Esso Fun Days are a free, safe, and fun introduction to hockey for girls and women

Hockey Canada and Esso continue to promote women’s hockey recruitment through the Esso Fun Day program, which originated in 1998 and has grown to become one of Hockey Canada’s largest recruitment tool for girls and women. This unique program was designed to help thousands of first-time players step on the ice and start their hockey journeys!

The free program introduces girls and women to the basics of hockey.
