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!

Any questions or inquiries can be directed the female director at nanaimomha@shaw.ca or by phone at 250-754-5010
