Gopher Women support youth hockey associations through Association Days and Youth VIP Hockey Pass

Plan Your Association Day!

Come experience the speed and skill of women’s college hockey with your youth association by planning an Association Day at Gopher Women’s Hockey!  The two-time defending National Champions start the 2013-14 in just a few short weeks when the Gophers take on the Wisconsin Badgers on October 11th at 6 p.m. in Ridder Arena. 

The University of Minnesota has developed Association Days as a special offer for Minnesota youth hockey associations to promote girls' and women's hockey across the state. Gather your teams together and select a Gopher Women's Hockey game for a chance to win special gifts and experiences for your players and association. Plus, the more people you bring, the more freebies you’ll receive.
