Female Players

The Northern Hockey School is making the development of the women's game and increased participation by females in hockey a priority. Girls are encouraged to sign up for our youth camps. Additional to encouraging girls to join the youth camp, the Northern Hockey School is looking to put on a mini series aimed especially at developing female involvement at all ages. Not just at the minor hockey age range, but throughout all age levels. 
The sole goal of the female mini series is to increase the participation of women in hockey at all levels. The female mini series will be a two part series, consisting of an information session, and a practice. It is open to females of all ages who are currently playing hockey, or are interested in playing hockey at any level. They do not need to be participants in the youth camp.  The camp will present the women with the opportunity to meet women with similar interests in starting to play hockey and for young players to meet older players who can act as role models. Players from the Northern Hockey School and the community are encouraged to register and come out to all or any part of the mini series.
 
The free information session will consist of a panel of current and past players, coaches and members of a BC Hockey Female Task Force and will cover the opportunities for female participation in recreational and high performance hockey. Discussions will surround recreational opportunities for minor hockey and adult leagues as well as high performance opportunities such as Female Midget AAA, academies, or more local options such as regional teams.  A question and answer period will follow.
 
A practice for players of all skill levels, from never having played before to high performance players. The 75 minute practice will look to introduce new players to the game, while providing opportunities for skill development at all levels. Participants will need to register, as spots will be limited.
