Girl’s Rock the Rink

About the Event

Girls Rock the Rink was an initiative started by a small group of enthusiastic parents and coaches in 2014. Every year we have grown into what we are today!

This is your opportunity to have your daughter give hockey a try for the first time or to learn some new skills with friends. This is a fun event with both on and off ice sessions, games and depending on what age/skill group players are in – we will be holding mini-skill competitions.
