Welcome Brit Volini - Girls Program Director

We are pleased to announce that Brit Volini will be joining St. Jude, as the Girls Program Director.  Brit has a passion to help young women learn and play the game she loves.  Brit grew up in Minnesota and began playing hockey at a young age .  Brit continued playing at the University of Minnesota for their club team while earning a degree in Sports Management.  Brit has been involved in the Illinois hockey scene for over 10 years.  She was the Hockey Director at Homewood-Flossmoor for eight seasons and started the Pirates Girls Hockey Program. Most recently, She ran the Hockey programs at Franklin Park.    We are excited to begin the season under Brits leadership.

St. Jude is committed to providing all players with opportunities to learn to play ice hockey, to develop and enhance their skills, and to reach their full potential both on and off of the ice.  St. Jude offers hockey opportunities for girls at all different levels.  Young girls who are just starting out are encouraged to try out our Learn to Skate Program.  This program is designed for young pre-k, kindergartners, and new-to-skating first through third grade girls who are interested in learning to skate. It is focused on creating a welcoming environment to foster a love for the player’s time spent on the ice. Our goal is for the players to learn the most basic skating skills while having fun.  Already know how to skate?  Then try our Learn to Play ADM Program.  This program is designed for girls 5 years old and up with previous sessions in basic skating.  In this program we will introduce the basic tenets of the American Development Model (ADM) that stresses small area games for increased player development including puck handling and team concepts.  Are you already a player and looking for a team?
