2018/2019 Tri Valley Lady Blue Devils Registration

Welcome

Welcome to the Lady Blue Devils Registration!

Since the inaugural season in 2013, the Lady Blue Devils (LBD) program has grown remarkably and will continue to do so this year.  This year we are taking big step and entering our first LBD travel teams into Norcal at 10U and 12U divisions.  We are also entering our first JV team in the SJ JV league. The LBD Mite X team will part of the TVMHA Mite X program. The LBD House program will have two teams divided by skill and age for new and developing players.

You can expect more games, more competition, and access to additional coaching resources.  We will be focusing on skill, team, and interpersonal development as LBD continues to evolve.   
 
Our mission is to provide welcoming, educational, and competitive environment while removing barriers that would keep young ladies away from this wonderful team sport. If you think you have a barrier, we will try to help you remove it, including if you need loaner gear or just want to give hockey a try before making longer commitments.
 
We are very excited about the 2018-2019 season and are looking forward to seeing returning and new smiling faces at the rink.
