AC Girls Hockey is proud to welcome its new head coach, Elsa Bruestle!!!
Elsa joins the Armstrong/Cooper program in 2016. Prior to becoming the Girls Varsity Head Coach, she was the head coach of the AC Girls U15 team, taking them to the state tournament. Elsa has also coached AAA teams for three years. Elsa played high school hockey for the White Bear Lake Bears. She continued on to play Division I Women's Ice Hockey for Union College in Schenectady, NY. She is finishing her Master of Arts in Teaching with a license in 5-12 Social Studies at Hamline University.
November 4th & 5th, JV and Varsity will be participating in Scrimmage Fest, hosted by the Willmar Girls Hockey team.
The purpose of the pre-season trip is twofold: 1) to gain some scrimmage experience, and 2) to do some team building.
Parents, family, and friends are welcome to support the team at the games, however the players will be rooming together.
Rooms at the Best Western Plus have been reserved for players and coaching staff.
If you prefer not to drive back and forth, there are 5 rooms available to boosters at their own cost. Please contact Best Western reservations at 1.800.780.7234. Ask for the Armstrong Cooper rooms.
Hotel address: 2100 Highway 12 E, Willmar MN 56201
At this time, we are not certain of the game or bus schedule. Stay tuned for more details.
