Welcome to Julia Dessart's Tigers U19AA Girls Rally.
Julia's U19AA hockey team is a team of girls age 14-19 who compete out of Colorado Springs, CO and are all from the Colorado Springs area - we do not recruit players from other areas of the state or country to play for us. We are a home grown team!
Last season, in only their first year as a AA team, the girls were CO State Champions and Rocky Mountain District Champions, which earned them a berth at USA Hockey Nationals.
Our goal for the 2017-18 season is once again to travel back to Nationals. Our fund raising is critical to this team as we are required to play a certain number of games to qualify for Nationals, and because there are not enough teams in the State to meet this game requirement, we must travel outside of CO.
We are raising funds to cover a portion of Juila's and her teams travel costs.
As players get to the older age groups, this is typically where the funds are harder for the players to come up with. As hockey is not an inexpensive sport, your help is greatly needed to ensure the girls are able to keep moving forward.
Playing U19 hockey also provides these young ladies the opportuninty to possibly play at the collegiate level. Last season our team played Colorado State Univ and Denver Univ and were also recruited by Arizona State Univ, Grand Canyon Univ, and Midland Univ. With your help, this season our girls will also play and hopefully be recruited by Colorado State Univ, in addition to the schools from last season.
Thank you to everyone who helps and supports our girls. Please help Spread the Word!
