A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

This One's For the Girls

Here's something for us ladies to love: The Islanders have turned their focus onto women's hockey by creating the LIL Islanders (Long Island Lady Islanders). It includes Tier 1 and 2 teams for each age group, and an Introduction to Girls Hockey program for novice players.

What I love about this is that women's hockey is being given a great platform. Girls and women can use this as an opportunity to show that they can play the game, too, and more girls can be introduced to this awesome sport. If I had been just a little bit younger when I had first noticed hockey, I would definitely have joined a team or taken lessons at the least, because I would have loved to be involved with the sport firsthand, and not just watched the boys play it from afar.

Thanks to the Isles for finally giving female hockey players an opportunity to stand out!! Long Island loves you!
