This year’s 2019/20 season marks the first time WLMHA will ice a team in each of the three above divisions, as interest at the rep level is particularly high this season for the age group.

The teams will now settle into their regular season schedules with their home tournaments slated for Nov. 15-17 (Peewee Tier 2/3) and Nov. 22-24 (Peewee Female).
