Great turn out for Global Girls' Game

It was great to see such a large and varied turn-out to the first Global give-it-a-go girls session in Botany Paradice ice rink 9 October. With over 20 participants from ages 5-35, and many very high quality coaches, including the Head Coach of the Ice Fernz, Andy Kaisser; General Secretary of the NZIHF, Jonathan Albright; former Ice Black, Darren Blong; VP Paul Taillon; Captain of the Ice Fernz, Helen Murray; Ice Fernz players Ashley Cunningham and Tessa Broadbent; WU18 players, Mitzi O'Brien, Cealagh Taillon and Sophie Harold and U14 players, Marlene Wimmer, Katya Blong and Jamie Kaisser, each participant was able to improve their skills in small groups of 3-4 players. Several in-liners came along to the session and hopefully some of them will decide to play ice hockey this season for the Women's Rep team, or at least use the opportunity to train with the team.
