Dan Griffith - Head Coach
The Lyndon Institute Girls Ice Hockey Team is a combined program with North Country Union High School. This combined team, known as the Kingdom Blades, practices four times a week on ice during the season at the Jay Ice Haus and the Fenton Chester Arena. The hockey season begins the second week of November and ends March 5th and the team plays 24 games during the season.
Fenton Chester Arena, the on-campus hockey facility, opens for play October 12th, approximately four to five weeks prior to the start of the high school ice hockey season in which our players have ice time daily prior to the start of the season. In addition, team members participate in local adult pickup league as an opportunity to play one or two times a week with former high school and college players in a high level game atmosphere. This provides our players with three extra hours of high level game experience weekly though out the season. Fenton Chester Arena also offers stick and puck time during the week and weekend that provides additional opportunities for skill development. Future plans for the arena include the installation of synthetic ice to extend its skating season.
Our team also participates in strength training with a professional service (XIP Training Systems). This training is scheduled three days a week throughout the school year, utilizing the Performance Center facility on our campus.
Our coach is Dan Griffith, a former North Country Union hockey player where he played four years of varsity hockey at North Country. Mr. Griffith has coached over 20 years at the youth and high school level.
