For those of you who don't know, Fanshawe has a women's intramural ice hockey league. The league consists of four teams made up of players of all skill levels. There is no body contact and full equipment is required, including neck guards and full face masks. Teams play each other in a season that runs from mid-October to mid-March, followed by a playoff series that ends in a championship. Games are played once a week on Wednesday nights at Stronach Arena located just minutes down the road from Fanshawe College at 10 and 10:30 p.m. After 10 games, the standings are as follows: first place went to Team Campbell with eight wins, one tie and one loss; in second place was Team St-Pierre with four wins and six losses; third place went to Team James with three wins, two ties, and five losses; and in fourth place was Team Wickenheiser with three wins, one tie and six losses.

The extramural women's hockey team is selected from the allstar players in the intramural league. The women's extramural team competes against other colleges in three tournaments. This year the team will competed on February 10 at Conestoga, March 9 at Fleming and March 16 at Seneca. Go, Falcons, go!

There are many benefits of playing hockey, including meeting lots of new people, exercise and playing Canada's favourite sport!
