CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada will join with hockey federations from around the world on Sunday, October 2 for the first-ever World Girls’ Hockey Day, created by the International Ice Hockey Federation as part of its initiatives to help grow the women’s game.

"Female hockey continues to grow around the world, and this is just another way to help foster that growth,” said Trina Radcliffe, manager of female hockey development with Hockey Canada. "World Girls’ Hockey Day is a way to show our support for and make sure we continue our involvement in the growth of the women’s game."

World Girls’ Hockey Day will introduce women to hockey in a positive, fun and safe environment while helping them learn about hockey opportunities in their communities. The day also promotes fair play, sportsmanship, teamwork and making new friends while playing hockey.

To celebrate, female and minor hockey associations across Canada will be holding activities, including public skating, Esso Fun Days, Try Hockey Days, team building activities and other events celebrating female hockey.
