It’s no secret that the Washington Capitals fan base has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. One of the fastest-growing segments of the Caps’ faithful is the legion of female hockey fans who rock the red with style! The Washington Capitals are pleased to introduce “Club Scarlet” – a new women’s initiative featuring a dedicated web site and events created specifically for the fabulous female Caps fan!
This ground-breaking program aims to bring together the magnificent multitude of lady Caps fans. They will be able share their passion for hockey in a unique online forum and at one-of-a-kind events created especially for women! Since I started writing Musings of a Hockey Mom , a Cap-centric blog created especially for lady fans, I’ve found that female hockey fans are some of the most passionate, loyal and most importantly, FUN sports fans you’ll ever run across.
Gals love hockey because of the speed and non-stop action and let’s face it – what’s not to love about our Washington Capitals? The Caps are incredibly exciting to watch, full of personality, totally hip and just an overall great group of guys - both on and off the ice!
Some of the great things Club Scarlet offers female Caps fans include a web site, which will feature the latest team news, special events exclusively for Club Scarlet members, hockey rules and game watching tips, blogs written for fellow members to read and comment on about their favorite players and topics, and much more!
One of the most popular events that the Caps stage just for the lady fans is the popular Hockey ‘N Heels program – which sold out in mere hours this year! Hockey ‘N Heels took place on Saturday, February 21 at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, VA. Hundreds of enthusiastic ladies (including Hockey Mom) gathered to take part in on-ice demonstrations (which included learning the intricacies of passing the puck, wrist shots and wicked slap shots), Hockey 101 “Chalk Talk” with Capitals’ famed alumnus Rod Langway and Comcast SportsNets’ Lisa Hillary, an informative film session with Caps’ coach Bruce Boudreau, an up-close look at hockey equipment and much more.
A fabulous time was had by all and ladies, stay tuned for more fantastic things to come!
