I am a volunteer coach for the UWBHF. Co-founders Alessandra and Karen, work work very hard to raise the participation level as well as the skill level in the women's game. The tournaments are exciting and well organized and the clinics are simply a fun way to give back to the ball hockey community! The UWBHF has held clinics for youths and adults locally in MA and as far away as the Quad Cities in the midwest. All of the volunteers are great people and work hard to make every event the best it can possibly be.
UWBHF is an organization that says what they mean- they work hard to give women and girls an opportunity to grow in the hockey community. They always put together teams for novice players, or those who may not have a foothold with an established team. The international-caliber coaches engage the girls at their tournaments to truly become part of their community. Getting girls together for sports teams is an amazing outlet, and I am grateful for the organizers who give us so many opportunities to play the game we love!
My daughter had an awesome experience playing in a tournament last weekend with UWBHF. What a great group of players. She said there was tough competition but everyone was so nice. She really enjoyed herself and was so excited to take part in the tournament. Kayleigh can’t wait until the next tournament.
UWBHF is run by an amazing group of people who commit themselves for the love of the game and development of the sport for future young female athletes. I'm so thankful for this group of wonderful people.
We also traveled from Pittsburgh for the tournament. We were welcomed by the entire community and my daughter had a blast playing in her first all female tournament. She normally plays on a team made up of mostly boys. She made new friends and contacts with an all girl Pittsburgh team that she looks forward to practicing with soon. She loves all things hockey and this didn’t disappoint!
First class organization that gives female players, both younger and older, a voice. Having a younger daughter that has played coed since she was 9, we really did not know what she would do once she aged out of the youth leagues at 16. Now that we are involved with this organization I am confident that they will continue to grow the sport and that there will be a wealth of opportunities for our present and future female ball hockey athletes.
After attending Oktoberfest this past weekend, where my niece participated with her USA U20 team, in preparation for their trip to Slovakia in July, it was apparent that this organization is 100% dedicated to all females who love this sport. The people involved want the younger generation to achieve their goals and are willing to share their knowledge and skill no matter the age. What a wonderful organization to have helping the female youth of thisnsport.
Thank you so much! She was awesome!
We traveled from Pittsburgh to participate in the woman’s tournament, Oktoberfest. At the age of 12, my daughter was fully embraced by this amazing community. It was such a warm, positive experience and we are so grateful!
Thank you so much for coming out! We loved having her participate!!
Last weekend I was able to play in Oktoberfest! It was an amazing experience. It was organized, fun, and a great community! I look forward to participating in more events!
Thanks so much! You were AWESOME!!!
Last weekend, my 14 year old daughter had the privilege of traveling from Pittsburgh, PA to Dracut, MA for Oktoberfest. What a wonderful time it was. We received a lot of information of ball hockey opportunities that we didn’t know were out there. Thanks to this organization and everything they do to not only let the girls enjoy the sport they love, but also learn and grow as a player.
Thank you so much! We loved having her play! She was amazing!
