RED DEER - World Girls Hockey Weekend is quickly approaching, and your team can help us celebrate the female game across the province, country, and world!
For the sixth year in a row, the women’s hockey world will come together for three days - this year from Oct. 6-8 - to celebrate World Girls’ Hockey Weekend.
Associations and teams from across Alberta are encouraged to join in on the global celebration by hosting an event - it doesn’t even have to be about playing the game! Need a few ideas? Click here.

In addition to local events, the centrepiece of the weekend for Canadians, as it has been for the past four years, is the Long Game, which brings together players in every province and territory for Red and White bragging rights in five age groups - Atom, Peewee, Bantam, Midget and Senior.
For the second straight year, Edmonton will host the Alberta leg of the Long Game, capped off with a game between the Knights of Columbus Midget AAA team and the National Women’s Team.
