South Winnipeg Hockey Association (SWHA) and Fort Garry North Hockey Association (FGNHA) operate a joint female hockey program under the brand Winnipeg Storm. Girls thrive in the female program because they are amongst peers with a common purpose – to have fun, develop skills, learn the game, and compete.
The Female program fall under Hockey Winnipeg which means our teams play other area associations throughout the city. The Female program is divided first by age and then by skill division.
U9 (ages 7 & 8) have three skill divisions: A1, A2 & A3;
U11 (ages 9 & 10) have three skill divisions: A1, A2 & A3;
U13 (ages 11 & 12) introduces AA (Twins program), and then has two skill divisions: A1 & A2;
U15 (ages 13 & 14) has AA (Twins program), and then two skill divisions: A1 & A2;
U18 (ages 15, 16 & 17) has AA (Twins program) and one skill division: A1
Throughout the season, Winnipeg Storm players receive player development skates with Vigier Hockey. The development skates typically occur every two weeks and are on Tuesday nights at St. Norbert Arena.
