Registration is open now for Little Wings, a great learn-to-play program for 5-8 year-olds who already know how to skate. LCFHHA is once again a host association.
Cammi Granato and FlipGive have teamed up to donate $500 grants to 50+ girls between the ages of 4-18.
Players will be selected by a grant committee, including Cammi Granato. Multiple children from one family can enter, but an individual form will need to be completed for each child. There is no cost to apply.
Recipients of the Cammi Granato Girls Hockey Grant presented by FlipGive will receive:
1. A $500 Player Grant issued as a credit on FlipGive, which can be used at any time to help with the cost of hockey fees, such as registrations.
2. By submitting your application, you’ll enter your club or association for a chance to win one of 42 equipment sets, an approximate $300 value, generously provided by Pure Hockey and Bauer, to help another player get geared up this season.
Submissions must be turned in by November 6, 2021.

About Cammi Granato:
Catherine "Cammi" Granato (born March 25, 1971) is an American former ice hockey player and one of the first women to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in November 2010.
She currently works as an NHL scout for the Seattle Kraken organization. Granato was the captain of the U.S. women's hockey team that won a gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics. She is the younger sister of former NHL player Tony Granato and Buffalo Sabres head coach Don Granato, and a graduate of Providence College. Granato played hockey for Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Granato has been a recipient of the Lester Patrick Award (2007), and she has been inducted into the International Hockey Hall of Fame (2008), the US Hockey Hall of Fame (2009) and the Hockey Hall of Fame (2010).
Granato played in every world championship for the United States from the inaugural event in 1990 to 2005. She was named USA Women's Player of the Year in 1996. Granato was the captain of the U.S. women's hockey team that won a gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics. On February 8, 1998, she scored the first ever Olympic goal for the U.S women's hockey team. In 205 career games for the national team, Granato had 186 goals, 157 assists, and 343 points. She is the team's all-time leading scorer.
Granato was cut from the US National team unexpectedly before the 2006 Olympics in Turin, Italy bringing controversy to the decision after being a part of the program since its inaugural season and all-time leading point scorer. The US team subsequently lost its Olympic semifinal match to Sweden, its first-ever international loss to a team other than Canada, and brought home the bronze medal.
In June 1997, New York Islanders general manager Mike Milbury extended an invitation to Granato to attend Islanders training camp. Granato eventually declined.
Granato is also a rinkside reporter for NBC's NHL coverage, and served as a color commentator for NBC's coverage of women's ice hockey at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. In 1998, Granato served as the color commentator for Los Angeles Kings radio broadcasts.
In 2019, she was hired by the Seattle Kraken as only the second ever female scout for a National Hockey League club.
She currently hosts the On the Bus With Cammi & AJ podcast with former teammate A. J. Mleczko.
