BC Hockey’s Female Midget AAA League (FMAAA) and the South Coast Female Amateur Hockey League (SCFAHL) are hosting their first League Weekend of the 2012-2013 season on Friday, October 12, 2012 – Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre. The weekend features ten (10) FMAAA and nine (9) SCFAHL games over the weekend, starting on Friday afternoon.
The League Weekend allows family/friends and fans to watch the best midget-aged and senior female teams in the province play in a single arena. The weekend is also part of festivals and events taking place around the world in celebration of World Girls’ Hockey Day. Female Minor Hockey players from Pacific Coast will be shadowing Female Midget AAA and Senior Teams throughout the weekend. World Girls Hockey Day is an opportunity for girls of all ages to try ice hockey. Hosts from around the world are putting on events to allow females to 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, teamwork, meet new friends and have a chance to fall in love with a new sport.
The Female Midget AAA League was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite Female Midget teams. In the five (5) years the Female Midget AAA league has been operating, it has sent over fifty (50) female players from BC on to play at post secondary institutions in Canada and the US.
