What: World Girls Hockey Weekend When: October 10-12, 2014 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!
In celebrating the 2014 World Girls Hockey Weekend Event we encourage all communities across Canada to host an event and participate in the world-wide event! Here are some examples of events you can host:
