AN INTRODUCTION TO FEMALE HOCKEY
Temiskaming Shores Minor Hockey is once again excited to partner with ESSO and Hockey Canada to provide a great opportunity to introduce the great game of hockey to females who have not yet tried the sport.
Esso Fun Days is designed to familiarize beginners to female hockey and its basic skills at no cost to the first-time participant. The focus of the program is to introduce hockey in a FUN, POSITIVE and NON-THREATENING environment.
Six FREE ice sessions for beginners:
First ice time will be during the March 21st weekend.
Remaining ice times will be announced soon.
Players are required to have all the proper safety equipment and will be provided with an ESSO hockey jersey.
Please visit the Temiskaming Shores Minor Hockey Facebook page for a link to registration and more information.
Kaia Kellar from the One Stop for U Bantam B Puckhounds was selected to represent the OWHA during the upcoming IIHFGlobal Girls Game. Players were asked to submit essay style responses to various questions relating to hockey and how female hockey has impacted their life.
The IIHF Global Girls’ Game is a celebration connecting countries from all over the world in a single effort to showcase women’s hockey. Over two-and-a-half days, 40 countries will host one-hour games in succession.
Each participating country identifies players that will represent Team Blue and Team White. As the game wraps up in one federation, it picks up in the next with the score continuing to grow. As the game surges on, girls from all over the world are united as teammates!
In Canada, the 2020 IIHF Global Girls Game is scheduled for Feb. 8, 2020 in St. John’s, N.L. Forty U15 players from across Canada will travel to St. John’s for a weekend full of activities including experiencing the unique culture of Newfoundland and Labrador, empowerment activities through sport and the Global Girls’ Game itself.
This is the second year in a row that the bantam Puckhounds have been fortunate enough to have a player selected to the team, in 2019 Kaitlin Thibault was selected to attend the event in Calgary.
Congratulations Kaia, have fun you are are great representative for your team association and the OWHA.
