NMHA Female Hockey

The game of female hockey has been played for more than 100 years and has been growing exponentially since 1990, the year of the first official women’s world championship. Today, it is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.

At Nanaimo Minor Hockey our mission statement is to promote sportsmanship, fair competition, development and safety for minor hockey players of all skill levels.

The Nanaimo Minor Hockey Association is proud to support a recreational female division.  Currently, the all-female teams have players in atom/peewee and bantam/midget.  Here is your opportunity to play a great sport with your peers where you will develop your skills, play competitive hockey, make friends for life, and have fun!

Female Esso FUN Days

Hello NMHA families!

 We are helping to organize the ESSO Fun Days Female Hockey Program this year. After seeing how much fun, our daughter and her friends had last year, we wanted to do our part to ensure this event happened again! All current female NMHA players are welcome to attend, as well as any new girls interested in trying hockey for the first time. Please help us spread the word and ignite interest in female hockey within our community by sharing this information with a sister, relative, neighbor or friend that you think may be interested in trying hockey. This program is a great opportunity for females to try the sport with other females in a relaxed environment where the #1 focus will be to HAVE FUN! Did we mention this is FREE(Why not come out and give it a shot!!??!?)
