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.
