The Western Washington Female Hockey Association (WWFHA) hosts a Learn to Play class every Sunday at 10:15am at Highland Ice Arena.

The class teaches girls age 4 - 9 the fundamentals of ice skating and playing the game in a fun, supportive, and playful environment. There are two groups in each class based on skill: Hockey 1 and Hockey 2.

Currently the class includes 43 girls that have never played the sport before and are preparing to join a full-time team in the Fall, or advance to the next level of Learn to Play.

The class accepts players completely new to skating or those those who have previously taken figure skating or hockey lessons. With each session players receive a Washington Wild jersey and pair of hockey socks to keep. Participants also end each class by selecting a sports card depicting one of the Washington Wild players who play on a full-time team and serve as role-models for the younger players.

The next available Learn to Play class starts in October; with a Girls' Try Hockey for Free event planned for September. WWFHA is a non-profit girls' ice hockey association with the mission of empowering girls through the sport of ice hockey. WWFHA Washington Wild teams include players from Washington State, age 4 - 19 years old, on numerous age-specific recreational and elite teams.
