RED DEER – Grant applications for Female Hockey Day are now open for Minor Hockey Associations across Alberta.
Female Hockey Day is a Hockey Alberta initiative aimed at bringing female players, parents, coaches, and supporters together for the development, growth, and celebration of the game. This initiative began in 2018 and had since made stops in Grande Prairie, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Lloydminster, and Calgary, with one being held virtually due to COVID-19. Fort McMurray will be the host site for this year’s event which is taking place on January 27 at the Frank Lacroix Arena.
“The Female Hockey Day Grants provided by the Hockey Alberta Foundation is a great way to bolster girls hockey within your association,” said Morgen Kidney, Hockey Alberta’s Female Hockey Coordinator. “Whether you have concrete registration numbers and want to celebrate this, or are looking to host player or goalie ‘try’ sessions to increase your programs; this is a fantastic opportunity to get some financial support to do so.”
The Hockey Alberta Foundation is giving up to 10 $1,000 community grants for associations to hold their own Female Hockey Day in conjunction with the main event in Fort McMurray.
