ABOUT the EVENT
Join the Toronto Furies of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) for an exclusive Skills Clinic on March 3, 2018, in support of the Grindstone Award Foundation.

This is an opportunity to learn from the best and participate in a private skills session run by professional players of the Furies. Afterwards, listen and learn tips and tricks during Chalk Talk from the players who know what it takes to compete at the highest levels. After increasing your knowledge base, watch the players you just met compete on the ice in their game against the Boston Blades.
Space is very limited! We will only accepted the first 35 players due to capacity. First come first serve. Registration deadline is Feb 22 however, please register ASAP to guarantee your spot.
This event is open to all female hockey players between the ages of 8 and 17, players will be grouped according to skill levels. Registration fee of $60 covers a one-hour on-ice skills clinic, a meet and greet with the Toronto Furies players, chalk talk, ticket to the game, and pizza. All net proceeds will be donated by the Furies to the Charity.
During the event, stop by our Grindstone Award Foundation table to say hi and find out more about our cause. We’ll have apparel for sale and will accept donations.
