Girls want to play hockey, and they want to have fun. They are encouraged to do both in Hockey West Island’s girls’ hockey program, while at the same time making new friends, keeping fit, developing their skills and learning about teamwork. For many of the players in HWI’s girls’ program, hockey is not just a game, it’s a way of life! Most thoroughly enjoy sharing their love of the game with anyone who will listen – or get on the ice with them! From single letter teams to double-letter calibre, whether a first-year player or an experienced skater, we encourage all girls to join and play. In 2012, HWI will have (at minimum) single-letter girls’ teams at the Bantam, Midget and Junior levels. For those who would like to play with other girls, there’s always the option of teaming up with a neighbouring association to encourage them! Our double-letter teams play for Lac-St-Louis.
More and more young girls are playing hockey. As such, a Hockey Féminin Convening Committee was formed by HWI in 2012 to support and encourage growth within the girls’ hockey program. Led by people with many years of involvement in the program, and assisted by girls from the program, we encourage all HWI female players and their parents to get involved and be heard. The future of HWI’s girls’ program depends on your support! For any questions relating to girls’ hockey, please contact our Girls’ Hockey Committee via firstname.lastname@example.org.
