The Seattle Women’s Hockey Club strives to establish a welcoming environment for women to learn to skate and play ice hockey in an atmosphere of cooperation and competition.
Established in 1997, SWHC welcomes all women who want to play ice hockey. Our members have a wide range of hockey experience, from none at all to 20+ years. We have nearly 100 current members and we are growing all the time!
Give Hockey a Try This August!
Seattle Women’s Hockey Club welcomes women of all abilities and has a particular interest in introducing the sport to brand new skaters. With this in mind, SWHC offers an annual clinic called “Give Hockey A Try” where women 18 years of age and older can come and try hockey, sometimes for the very first time, at no charge. This clinic also allows us to reintroduce the game to players who may have been out of the sport and gives them the chance to fall in love with the game all over again.
No experience or equipment is necessary. SWHC will provide you with everything you need to participate. Our motivated player volunteers will staff the event and ice helping each player choose gear, suit up and step on the ice. A hockey coach will guide the players through the fundamentals, lead some drills and then everyone will play some hockey.
Our next Give-Hockey-a-Try day will be held Sunday, August 14th 2016 at Sno-King Arena in Kirkland. Check in will be between 10:00-10:30am, and we’ll hit the ice at 11:00am. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to save yourself a spot!
About Our Club
The SWHC season runs from September through April each year. No previous skating or hockey experience is necessary to join the club. We start the year with skater evaluations and then distribute the talent equally throughout the teams. We have our club teams that blend all skill levels together and our tiered teams where players of similar abilities are organized into novice, lower intermediate and upper intermediate teams. We have structured practices each Monday and games every Saturday where we play teams within the club as well as other teams in the area. Tiered team play occurs approximately once per month and these teams compete in two tournaments during the season. We offer game only, practice only, and full club memberships. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
