Female Hockey – Stars/Saints
The St. Boniface Female Hockey Committee (SBFHC) is responsible for organizing, promoting and advancing the female minor ice hockey program in St. Boniface and Transcona. The SBFHC is a voting member of the St. Boniface Minor Hockey Association. St. Boniface is the only hockey association in Winnipeg with a female hockey committee.
The SBFHC is comprised of a convener, vice-convener, Stars Cup tournament chair, treasurer, secretary and a representative from the Transcona Minor Hockey Association. For 2008/09, the SBFHC has added a position responsible for the Bantam AA program. Additional members are appointed from the SBFHC hockey teams. These members assist in the decisions of the SBFHC, including the preparation and execution of the Stars Cup tournament (held in late March).
Female teams are formed according to Hockey Winnipeg rules based upon the number of players registered at each age division. The number of registered players and the minimum/ maximum roster size determines the number of teams to be entered. The number of teams entered then determines the number of teams at the A1, A2, and A3 level of play.
