Malaysia has another successful World Girls‘ Ice Hockey Weekend in the books. Or part of it. Two separate 90-minute sessions are planned at Sunway Pyramid Ice located in the Sunway Pyramid Mall in Petaling Jaya. The first took place on Saturday with 20 girls aged 7 to 22, the second sessions will be staged on Sunday. Saturday was also the first ever “Hari Sukan Malaysia”, the Malaysian Sports Day with many sporting activities held across the country.

After getting their T-shirts and goodie bags with snacks and drinks, the volunteers were ready to help the girls into the hockey gear. Eight female coaches and volunteers, all ice hockey players themselves, demonstrated and guided the participants through basic skills and drills. The participants also had the opportunity to play a variety of fun on-ice games.

“It was a great event to participate in on the Malaysia Sports Day and I hope to join the Malaysian Ice Hockey Federation one day when I am a great skater. It was so much fun!” commented Nur Mahirah binti Brahim, one of the participants.

“It was awesome to be registered in ice hockey. It’s wonderful, and the teacher is awesome!” added Nur Qamareena bt Md Rani.

In the last few years the initiative has been used as a first step to bring girls to the skating and hockey classes and often the participants are later joined by other girls and also boys after a first great experience.

The organizers were joined by Minnesotan goalie coach Tanya Sletten. Her presence and especially her efforts to communicate in Bahasa Malaysia were appreciated by the crowd. Language is no barrier in sharing the love for hockey.
