Revelstoke’s women’s hockey team, the Kodiaks, is organizing an all-ages shinny and cake event called Play Like a Girl this Saturday to celebrate an international weekend of women’s hockey.

Hockey Canada and the International Ice Hockey Federation are hosting the sixth annual World Girl’s Hockey Weekend from Oct. 7–9.

The biggest event taking place is the Long Game it starts bright and early on Saturday, Oct. 8 in Newfoundland, where Team Red faces off against Team White. The score will get carried across the country via 60 minute games, and the game will end 15 hours after it started on the opposite side of Canada.

Revelstoke is not participating in the Long Game, but this coming Saturday there will be a free all-ages game of shinny from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the Revelstoke Forum. The Kodiaks are encouraging girls and women of all ages to lace up their skates and put on their gear to come out for this fun event.

Afterwards there will be time to talk hockey, catch up and eat cake. World Girl’s Hockey Weekend is all in the name of the female game.
