Wednesday, September 27, 2017

BC Hockey is set to kick off the 2017-2018 hockey season by celebrating World Girls Hockey Weekend (WGHW) October 6 – 8, 2017. A number of events will be taking place around BC and the Yukon, including Esso Fun Days, the Long Game, tournaments, and other female hockey celebrations.

Minor Hockey Associations (MHA) are encouraged to register their WGHW events with Hockey Canada as part of the nationwide celebration. Participants of registered events will receive free toques courtesy of Hockey Canada. Events can range from games, tournaments, or practices to off-ice activities such as ball hockey games or dryland sessions. Activities for newcomers are also encouraged, such as Esso Fun Days, Try Hockey Days, “Bring A Friend” skates, or “Mom & Daughter Skates”.
