In May 2011, Josh Brandwene was introduced as the first head coach of the Penn State women's ice hockey team. PSU's inaugural varsity team made history in October 2012 by winning its first ever game, 5-3, over the University of Vermont.
One year later on Friday, Oct. 18, 2013 we hosted our inaugural game in the Pegula Ice Arena, the $90 million, state-of-the art facility, against Union. Pegula Ice Arena has some of the best amenities college hockey has to offer, from two ice surfaces to a weight room, hydrotherapy training room, steam room, team lounge and locker room area. Coach Brandwene's experience includes over 20 years of coaching and administrative experience at the international, collegiate and prep school levels. These are undoubtedly exciting times in Hockey Valley!
Thank you for considering the Penn State Girls Ice Hockey Camp. Last summer's camp was a record setter for us! Highest ever participation with over 85 campers, a great staff, lots of fun and instruction for all! Those considering sending a child for the first time, we realize there are several options for you and your family to consider during the summer. Our staff continues to provide the very best combination of instruction and a fun experience to players of all ability levels, and we hope you will join us. To those who have sent a child to one of our previous camps, thank you for your continued loyalty -- we look forward to welcoming you back. If you have questions about our philosophy or curriculum, please contact us any time. I look forward to hearing from you!
