Western Washington Female Hockey Association (WWFHA) celebrated Girls’ Hockey Weekend October 9 – 11, 2015 with Lyndsey Fry, 2014 US Women’s Ice Hockey Sochi Olympian, Harvard alumna and newly appointed WWFHA Honorary Board Member.

WWFHA and Highland Ice Arena of Shoreline, Washington were designated as a host organization and site by USA Hockey for the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Girls’ Hockey Weekend, which served as an opportunity to honor female participation in the sport. The goal of the event was to grow the game, provide more opportunities to play ice hockey, and develop a lifelong love of the sport.

64 female players ages 4 -18 joined Lyndsey on the ice this weekend for four age-specific skill clinics. In addition, Lyndsey shared her story, signed autographs and answered a barrage of questions for each group. Fry, from Chandler, Arizona, found an enthusiastic audience in the young athletes. Lyndsey, a warm, engaging and endlessly energetic individual, won the respect of and charmed all who met her.

The timing of Lyndsey’s visit to the home of the Washington Wild as part of the IIHF Girls Weekend could not be better, as WWFHA, in cooperation with Highland Ice Arena, plans shortly to announce the only all-girl ice hockey beginner program in the Northwest, featuring 'Learn to Skate' and 'Learn to Play Hockey' sessions.

WWFHA’s commitment to girls’ hockey is 100% - focusing on the players, their goals, development, and hockey dreams. WWFHA strives to provide a well-rounded offering to its members, both recreationally and competitively, by providing an avenue for growth and development tailored specifically for girls and the female game.
