Black Girl Hockey Club has established a *scholarship program to subsidize the costs of playing hockey for Black women ages 9-18 years old. Scholarships are offered annually for those who fulfill the scholarship criteria. These scholarships are designed to assist and encourage Black women to pursue their interest in hockey, a sport where they are often underrepresented.
