Esso Fun Days are introduction to hockey sessions designed for females who are new to hockey. Including both on- and off-ice instruction, the program aims to create a free, safe and fun environment for new players to learn the basic skills and rules of the game. The goal of the Esso Fun Day program is for girls and women to gain the skills and confidence to register in a hockey program.
Associations around Canada apply to host either a one-day or six-week program for females of any age.
