We are the Bombshells
The Beverly Bombshells are a club of over fifty individuals dedicated to playing and supporting one of the fastest growing women’s sports. lt takes a special type of woman to be involved ice hockey. If you are reading this you have decided to join or are thinking about joining and supporting a new FAMILY of strong women who will support, encourage, and respect their teammates. Some like a sister and some like your crazy aunt, but a family nonetheless! The Bombshells offer many fun and exciting events and opportunities, but it is important that you take your responsibility as a skater seriously. There are a few minimal requirements to be in good standing with the team and these requirements are to assure that every skater is doing their part to make the Bombshells a sustainable group while working on their skills on the ice. We want to cultivate the blatant and latent talents of all our members and have fun while doing it.
Two years ago, a new rink opened up in Beverly and three women saw an opportunity to start a new team. Cynthia “Lupa” Lupa, Sandy “Shorty” Schneider and Erica “Boom” Bankowski with the help of interested players made the beginnings of this newly formed team. Through social media, word of mouth, and local flyers the word got out and the Beverly Bombshells were born.
So where did we get the name? After several failed votes and at least 4 different surveys, we still had nothing. While driving through her work territory, “Boom” passed an old street sign in the middle of southern Illinois that had Bombshell in the name and immediately knew we had something!AND IT STUCK! Finally! Beverly is the neighborhood near the rink and thus made a nice alliteration name of the Beverly Bombshells.
