CHICAGO MISSION WIN TORONTO AEROS USA/CANADA CUP!

Congratulations to the Chicago Mission U16 girls team on winning gold at the Toronto Aeros USA/CANADA CUP.  After playing 4 tough round robin games, where they went 2 and 2,  the team found themselves leading the US division and set to compete in the finals vs the first place Canadian team, the Whitby Wolves.  Seems like the third time was the charm for the girls vs a very competitive Whitby team, who had beaten them in their 2 prior meetings this season.  The final game was filled with back and forth action and was tied 3-3 at the end of regulation.  A 3 min 4 on 4 overtime did not decide the outcome so the team went to a shoot out where the Mission prevailed!  Congrats again to all the girls on a great weekend of hockey.

Updated Chicago Mission U19 College Commitments

Since the inception of the Chicago Mission Girls Program in 2007/08 our focus has been on two complementing goals  . One , was to create a positive hockey environment where our players can be trained and inspired to reach their potential both as players and people . Secondly , was to help our players achieve their goals of playing college hockey at the highest possible level .

We believe that the right academic fit is a given and of course it is the number one family priority . It goes without saying that the most important factor in a college selection is where the student /athlete will get the best education . However , with that said , our players do compete daily for Division 1 playing opportunities . Scholarships  that can help a family off set the ridiculous cost of a higher education and potentially leave a student debt free upon graduation . We make no apology for this focus and our track record speaks for itself .  

With that said , while winning is important our focus has never been and never will be on winning banners for the sake of winning banners . Our focus is on the simple goals stated above to help our players get better daily and to play college hockey at the highest possible level .The 2012 class has started to make commitments ( see below ) and we congratulate all of our players on their accomplishments . We are proud of all the players who have gone through the Mission in the past . Since our founding 4 short seasons ago 28 of our players have committed D1 and 14 D3 . Their example , hard work , and commitment has set the tone for the 2012 class . And the tradition continues .

Mission U19 forward Kaille Heidersbach  has accepted a full scholarship offer to St Lawrence University . After weighing several D1 offers Heidersbach a strong power forward committed to Head Coach Chris Wells several weeks ago . Heidersbach who has captained the Mission 19's the past two seasons was rewarded after years of hard work at various Illinois organizations , the last 3 seasons with the Mission . 

After receiving several D1 offers last year Kaille made a very difficult decision to post grad this season .  She had her heart set on St Lawrence and took a risk and it paid off , said Tony Cachey . Great kid , great player and will make an impact at the next level , added Cachey . On behalf of the entire Mission organization we wish Kaille and her family much success  . Well Done !

She is a great example of what a student athlete should represent equally committed in the classroom as on the ice . We are proud of her and wish her nothing but the best . For right now , were thrilled she will be still in Mission colors for two more seasons . Congrats Fi , Dawn , Steve and the crew ....... well deserved !

Sidney Peters Accepts Scholarship to Minnesota

Peters , still a junior , who led the USA U18 team in the net this August verbally committed to Coach Brad Frost several weeks ago . Peters a terrific goalie who is absolutely 100 percent committed to the game and getting better will make a nice addition to the already storied tradition at Minnesota . Peters who started her career at the Mission as a U12 has not forgotten . She is almost always out at U12 practices helping the young players always setting a great example of how to carry oneself . Congrats to Sid and her entire family !

Its a credit to Casey and her entire family that she is the person she is ,  and has been rewarded with this opportunity . .So to the whole Maciejewski family ( grandma too ) Congratulations !
