2020 FEMALE HOCKEY FESTIVAL
APRIL 9-11, 2020
Halifax + Dartmouth
ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT
The Female Hockey Festival is an annual year-end event hosted by Hockey Nova Scotia for female hockey players of all levels and ages, whether they are registered in the game or not. Players from IP to Midget are invited to participate in games throughout the weekend, with any level of experience.
For the first time ever, the 2020 Female Hockey Festival is coordinating with the IIHF Women’s World Championships to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Players are invited to cheer on Team Canada and take the ice themselves during this fun-filled weekend for hockey players and their friends and families.
In partnership with Hockey Canada, participants signing up for the tournament will also be able to secure tickets for themselves and up to to 3 friends or family members with them to the IIHF Women's World Championship semifinals, bronze medal game, and gold medal game in the upper bowl.
This exclusive ticket package, not yet on sale to the public, is also discounted by nearly 25% to make this event available to as many female hockey players in Nova Scotia as possible.
Join us for a weekend of hockey, including:
Play 2 full-ice games with officials
IP and Novice play 2 half-ice games
Sign up with friends, teammates, or as an individual
Sit in the upper bowl in an exclusive section for female hockey players, their friends, and families
Bring up to 3 additional friends or family members with you to all 4 games

Any female hockey player in Nova Scotia can register as an individual and will be placed on a team with players of appropriate age and skill levels.
If you are traveling with a group or have a friend or sibling you would like to play with, you can provide their information so that you're registered for the same team.
