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.

Seasonal Competition Edit

Teams in the JWHL are assigned to a division (East or West), based mostly on where the organizations are located (but not always). Each team plays against the other teams in its division 4 times and against the teams in the other division 2 times during the regular season for a 26 game regular season. Following the regular season, a playoff is held to determine the JWHL Champion.

Games are played with three 20-minute stop-time periods with ice typically being resurfaced between periods. Most games in the US are played on college campuses. Games are played by USA Hockey or Hockey Canada rules depending on the location of the venue.

JWHL Challenge CupEdit

The JWHL's premier event takes place in mid-February with the hosting of the JWHL Challenge Cup. The Challenge Cup brings together all of the JWHL teams as well as invited teams from across the US and Canada. The Challenge Cup has been hosted by The Washington Pride in the Washington, DC area, and is supported by the NHL's Washington Capitals. The 2010 Challenge Cup will be held at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Virginia from February 12-15, 2010.
