Female Hockey Day is coming back to the Island Savings Centre later this month.
The free event for girls of all ages and experience levels, intended to increase interest in the sport, will take place Saturday, Aug. 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Girls ages 5-12 take the ice at 11 a.m., and girls 13 and up begin at 1 p.m. "Whether it’s your first time out or you’d like to brush up on your skills, you’re guaranteed to have fun," ISC program assistant Courtney Westwood said.
Sessions will focus on introductory skills and game play. Complimentary snacks will be available, and snacks will be handed out.
All participants require a helmet, gloves, stick and skates. For more information, or to register or arrange for equipment, contact the Island Savings Centre at 250-748-7529.
