The Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest returns on March 7th in the form of a free virtual summit, open to girls, young women and their families and friends with a passion for hockey.

The hour-and-a-half virtual summit is dedicated to women's hockey, and features sessions from Canadian hockey talent and Scotiabank Teammates Cassie Campbell-Pascall, Natalie Spooner and P.K. Subban, among others.

"As we can't be together on the ice this year, we're bringing Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest virtually to all attendees," says Laura Curtis Ferrera, Chief Marketing Officer, Scotiabank. "The online format will allow even more girls from across the country to participate and learn from leaders in women's hockey. Scotiabank is committed to making the game of hockey accessible for all and promoting and supporting women's hockey is a big part of that."

The Summit will focus on player development, inclusion and nutrition and will feature speakers from Hockey Canada, the NHL, the Professional Women's Hockey Players Association (PWHPA) and You Can Play.

As a bonus, participants will have exclusive access to the virtual Scotiabank Arena, where they will be able to navigate interactive elements and score exclusive merchandise and giveaways.

Registration for the summit is open until March 5, 2021. The full event agenda can be viewed here.

In its 15th year, Scotiabank Girls HockeyFest traditionally takes place in six cities across Canada and includes both on and off ice programming. Due to the pandemic, the program has pivoted to a virtual summit, allowing more girls from coast-to-coast-to-coast to participate in the event – for free.
