Welcome to Female Hockey at FYHA

2012 - 2013 Season Recap

The 2012 - 2013 season was a very successful one for girls hockey in FYHA.  We saw a significant rise in female participation this season.  We had a successful on-ice event in conjunction with One Goal World Girls Hockey Day in October geared towards girls not yet registered with FYHA.  We continued our weekly skills and drills sessions on Sunday evenings from 5:30pm - 7:00pm.  We had 3 all female teams at FYHA this season.  Our rostered all female peewee team took home the Southern NB Female Hockey League Championship and won silver in the "AA" division of provincials.  We also had teams at the Novice and Atom levels with the girls able to "double card" with their existing co-ed teams.  Our Novice girls participated in the KV jamboree and scored 3 victories in their 3 games played.  Our Atom team also competed in exhibition games throughout the year and showed very well at provincials.  Congratulations to all those involved and thank you for making this season our best yet. 

Looking ahead to our 2013 - 2014 Season

All Female Skills and Drills

Skills and drills will continue this season with a weekly one-hour session.  These sessions will focus on the fundamentals of the game of hockey, with a strong emphasis on skating.  This is complimentary for girls registered with FYHA, and for a small fee for those who are not.  The length of the program, along with day and time will be determined closer to the season.

Novice Furies (players born in '05/'06)
There will be an all female novice team to play other female novice teams in exhibition games and jamborees.  The girls will be allowed to 'double card' again this season and will have their regular ice time with their coed team.  

Atom Furies (players born in '03/'04)
We are icing an atom team to play in the Southern NB Female Hockey League.  There will be regular practice time along with regular home and/or away games on weekends.  There will be some travel involved playing in this league with likely destinations in the Saint John area.  Practice times will begin in October.  We will have preseason games with other all female teams during that time as well.  

We are also icing an atom comp 'A' team to play in the Southern NB Female Hockey League.  There will be regular practice time along with regular home and/or away games on weekends.  There will be some travel involved playing in this league with likely destinations in the Saint John area.  We will play against other comp 'A' girls teams in the province, and likely some female peewee teams as well.  Tryouts will begin in early October and the cost is $30.  We will have preseason games with other all female teams during that time as well.

PeeWee Furies (players born in '01/'02)
We are icing a Peewee team to play in the Southern NB Female Hockey League.  There will be regular practice along with weekly home and/or away games on weekends.  The league is anticipating teams at the peewee level next season from the Saint John and Sussex areas, so there will be some travel involved with playing in this league.  Last season the peewee girls were league champions and silver medalists in the "AA" divison in provincials. Practice times will begin in October.  We will have preseason games with other all female teams during that time as well.  Before the peewee team is formed (late-October before the peewee draft), you will need to make a decision between joining a co-ed team and the Furies all female peewee program. 

Bantam Furies (players born in '99/'00)
We are icing a Bantam team to play in the Southern NB Female Hockey League.  There will be regular practice along with weekly home and/or away games on weekends.  The league is anticipating teams at the bantam level next season from the Saint John, Sussex and St. Stephen areas, so there will be some travel involved with playing in this league. Practice times will begin in October.  We will have preseason games with other all female teams during that time as well.  Before the bantam team is formed (late-October before the bantam draft), you will need to make a decision between joining a co-ed team or the Furies all female bantam program.
