CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – The Hockey PEI Female Council would like to announce that for the 2021-2022 hockey season the U15 Division of Female Hockey hopes to have Minor Hockey Associations step forward with interest to pilot a Female U15 AA division. As we begin to watch the female game grow in PEI we see an opportunity to offer additional development opportunities for our female players.
What will the U15 Division look like for the 2021-2022 season if the pilot occurs?
- U15AAA will continue the status quo with a three-team league. This consists of one team in each of the three current Female Zones of Western Wind, Wildcats and Central Storm
- For U15 AA we would need to have no less than four (4) Associations within the three current female zones in the province to express their interest in hosting a AA team. We would expect to have this league run province wide. Provincials would follow the typical process.
- For U15A we would expect to be running a 7 to 8 provincial league and would continue a normal season.
With a minimum number of teams to move forward being four (4) we are asking Associations with interest to please contact your Female Zone Director before the end of day Sunday, September 17th, 2021.

- Krista Millar-Smith – Director, Mid Isle Zone: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Jillian MacPhee – Director, Western Zone: email@example.com
The Female Council together with the support of the Board of Directors for Hockey PEI feel this is a natural next step in the expansion of the female game and look forward to the support from its member associations.
