AIHA Take Part in Global Initiative to Grow Women’s Hockey
Auckland Ice Hockey Association took part in the World Girls Ice Hockey Weekend on Sunday 29th October.
The event, run in conjunction with the New Zealand Ice Hockey Federation (NZIHF) and the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) has a global presence and aims to bring girls and women together on the ice so they can:
- Be introduced to basic skills in hockey in a positive, fun and safe environment.
- Learn about opportunities in ice hockey in their community.
- Learn about fair play, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
- Meet new friends and have a chance to fall in love with a new sport.
Close to fifty participants of all ages and skill level took part on the ice in what was a fun day for all involved and a great introduction to the world of ice hockey for newcomers to the sport.
Auckland Ice Hockey Association wishes to thank all of its volunteers who assisted on the day, as well as the New Zealand Ice Hockey Federation for their assistance and funding for the event.
