The benefits of females playing female hockey are reflected on both the skill development and the social aspect of the game. It is important for girls to have the opportunity to interact with teammates and be leaders on their teams. The skill level of female hockey has increased dramatically and girls today have the opportunity to compete at a high level and still benefit from the social and leadership side of the game as well

*Full hockey gear is required with the exception of a mouth guard although it is recommended
-Helmet (labelled with last name on it; as simple as a piece of tape and a sharpie works!)

It is a good idea to label all of their gear
