So, you’ve never given a single thought to the idea of playing ice hockey. Maybe you’ve been ice skating a couple of times in the past. Maybe you’re a fan of watching the pros on TV. But playing?? No. Way. What if we were to convince you otherwise? NCWHL offers many resources for women to get introduced to the sport. Let us convince you!
Give Hockey a Try Day
If you’re able to join us for our bi-annual GHATD (Give Hockey a Try Day), this is a fantastic way to get over the jitters with little commitment to purchasing gear or registering for a season. This super fun event is held at San Mateo Ice Oasis. For a small registration fee, our League provides full gear plus a little bit of light on-ice coaching. Then all skaters and goalies participate in a low-key fun scrimmage to end the evening! Most skaters that participate in this event have never played before and few have much skating experience. If that sounds like you, send us a message!
You attended GHATD and now you’re hopelessly HOOKED. Getting geared up for hockey can be an expensive venture, especially if you’re not sure what to get, how to fit it, what size to wear… Let our experts help you! Our League volunteers hold a Gear Sale after each GHATD and sells gently used gear for a small fraction of the cost of buying new. It makes getting started so much easier!
Ready to go? You tried hockey at GHATD. You got geared up. You’re ready for the next step, but you’re worried about not knowing anything about hockey, much less how to skate. Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered! NCWHL’s Green Division accepts all skaters and goalies at the beginner level from little experience to none at all. Our coaches will show you the ropes from skating, to stick-handling, to game rules. All games in Green Division are coached, too! Green offers a fun and supportive environment for complete beginners to flourish.
