ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
The Twin Cities Northern Lights is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Bloomington Minnesota, located in the southwest metro suburbs of Minneapolis - Saint Paul, USA. Our players who are 16-20 years old come from across the country to play in the Minnesota Junior Hockey League with the intention of training in order to hopefully move up to the college hockey ranks. We are motivated to develop everyone within the Northern Lights family and aim to provide learning opportunities for coaching staff and management interns who will hopefully advance from here to a full time career in the sports industry.
NORTHERN LIGHTS HOCKEY:
We exist to honor God as we provide our players with an environment that promotes hockey development, personal growth and academic achievement.
We aim to assist each student-athlete on our team to:
*Reach their highest potential in hockey
*Prepare for college, the workplace and life
*Become a positive influence in the community, specifically to challenge others to make smart health choices and to personally serve others.
This summer we plan to host a development camp with several NAHL and USHL coaches that will also serve as our team tryout. We will be inviting several top end high school age players to participate as well to provide an opportunity to be seen by staff at all three tiers of USA Hockey. Because the NL is selecting a team that will be credentialed to play in Russia during the Winter Olympics, we will be completing our roster early and locking in spots by rolling admission.
