The Baltimore Stars welcomes you!
The Baltimore Stars Girls Program was established early in 2005 and has a long history of excellence in girls’ ice hockey. We are a place for girls to experience, learn and grow in the sport of ice hockey. Our primary goal is to have as many girls as possible to try and participate in the wonderful lifelong sport of ice hockey. Secondary to this, many of our hockey alumni have gone on to distinguished travel and college careers.
I invite you to come out and talk to our staff, coaches and players about girls’ ice hockey. It is a sport like no other.
