PWHPA Women's Hockey Life

Ottawa, ON, Canada (January 6, 2020) —​ Women’s Hockey Life officially announces their media partnership with the Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association (PWHPA).

Women’s Hockey Life believes in the PWHPA’s mission to bring awareness to the need for a viable professional league for female hockey players and is committed to helping them unite and strengthen their voices to create a better future for women’s hockey.

By using their platform and extensive women’s hockey community, Women’s Hockey Life will assist in the promotion of the PWHPA and their events. They will also provide assistance to the players in creating and spreading their own messages with the mission of bringing the women’s hockey community and PWHPA closer together to facilitate understanding, support, and community.

“Our mission of empowering female hockey players, fans, coaches, and others involved in the game aligns with supporting the PWHPA and amplifying the need for a sustainable professional women’s hockey league,” said Kyla Lane, Vice President of Women’s Hockey Life. “Our team at Women’s Hockey Life comes from various backgrounds, but at the end of the day, we stand alongside our community as fans of the game and we’re honoured to be able to help better it alongside the PWHPA.”

“The PWHPA is proud to partner with Women’s Hockey Life,” said Jayna Hefford, Operations Consultant for PWHPA. “We are extremely well aligned in our purpose, as we both aim to empower women and girls through hockey. Together, we will continue to drive awareness to the need for a professional league for women’s hockey, as the best players in the world currently are not provided the resources and infrastructure they need as professional athletes. We are thrilled to welcome WHL into the group of partners who want to be a part of the solution.”

Women’s Hockey Life is dedicated to empowering women and girls in hockey and looks forward to using their resources to aid in empowering the PWHPA’s members in the pursuit of a better future for our game by closing the dream gap between boys and girls in hockey.
