Frequently Asked Questions about Girls Hockey Night 2016.
What is Girls Hockey Night?
Girls Hockey Night aims to promote the sport and celebrate that women are not limited against enjoying what is traditionally seen as a men’s sport.
What is the event about?
Girls Hockey Night is held in conjunction with the World Women’s Ice Hockey Weekend by IIHF, but had been tailored to suit the needs of Singaporeans. It is opened to public and aims to welcome more girls to play ice hockey. Participants will be given the opportunity to experience the sport. As the event is open to public, it assumes that participants have no experience on the ice at all.
Other than on-ice experience, we are also holding free seminars for parents to share their experiences about having raised kids who play ice hockey. Parents from our youth hockey program (Singapore Ice Dragons) will be here to talk about their successes with their kids who has graduated and went on to hockey schools in Canada. We also have the girls from the Women’s National Team around to help you understand more about the sport in terms of rules, the way it’s being played and their challenges as a player.
What is the IIHF’s motion in supporting the idea?
World Women’s Ice Hockey Weekend is initiated by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). Although held on 9th October 2016 worldwide, we have shifted the dates according to our local school schedule.

Where does Singapore stand in terms of Women’s Ice Hockey?
Singapore Ice Hockey, although had been in the country for over 20 years, its international presence is rather fresh. The Women’s National Team plays in the highest division of the annual Women’s Challenge Cup of Asia.
