What: World Girls' Hockey Weekend When: October 9-11, 2015 Where: Canada - coast to coast to coast
The International Ice Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada have teamed up for the fifth 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!
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 to get involved in the great Canadian game!
In celebrating 2015 World Girls' Hockey Weekend, 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:
