World Girls Hockey Weekend

Help Celebrate World Girls Hockey Weekend

What: World Girls Hockey Weekend
When: October 11-14, 2013
Where: Canada - coast to coast

The International Ice Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada have teamed up for the 3rd annual World Girls Hockey Weekend, which aims to celebrate the female game, unite Canadians in growing women’s hockey, and provide grassroots programming from coast to coast that allows girls and women of all ages to discover the sport, grow their skills and enjoy everything lacing up skates and stepping onto the ice has to offer.

We greatly encourage everyone to participate, either as a player, volunteer or supporter. Female hockey has grown exponentially in the last 25 years, so let’s keep the momentum going leading up to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia!

Whether you’re a veteran hockey player, an enthusiastic beginner, an inspired parent, or simply want to improve your skills or share your experiences, this year’s World Girls Hockey Weekend will have opportunities for everyone get involved in the great Canadian female game!

Bonjour, en collaboration avec les Foreurs de Val-d'Or de la ligue junior majeur du Québec, nous allons promouvoir le hockey féminin lors de la partie du Cancer du sein soit le 11 octobre. Une équipe féminine Midget A feront les portent drapeaux et une pee-wee A formeront une haie d'honneur pour les survivante du cancer pour la mise au jeu officielle. Nous aurions pu avoir l'opportunité de faire un mini-match entre la première et deuxième période comme les petit Tim Bits, mais je n'ai pas réussi a avoir des chandails rose en commandite pour habiller nos joueuses de 4,5 et 6 ans. Donc voici notre façon de souligner le hockey féminin à Val-d'Or qui en passant est la seule ville en Abitibi a avoir des clubs ferment. Bonne journée   Nathalie Larivière
