LLOYDMINSTER – Female Hockey Day celebrations are heading east to Lloydminster Saturday, January 29. The event encourages female players, parents, coaches and supporters of all ages to gather for the development, growth and celebration of the game.
After hosting the event virtually in 2021, Female Hockey Day – presented by ATB Financial – will include on and off-ice sessions for current and prospective players, development sessions for goaltenders and a coaching clinic for Hockey Moms. Try Hockey events for both youth and adults will be offered, as well as an Intro to Hockey event for U7 and U9 players. Players in U11, U13, and U15/U18 divisions will take part in on and off-ice development sessions.
The evening will feature the Alberta Female Hockey League’s U15 AA Lloydminster Richardson’s Jewellery Jr. Steelers facing off against the Sherwood Park Royals. To cap off the festivities, those who participated in the day’s activities will be invited out to a post-game skate with the Steelers.
Registration is now open with more information to become available in the new year.
Please check the Servus Sports Centre website for all COVID-19 vaccination requirements and updates.
Join the celebration and help us share #WhyWePlay January 28-30 for Female Hockey Day weekend.
The Hockey Alberta Foundation is offering $1,000 Every Kid Every Community grants for up to 10 associations or teams who are looking to join the Female Hockey Day celebration by hosting an event that can help grow our game.
Potential ideas for events include:
- Try Hockey (ice or floor) for new participants.
- Offering a “Skate with the players” following a community game.
- “Bring a Buddy” – Existing players bring a friend to try it out during a practice.
- Mother/Daughter skate/scrimmage.
- Other exciting ideas!
Deadline to apply: Friday, December 31
Applications will be reviewed by the Female Hockey Day Committee and successful applicants will be required to complete a brief post-event survey along with submission of event photos.
