Even if the Girls Hockey Day happened to be on a weekend that marked the fall break in Norway, and many families were traveling.
This year, 29 girls showed up, all beginners, not one a member of a team. Not yet.
The event was kicked off with a welcome meeting in which two girls from the Stavanger under-13 team told about their hockey life. And on the ice, the girls were divided into two groups for the skating drills.
Afterwards, everybody got a Girls Hockey button and a medal. All 29 girls said they wanted to come back to the hockey school, and they can’t wait to join a real team.
