With hockey season already winding up and registration underway, many people are wondering if there will be a women’s hockey team this year in the Hazeltons’.

In the past, there was a solid team for many years but players moved away or hung up their skates for various reasons and the past few years have been hard. Last year there wasn’t a team after a hard season the year before which saw several women show up initially and then fade away by Christmas. This year, organizers are looking to start up the team once again. However, there needs to be a certain level of support and enough players interested in order to put a team on the ice. With ice times already being claimed, people would have to act quickly in the next few weeks.  With that said, organizers are hoping for at least 20 interested females between the ages of 16 and 65 and experience or level of expertise is not a requirement.  Anyone who is interested can contact Shannon at 250-842-7077 or e-mail your intentions and interest to btnd@telus.net before August 19.
