The NCWHL holds “Give Hockey a Try Day” (GHATD) twice a year prior to the new season starting to give women with no playing experience an introduction to ice hockey. Absolutely zero experience in skating or hockey is needed! Full gear and on-ice coaching through light drills are provided. Participants then enjoy a fun, controlled scrimmage towards the end of the session.
After GHATD, participants are invited to shop at our used Gear Sale where lightly-used, donated gear is sold for a fraction of the cost of buying new. This is a great way for new players to get into the sport on a budget! Donations of used equipment are always welcome.
