The safety and well being of each student athlete is the number one concern of New Trier Girls Hockey. In keeping with that philosophy, and because of the increase in recent years of concussions connected to ice hockey, mandatory baseline concussion testing is required for each NTGH player. This test is required to be taken prior to the commencement of a player’s first season with NTGH and every second season thereafter. It is our preference that this test be performed prior to tryouts, but at a minimum it must be completed prior to October 1, 2014. Baseline cognitive testing provides information on a child’s brain function prior to an injury. If an athlete were to receive a concussion, the baseline test can then be compared to a post-injury test. This provides objective data to better assess recovery from a concussion. For the fourth consecutive year the Chicago Blackhawks, NorthShore University HealthSystem, AHAI, and Athletico Physical Therapy have teamed up to offer FREE baseline concussion testing through the "A Step aHead" program.

Coach Carla Pentimone has created a “Summer Training Manual” for New Trier Girls Hockey. The manual was designed not only to prepare everyone for the upcoming season, but also to establish a foundation for development of each player’s continuing strength, fitness, endurance, and general health and wellness. The manual includes 2 body weight circuits, 2 core circuits, and 4 dumbbell complexes, along with a schedule for the summer months. Lastly, it includes on-ice and off-ice testing. Each player is required to supply her own pair of either 5 or 10 pound dumbbells.
At the second of the summer skates held each Tuesday from 7:50-8:50 PM at Centennial Ice Rinks in Wilmette, we completed a baseline test for the on-ice portion. We will be completing the off-ice portion before the Tuesday night skate on July 7th beginning at 7 PM at Wilmette. We will complete the on-ice and off- ice testing again later in the summer for comparison to the baseline test results. Do not worry too much about the testing; this is more for your personal knowledge to see how far you’ve come after all the healthy effort you put in over the summer! A bound copy of the manual was handed out at the second summer skates, and they will be available at the remaining summer skates while supplies last. For those who cannot make the summer skates, you can download a copy of the training manual using the link below.
Please do not hesitate to contact Coach Carla with any questions or concerns.

Congratulations to Grace Hwang, a senior forward for the NTGH Silver Team, on being named a recipient of a 2014 Blackhawk Alumni Association (BHAA) Scholarship. Grace is the eighth New Trier Hockey player, fourth girl’s player, to receive this award.
The BHAA distributes college scholarships annually to the three most deserving high school hockey players in Illinois. Awards are determined from a candidate's level of community service, volunteerism, good citizenship, and academic performance as well as their hockey talent. The scholarship is $5,000 annually, for four years. Congratulations also go out to the other two recipients, Elek Wellman of Sacred Heart/Griffin High School in Springfield and Daniel Lorden of Jones College Prep in Chicago.
It is not hard to see why Grace was chosen for this prestigious award, once you learn a little more about her life outside of hockey. For the past three summers Grace has traveled to Costa Rica, Tanzania, and Bolivia, each for four weeks doing community service. Some of her volunteer work includes rebuilding and landscaping a primary school, building an orphanage, organizing HIV/AIDS awareness workshops for locals, and (Grace’s personal favorite) herding llamas. Domestically, she volunteers at a homeless shelter with her church and she tutors underprivileged children through a New Trier High School club.
Outside of hockey and community service, Grace’s favorite hobby is music. She has played piano since she was four years-old and has been playing the guitar for the past four years. She has used these talents for the past three years to work with autistic children, providing music therapy.
After graduating from New Trier this spring, Grace will be attending Middlebury College in Vermont.
The NTGH family is proud of Grace’s accomplishments in the classroom, in the community and on the ice. Please join us in congratulating her on this amazing and well deserved honor
