The Junior Women's Hockey League is an ice hockey league established in 2007 to provide opportunities for young females to develop into collegiate student-athletes. The JWHL has teams in both the US and in Canada and will be entering its third season of play in 2009.

TeamsEdit

Based on the league setup the teams do not have a true home arena as the games are played showcase style with teams playing 3 or 4 games each against different teams at one location over a weekend.  Teams usually play in other events outside of the league setup during the season. The league also plays under two different sets of rules depending on what country the games are played in. USA Hockey rules for games played in the United States and Hockey Canada rules for games played in Canada regardless of what country the two teams playing are based.
