Alberta Hockey Day
Hockey Alberta held its inaugural Alberta Hockey Day on January 21, 2017, to celebrate and showcase female hockey across the province. This day combined a number of on and off-ice events catered to both new and existing participants, focusing on fun, skills and friendships.
Grande Prairie served as the host site of Alberta Hockey Day’s main event, with special guests in attendance, including two-time Olympic gold medallist and former Team Alberta player and coach Carla MacLeod. Additional Alberta Hockey Day celebrations were held across the province.
Hockey Alberta’s goal is to develop female players, coaches and officials who are currently in our program while introducing the sport to new participants.
