Each division appreciates players who step up and volunteer as Team Captains. Captains get to select their own teams at the beginning of the season via draft and have their choice in asking subs, if needed. Captains are also responsible for such tasks as making sure your team has enough players and subs, preparing rosters for the scorekeeper and generally representing the team on-ice. Thank you for representing the NCWHL as a Team Captain!
