Over 30 girls from all over the Seattle metropolitan area and beyond joined Western Washington Female Hockey Association's (WWFHA) coaches, student coaches, and Washington Wild players on the ice at Highland Ice Arena in Shoreline on Saturday for USA Hockey's 'Try Hockey for Free' event as part of the Hockey Weekend Across America celebration!

The girls were outfitted in ice hockey skates and gear for the first time and were given a USA Hockey jersey to keep, as they took the ice for the first time. After an hour of free skate, hockey skill drills, and a lot of fun the players left the ice exhausted and smiling. Each new hockey player received USA Hockey stickers, NHL trading cards, a WWFHA-branded lanyard, and a certificate of participation.

New players are encouraged to register for the next all-girl beginner class starting May 1st. Registration opens soon.

WWFHA is the only all-girl ice hockey association in the state and  is a non-profit, 501(c)(3), volunteer-run association dedicated to promoting girls’ ice hockey and developing female players in the US Pacific Northwest.
