remote learning model for the 2020-2021 academic year, G4H has been researching how we can best support players and their families during this challenging time. It is with great excitement that we announce a new program - GRLS (Girls Remote Learning Support) - dedicated to helping G4H players both on the ice and in the virtual classroom.
The GRLS program will provide daily structured learning support as players navigate their remote learning course load and will include a built in hour of ice time, where players will receive individualized, skills-based instruction. On-ice sessions will be coached by an all-female coaching staff who will also be providing remote learning support. The lead coaches for this program have experience working in a wide variety of educational settings from general education, to school counseling and alternative education, and are very excited to bring their expertise to G4H for this very unique opportunity. Check out our video below to see the GRLS program in action!
Our GRLS program will have a target age of 6 - 12, though we may consider players outside of this window on a case by case basis. Players can be beginners, but they must have at least some skating experience and have access to full equipment (though G4H can assist with this as needed).
With players now returning to a 4-day per week schedule, our schedule has changed. GRLS will now be running WEDNESDAYS ONLY throughout the 2020- 2021 academic year. As before, learning space for this program provided at the Delta Hotel & Conference Center in South Burlington and on-ice practices taking place at Cairns Arena. Transportation from the hotel to the rink and back will be provided by VT Ride Network. A sample of our schedule is as follows:
8:00am - Drop off - Delta Hotel & Conference Center, South Burlington
8:00am - 9:30am - Remote Learning/Academic Support
9:30am - 9:50am - Movement Break (Stick Handling, Agility, Workout, Game)

To register or learn more, please email or call Meghan at email@example.com or by calling 617-875-5243.
Please note: Due to learning area requirements and rink regulations, space in this program is very limited. As such, players will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis and email does NOT guarantee space in the program. G4H also reserves the right to cancel GRLS should state guidelines change or stay-at-home orders resume. Should this happen, G4H will issue a refund for any days paid for in advance. Players and families also will have the flexibility to change their enrollment should their personal circumstances change throughout the year.
