Here at The Pink Puck we love to mention the women who are not only fans of the game, but those who also play it! This weekend, a few of these women will skate into McCall, Idaho for the tenth annual Chix with Stix Tournament, hosted by the McCall Ospreys. While many of you may not be familiar with the Ospreys, the team strives to promote hockey to women and girls in McCall, helping to grow the sports we love.
The Ospreys convey exactly who they are and what they look to accomplish via their website;
“We are women of all ages, backgrounds, and interests coming together to play hockey. Our player’s ages range from 18 to over 50 years old. Our members have a variety of backgrounds, from highly educated professionals to high school students. We are active members of the community, articulate, and enthusiastic about playing hockey and representing the community.
The sportsmanship and enthusiasm of these ladies makes them excellent role models for kids and adults alike. All of these things create a positive image for the community and our sponsors. The McCall Ospreys Women’s Hockey Team brings a novel approach to the fast paced, action packed sport of ice hockey.
Our focus is to have fun, promote hockey for girls and women, and develop McCall’s reputation as a hockey town.”
If you’re in McCall this weekend, be sure to take in a few games and support the sport we all love and the women who are playing it!
