In recognition of the achievement and contribution of women and girls to the hockey community, HV has set aside this weekend and either adjacent round as ‘Women and Girl’s Round’. Our club is proud to be part of this initiative and hope that each member can participate in the activities.
Please see below FHC’s Women’s Round Flyer listing all the relevant FHC home games and activities!
What does it mean for you?
