The Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association is once again working to bring female hockey to the forefront.

WLMHA has partnered with Hockey Canada and ESSO to host another ESSO Fun Day designed as an introduction to female hockey for girls and women of all ages.

ESSO Fun Days are designed to familiarize beginners to female hockey and its basic skills at no cost to participants. The focus of the program is to introduce hockey in a fun, positive and non-threatening environment.

Players will be grouped based on age with a mentor, while three coaches will also be on ice.
