“We’re extremely pleased with the enthusiasm and number of locations participating in World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend,” said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. “USA Hockey has been, and will continue to be, a leader in helping grow participation in girls' and women's hockey."

Events being hosted include American Development Model clinics, hockey jamborees, Try Hockey for Free opportunities, female-only tournaments, introductory informational sessions about the sport, and numerous other hockey-themed gatherings.
