The Vanderhoof Minor Hockey Association will be hosting the 2015 Northern Female Jamboree from November 20 – 22, 2015.
Funded in part thanks to a legacy fund from the 2012 National U18 Women’s Championship that was held in Dawson Creek, the Northern Female Jamboree will be a celebration of all things female hockey.
Lee Holland, President of the Vanderhoof Minor Hockey Association, said, “Vanderhoof is a great hockey community, and this Jamboree will give us a chance to show people how big female hockey is here. It will be a great opportunity for female players in the north to come together and have a fun weekend playing hockey.”
The event will feature opening ceremonies, team building events, off-ice games, a skills session, and a small round-robin tournament with an emphasis on fun.
Registration is open to female players age 5 to 12. Players will register individually and be placed on teams based on age, experience, and skill level. Registration for players
costs $50, while registration for coaches
is free. Each participant will receive a jersey and gift from BC Hockey. The registration deadline is November 15, 2015.
