While hockey registration numbers in general have been down slightly over the past few years, it's mainly on the men's side of things, as more and more women are getting into hockey in Canada than ever.
Even as we start to emerge from a pandemic, we're seeing stories about leagues such as this one in Yellowknife who are experiencing higher female registration numbers than they've ever had.
We love this, and if there was ever a ridiculous notion that hockey was a man's game, we think we can finally put that to rest once and for all.
It's refreshing and encouraging to see so many women coming together and discovering all of the benefits that the game of hockey comes with - making new friends, getting exercise, forgetting about life for an hour on the ice every week. The list goes on and on.
We hope to see the train keep rolling and the amount of women playing hockey in Canada continuing to grow.
If you're on the fence about getting into the game for the first time or even getting back into the game, or simply don't know where to play in your area, contact us. We are always happy to help!
Let's keep the numbers climbing!
