FMH is excited that female hockey has been growing at a rapid rate over the past few years.  At this time Fernie does not consistently have sufficient numbers of female players in any given age division to offer exclusively female teams, however every year, we will closely assess the numbers of female and total registrants to evaluate all options available.  There is currently no female league in the East Kootenays but all associations work cooperatively to offer additional female opportunities throughout the season.


We encourage all female players to register in their regular age divisions where we offer integrated skill and team development.

Female Hockey

Expanding on the success of past sessions, Fernie Minor Hockey will be using portions of our extra development ice sessions to offer female-only opportunities in the form of extra practices, clinics and jamborees (dependent on sufficient member interest).

If your player desires exclusive female hockey participation, they must first be registered with FMH and then you may apply for release to play in a female-only program in Cranbrook or Elk Valley if such programs exist in a given year.  Rostering and AP (affiliate player) opportunities must follow Hockey Canada / BC Hockey criteria.
