Why are you offering a Cross Roster instead of this Dual Roster?
Dual Rostering requires that 50% of the All-girls team commit to the All-Girls Team only. 50% of the team will still be allowed to play Co-ed, and 50% cannot. Cross Rostering and Dual Rostering are WAHA-governed rules organizations must follow. Please make sure you understand these rules when looking into other Girls only teams in the Dane County Area.
Will my player be eligible to go to state with her girl's team?
No. We would be required to use the Dual Roster program to be eligible for State.
Does my player have to play Girl's-Only Hockey?
I have a U8 girl that is interested in Girls-Only Hockey opportunities. Will there be a Girls team for her?
There will be girls' jamborees during the season and if there is enough interest hopefully a girls-only bracket at the 2023 3v3 March Thunder tournament in Stoughton. If there is an appetite, We are committed to creating more opportunities on the U8 level.
2022-2023 Cross Roster
Stoughton along with neighboring Hockey associations hoping have created All Girls teams for 2022-2023 at U10 and U12. The team are Cross Roster teams, allowing the girls to play on an all-girls team yet still play Co-ed with their home associations.
The goal is to give our girls an opportunity to play and meet other girls in their area who enjoy hockey. Many of the girls want to play high school hockey, making this an excellent way for the girls to spend time together before then.
Cross Rostering allows girls to play for both a Girl's team and their Co-ed team.
Preliminary feedback from our associations is that the girls enjoy playing together and would like to do more of this. Still, they are not ready to discontinue playing Co-ed altogether, and we feel it makes sense to let this transition and decision happen gradually.
