#ThisGirlCan + #BRHA = GIRL POWER!
WITHIN THE BRHA there is a proud history of supporting the promotion of women's hockey, dating back before the league was first established in 2014.
Going back around 20 years ago, players like Beth Kavanagh and team-mate Kelly were a formidable force with Walkden Cobras in the North West junior leagues. This tradition has been continued ever since with players like Beth Wright, Charlotte Jackson and Judy Browne plus in more recent years, through Holimae Bentham (founder #OnTheRocks), Mali Easton (Winner of TOP NETMINDER at the BRHA Winter Cup 2019) & Katie Jones who has represented female players at senior level in the North West Region, at national level with GB, internationally with Ris-Oranges in France, and most recently at Sparta Women's 2021.

No one gets to choose how you exercise other than you. Your body, your call. And whatever that looks like, we think it’s worth celebrating. #ThisGirlCan, funded by the National Lottery, believes that there’s no ‘right’ way to get active. Get in touch to locate a team near you and try something new, or get back on the skates if you haven’t played in a while.
