A basement, garage or other open area at home loaded with a net, backstop, stick handling balls, heavy weight pucks, 100-200 regular pucks, stick handling balls and good music!

Relatively cheap, fun and beats video games all day long! :D

You said balls twice!

Teams that are not in the top 16 in the rankings have a chance to make the tourny by winning their section. Pretty sure this system works well in college...

1 tourney. 1 class, 16 teams. Section tourneys would be awesome. So many great arenas around the state that would be rocking for a chance to get to the STATE TOURNEY. Bigs, Smalls, and Privates would come together to make the greatest tourney better year after year.

No doubt the speed n skill of the boys will help a young girl improve. I would guess all the Olympic (Canadian n USA) girls played on boys teams growing up.
