From the NCEWHA, the Carolina Fury was created. 2003 marked the beginning of the Carolina Fury PowerHockey™ Team. After competing together as a team for just a short time, the Carolina Fury combined with a group from Baltimore, Maryland and participated in the 2004 PowerHockey™ Cup, held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Carolina Fury has since competed in the 2006 Powerhockey™ Cup in Calgary, Alberta and the 2010 Powerhockey™ Cup in Toronto, Ontario.
In addition to the Powerhockey™ Cup tournaments; the Fury has also hosted the Carolina Powerhockey™ Invitational in Raleigh, North Carolina in 2009. The team also traveled to Philadelphia in 2011 for the USA Powerhockey Championship. The 2009-2011 competitions were the first events in which the Carolina Fury had a team made up of all players from North Carolina. While the competition was a thrilling time for the athletes and the trips became memories that will last a lifetime, the most important benefit of participating were the new friendships the team made with people from all over North America.
The Fury has grown each year, but in order for the team to continue to succeed, the NCEWHA has to grow. The Carolina Fury is not participating in the 2012 Powerhockey Cup because we need to focus our efforts on growing Powerhockey in NC.
Currently, the Fury practices in Pikeville, NC at Charles B. Aycock High School which is near Goldsboro. Because of logistics, cost, and support from CBA, this has been the best venue to hone their skills. The team includes players from all over the state including far away Burlington, NC. These players love the game and are willing to make sacrifices to be at each practice and game.
We realize that hockey still isn’t the most popular in a state known for its basketball and baseball, but if you want to play a sport and may not be not strong enough to play others, you should try PowerHockey™. It is the most adaptable sport for people with disabilities.
Male or female, young or old, it doesn't matter. As long as you have the size and maturity level to compete, you can be a part of the growing success known as the Carolina Fury.
