The Boise Women’s Hockey Association (BWHA) was organized circa 1998 to introduce the confidence building sport of ice hockey to Boise girls and women. While some BWHA members grew up playing hockey, a majority of the members are new to the sport, having watched their spouses, children or friends play. From that small start with one team, the local women’s hockey program has grown to a 5 team recreational league, as well as several travel teams, who practice and travel to tournaments throughout the northwest. We are thrilled that the league continues to grow each season!
As a non-profit 501 (3)(c) organization*, BWHA hosts such annual events as Hockey 101 (where a majority of us got started in the sport!), in addition to development clinics for all ages over 12 years old. These activities are funded in part by member dues, but would not be possible without community support and year-round fundraising.
