Being part of a team is a living example of how we’re better together. That’s why we’re proud to offer a series of events specifically supporting girls in minor hockey. Girls 7-14 can participate in combination of skills, training and motivation from local female hockey players and CWHL stars.
As a proud supporter of one million kids and counting, Scotiabank is happy to provide this event FREE of charge to all participants.

Over the last year, we have experienced a considerable amount of change and have had to adapt as the world navigates the COVID-19 pandemic.
Traditionally, Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest has been a place where young female athletes could spend half a day learning from some of the top female players in Canada, participating in on-ice drills, off-ice training, nutritional and speaker sessions. At Scotiabank, we believe these experiences help young athletes to connect with the game they love today to become strong female leaders for tomorrow. This year, although we could not offer an in-person event, it was still important that we provide female athletes an opportunity to learn and continue to grow as players.
On March 7th, 2021, Scotiabank hosted the inaugural Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest Summit. An hour-and-a-half virtual session dedicated to women’s hockey.

Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest gives young female athletes the opportunity to both learn and thrive within the sport of hockey, alongside their fellow teammates. Hockey has always played an important role in my life and being able to share the sport and teach young girls the value of teamwork, dedication and respect for others is amazing! The best part of this program is that it allows girls to fall in love with hockey, the same way I did when I was young.
