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. 7-9 - 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.

This year, Edmonton will host the Alberta leg of the Long Game. For more information about the Long Game in Edmonton, including a game schedule, click here.
