2016 HOCKEY PEI WORLD GIRLS HOCKEY WEEKEND SCHEDULE

The International Ice Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada have teamed up for the 6th annual World Girls Hockey Weekend, which aims to celebrate the female game, unite Canadians in growing women’s hockey, and provide grassroots programming from coast to coast that allows girls and women of all ages to discover the sport, grow their skills and enjoy everything lacing up skates and stepping onto the ice has to offer.  Hockey PEI is proud to be part of this celebration.

We greatly encourage everyone to participate, either as a player, volunteer or supporter. Female hockey has grown exponentially in the last 25 years, so let’s keep the momentum going!

Whether you’re a veteran hockey player, an enthusiastic beginner, an inspired parent, or simply want to improve your skills or share your experiences, this year’s World Girls Hockey Weekend will have opportunities for everyone to get involved in the great Canadian female game!

Events

There are several events planned for the weekend.  The feature event is the World Girls Hockey Weekend Long Game, Hockey PEI will be hosting five games on Saturday October 8th. These games will be a part of a full continuous game across Canada that sees Team Red versus Team White in five age groups that unite players coast to coast.

Also, this year Hockey PEI is pleased to kick off the season with a Jamboree in Pownal for all Novice and Initiation female players.
