MHL to offer a development program for women in hockey


The Maritime Hockey League (MHL) has announced a development program to create hockey operations positions for women.

The league says in a release that up to ten positions will be created in hockey operations roles for the upcoming season such as assistant coaches, development and skills coaches, and scouting.

The program will also include monthly guest lectures from some of the most influential women in the game, including Tara Slone, Meaghan Chayka, Amy Walsh, and many others.

MHL President Troy Dumville says the creation of the program gives women the opportunity to learn and advance, impacting the game and helping advance the future of hockey.

Among the positions available are assistant coach spots with the Truro Bearcats and Pictou County Weeks Crushers.

More details on the program are available on the MHL's website.
