All six (6) FMAAA teams will be back in action for the league’s winter Showcase Weekend, January 14 – 16, 2017 at Planet Ice in Delta, BC.
The FMAAA was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite female Midget teams. The league has had over 100 players move on to post-secondary hockey opportunities.
