Hockey Sessions to Get Women in the Game

Women's Hockey

Winnipeg women wanting to get into the sport of hockey can do so through a new on-ice program.

Canlan Ice Sports is offering an 11-week ladies only session designed to give adult women the opportunity to try Canada’s favourite pastime.

“There are many women out there who want to improve their skating, or learn how to play hockey, but some are intimidated about the idea of taking a skating or hockey program with men,” said Derek McWha of Canlan Ice Sports. “So we’re offering a session where women can learn alongside other women. It’s a really fun environment and a great opportunity for women who’ve thought of playing to come out and give it a try.”

The sessions will run Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. until March 19 at 1871 Ellice Avenue. Registration is $209.
