New York Islanders Hold Ice Girls Tryouts at Iceworks Syosset

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 09 September 2011 00:00
Every hockey fan likes to think their favorite team is special, but the New York Islanders can boast that they were the first team in the NHL to introduce the Ice Girls: a dedicated team of skaters who present the team’s flag at every game. On Saturday, Aug. 6, 24 female skaters headed to Iceworks Syosset on Underhill Boulevard to try out for one of only 10 spots on the 2011-2012 Ice Girls team.

With the exception of one lockout season (2004-2005), the Ice Girls have been part of the show at Islanders’ games since the 2001-2002 season. In addition to presenting the Islanders flag at every game, Ice Girls keep the ice clean during games, and perform an additional routine when the team wins. The girls must be over 18 with strong skating skills, capable of skating backwards as well as doing lunges, spirals, t-stops and power crossovers.
