Minnesota has been a leader in the US and across the world in providing girls and women opportunities to play hockey. Last season, there were over 12,500 registered girls and women in Minnesota, nearly 2,750 players more than the state with the second most and more than double the players of the state in third.

A big part of that success has come at the adult women’s level where the Women’s Hockey Association of Minnesota (WHAM) continues to operate the largest women’s hockey league in the country. While WHAM is by far the most tenured league in the state, it isn’t the only option for women as Hockey Finder and Adult Hockey Association (AHA Hockey) also provide women only hockey programs.

Whether you are brand new to the sport of hockey or an elite player with College or Olympic experience, there is a league for you to play in!
