ABOUT the EVENT

This year Girls Rock the Rink will be held over two days, on SATURDAY & SUNDAY! We have decided to open up the event to include 4 different groups. Groups will be dependent on age and skill levels. This year we will have Olympian, NATALIE SPOONER coming to Kelowna to join our event which will be something the girls won’t forget. Saturday will consist of an on-ice skills session with SPOONER, 1 dryland session, a 30 minute Leadership & Empowerment Session with Registered Clinical Counsellor, Barb Egan. We will of course have a stack of experienced female role models on and off the ice. On Sunday, the girls will participate in a game or more small game style activities (for the younger girls) where the girls can try out their new skills.

 

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 event is brought to you by the Grindstone Award Foundation and sponsored by Kelowna Minor Hockey. This is your opportunity to have your daughter give hockey a try for the first time or to learn some new skills with friends.
