Become a Babe on Blades this season

Women’s hocky league looking for new players

Submitted by Andrea Dunlop

Babes on Blades is looking for new players for the 2019/20 hockey season.

One of the top 10 reasons to join our hockey league is that you get to write a cheque to ‘Babes on Blades’! That’s right, you could be a Babe this year! We play a game every Sunday evening. Teams are made in the dressing room before hitting the ice. Sometimes there are goalies, but often as not, the goal is manned by a plastic sheet, a tire or a pylon. We start playing in September and continue until March. Then, there is the much-anticipated awards banquet where we hand out the coveted prizes at our prestigious ‘Babes on Blades Awards Night’. Awards such as the Big Girl Panty award for that team member that acted maturely throughout the year and helped us get stuff done, or the ‘32 C team support award’ prize for that player that was always a positive, supportive member on the bench and ice.

The Babes have been playing for many years and have welcomed players from all over the world. Our most improved award has gone to an Australian that became passionate about hockey and a German who started power skating and was soon racing down the ice for goals.

Come out to learn the game, improve your skating and stickhandling skills or just have a great activity to do every Sunday evening. Our team is open to women over the age of 19 that want to improve their game and be part of a fun, active group of babes on the ice. As a side note, we would love to have a couple goalies sign up!

We have a roster of 18 and will create a sub list so that we always have enough players each Sunday to field two teams.

If you are interested in joining us please contact Penny Powers at and put Babe in the subject box.

The babes would like to wish everyone in the valley a wonderful, injury free hockey season!
