The Blueliners, Nelson and area’s intermediate division recreational women’s hockey team, are skating into their 18th season.

The Nelson squad is coming off of a very successful 2011-12 season and is looking for an even better season this year.

The squad anticipates heading down to Spokane to defend their Hoctoberfest crown in mid-October and to take back the Nelson Icebreaker crown from the Vernon Vipers later in the season.

The Blueliners actively seek out tourneys in BC, Alberta and the States — and have a lot of fun playing hockey.  They are beginning weekly practices this October on Sundays from 6:30 to 7:45 in the complex. The squad is looking for new players. Interested in playing? Contact Loreli at 250-359-2996 or email l.dawson@shaw.ca.
