The tournament of over 80 teams will welcome around 1,500 female hockey players from around the world for a weekend of competition, empowerment, learning and camaraderie.
“We’re looking forward to the largest and most successful event to date,” says Dr. Wickenheiser. “We’re so thankful to the City of Surrey for providing support and space for our tournament to grow and aid in providing an opportunity for young girls to try a sport they may not otherwise have considered!”
A series of workshops hosted in parallel to the hockey games are intended to grow not just the player, but the young person – on and off the ice. All speakers at the events are esteemed professionals at the top of their fields including local resident Meghan Agosta, who herself is a four-time Olympic medalist in hockey and a former teammate of Dr. Wickenheiser.
Beyond the games and workshops, Canadian Tire WickFest will also host a special sold out “Fire and Ice” game on Saturday, February 4th – a game between the Canuck Alumni and the Surrey Firefighters Association, which will raise funds for the Surrey Fire Fighters Charitable Society.
