We recently posted on our social media platforms about Bauer Hockey’s announcement regarding a Hockey Bill of Rights as it pertains to females. An initiative that focuses on equal access and opportunity for females in hockey.
At NHTC – we proudly support this initiative along with girls hockey. We are here to help raise up girls in the same positive culture that boys have been a part of for decades, pursuing excellence and honing the sport of hockey.
Athleticism holds many great benefits and rewards, and being handed a medal is not the only measuring stick from which to gauge success. Sometimes just picking up a hockey stick and making it a personal goal to defy stereotypes is the greatest win of all!
Line Change recently wrote an article highlighting girls hockey – or the lack thereof – stating: “It’s not a secret, we all know that it ain’t fair out there. More money is driven into boys hockey than girls, which creates a ripple effect.”
As a passionate dad writing this article, he goes on to challenge the fact that little is being said, or done about truly implementing change, bucking the status quo, and creating space for female hockey teams or training.
We believe it takes the desire to play the sport, the tenacity to get in the game, and the community of like-minded parents to make that happen – along with support from hockey training facilities such as NHTC. We have always offered and supported girls hockey, and continue to be prepared to get into the rink alongside you!
