Since re-launching hockey sessions for women in January 2013, Canlan Ice Sports has seen a jump in the number of teams in the Adult Safe Hockey League women’s division, and a continuing demand for the popular practices.

A new session of Women's Hockey Fundamentals for Winnipeg women is taking place starting in January 2014. The program runs on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm, at Canlan Ice Sports at 1871 Ellice Avenue. Full hockey equipment is mandatory.

Canlan Ice Sports runs skating and hockey academies for children, youth and adults at all skill levels, from basic learn-to-skate programs, to advanced hockey skills. The sessions geared towards women are designed to provide basic hockey fundamentals and knowledge of the game, while giving women the opportunity to try Canada’s favourite pastime.

“There are women out there who have always wanted to learn to play hockey, or improve their skating even just to keep up with their kids. So we offer sessions where women can learn alongside other women, in a really fun environment,” says Bryan Vincent, Sales & Marketing Manager for Canlan Ice Sports.

“The session is open to women of any skill level, from beginners through to experienced. It’s an hour of focused instruction and practice per week on the ice, and good training for anyone who wants to sharpen up on power-skating, stickhandling and passing skills.”
