Unusual for sure. I think this is only the second year Assabet has been in this tournament and they are up to 3 teams all ready. What about the USA selects? Aren't they a summer team? Surprised not to see them at NAHA.

The tournament page lists Assabet (2) in the U17 field but the schedule page has the Mass Spitfires U16 team listed on the schedule so not sure which is correct.

AV's website lists U19, U17, and U16 teams for this tourney.

The USA selects are a summer team comprised mainly of AV and SSM girls.
They're all back with their club teams by now.

So if they have a U16 team and a U19 team, whats the U17 team. I thought the USA hockey designations were U19 and U16.

The U17 team is essentially a second U16 team. This team is replacing the Spitfires.

The JWHL, like the PWHL has a U17 (Midget) division. In the case of Assabet, they have a team of players 16 and under, and a team of 17 year olds (and possibly unders).

After having a look at the Assabet website it seems the U17 Assabet Team is made up of; (2) 17 yr. olds, (6) 16 yr. olds and (8) 15 yr. olds to be exact.

With that makeup sounds like it might be a red minor team u16 or u19
