Wanted – Current and Future Female Hockey Players

Do you know of any female hockey players (or potential players) aged five (5) to twelve (12) who would like to take part in an exciting weekend of team building, skills sessions and a small round robin tournament?

Our association in partnership with BC Hockey is hosting a Female Hockey Jamboree at Capital News Center March 24th to 26th, 2017. This will be an event focused on ‘Fun’ as well as a celebration of ‘all things female hockey’. The event provides a great opportunity for girls who have thought about playing organized hockey in the past and are looking for some additional information prior to making their decision. Players will register individually and be placed on teams based on age, experience, and skill level. Registration for Players is $125, and each participant will receive a jersey and gift from BC Hockey, as well as three (3) to four (4) on-ice sessions/games and one (1) off-ice session. Registration for coaches is free. The registration deadline is March 10, 2017.

We’re lucky enough to have a great base of female hockey players here in Kelowna as well as a large group of passionate and knowledgeable parents and volunteers. As a result, we are well positioned to continue to grow the KMHA female program and become the model for female hockey in BC. I would encourage our members to support the Jamboree and would ask our current female players to invite a friend to join them at the event. It promises to be a lot of fun and a great celebration!
