Don’t Miss the 2014 World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend!

IIHF-WorldGirlsWeekend2013The World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend taking place this Saturday and Sunday is a global opportunity for girls to try out hockey as a new sport. Women’s ice hockey is one of the fastest growing sports in the world thanks to events like this one and similar programs that are being run in many countries. If you want girls in your area to join in the fun, this is a great and easy way to do so! We are fortunate to have 8 rinks and/or clubs participating in Illinois.

What is the World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend?

It is an opportunity for girls of all ages to try ice hockey. We are looking for hosts all around the world to bring girls from their community together on the ice so they can:

  • be introduced to basic skills in hockey in a positive, fun and safe environment.
  • learn about opportunities in ice hockey in their community.
  • learn about fair play, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
  • meet new friends and have a chance to fall in love with a new sport.
