Women's How To Hockey Clinic

Never played hockey before? Played just a season? This clinic is for you! 


This new/novice hockey clinic will cover hockey skills including skating, stick handling, shooting, and game strategy. Instruction is aimed at brand new to early novice players. Goalies will also have instructional time with individual coaches and then a chance to be at the net.


We encourage you to attend both sessions.


Session 1: September 7 at 6:45-7:45pm 
Session 2: September 17 at 3:45-4:30pm 


Cost: $10 per session

Nervous? Not sure this whole Hockey thing is for you? Totally OK (and you should definitely try it)!

 

  • I have never played hockey before! Yup! Many WHAMmers never played and didn’t even know hockey rules. Those who have played for years want women to love the sport like they do! This is a development league and the goal is to encourage women to try it out. It’s totally ok that you’ve never played.

  • I have never even skated! No worries! Many of us had never skated or perhaps skated at the local mall when we were 8 years old…it doesn’t matter! You don’t need to be able to skate for these clinics or even for WHAM games! We do encourage you to participate in public skate through Glacier Ice Rink–it’s a great way to gain some confidence.

  • I’m super nervous to be out there–what if my teammates get frustrated with me? We get it! In fact, we lived it! Many of us had never played, and felt nervous on the ice. This is an incredible group of women who want to introduce the game to others. We encourage WHAM players to support each other and cheer each other on when they try their best! 

  • I don’t have any gear! And I don’t even know how to put on the gear! There are lots of used gear on Facebook Marketplace, CraigsList, as well as local shops like HockeyWolf. Generally, we suggest buying new(ish) helmets and skates that fit well. Some WHAMmers may also have extra gear they’re willing to let new players borrow, so ask one of the WHAM Board members for help. During the clinics and WHAM games, ask someone to help you get your gear on–we are happy to help!
