Come Join Our Ponytails and Pucks! Little Girls Team or Our Woman’s Hockey Team
Hollydell Women’s Ice Hockey Women’s In House League. All Skill levels. Thursday Night Games. Hollydell Women’s Ice Hockey is an all female In House league at Hollydell Ice Arena. The league consists of over 60 skaters of mixed age and skill level. Some are college students, former college students, doctors, lawyers, stay at home moms, hockey moms, high school players, and rookies. We currently have 4 teams in the spring league that play on Thursday nights at Hollydell at 7:15 and 8:45. The program initially started off a few years ago with a women’s learn to skate program and since then has evolved into a league. Women enter the league for all different reasons. Whether it’s for exercise, competition, off season training, or just a night out, they all come to play. Some players are interested in pursuing hockey at a college level, with Rowan Women’s Ice Hockey around the corner. This program also allows girls to participate in a non checking league. We welcome all. Visit our Hollydell Women’s Ice Hockey Facebook page.
