Metro Milwaukee Women’s Hockey offers women of all skill levels (novice to advanced) a chance to experience the great game of ice hockey. We have limited equipment available to outfit novices who want to try the sport before committing to it.

Potential members may attend their first practice at no cost

Please contact us for more details.

Clinics:

Peridicaly we offer Spring and Fall skills clinics that are open to all levels of experience. Clinics are run by qualified Instructor/s and include a brief review on skating technique, along with puck handling, shooting, passing drills and positioning. Clinics can be divided into two groups allowing the beginners more room to focus on the fundamentals and the more advanced skaters to focus their training on a variety of drills. Check our calendar for upcoming clinic dates.

Summer House League:

Consisting of 4 teams and skating 10 games June thru August at the Pettit National Ice Center we offer our summer inhouse league. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged to play. Teams are created with a mix of all skill levels on all teams to ensure fun for all. Summer is recreational and not highly competitive. It was created for the individual to work on their own skills within a game atmosphere, try new things, learn from others, make new friends, and most of all to have fun.

Competitive Travel Teams:

Currently we have 4 competitive teams, known as the Brew City Blades, competing in the WCHL. (Womens Central Hockey League) You may check out the league by clicking here. These teams have traveled throughout WI, IL, and MN and have participated in tournaments as far as Florida. Qualified coaching staff, scheduled practices, league, along with exhibition games, and weekend tournaments are part of the fun. Tryout evaluations are held annually. If you are interested in learning more, check out our evaulation dates, or contact us for details.

Rec Team:

Each year we review the interest for a Brew City Blades rec team. When the rec team has enough interested skaters, 8 - 10 games are played Pettit National Ice Center early on Sunday afternoons starting late Oct and runs thru Feb. Check out our rec team for more info.

Skating Schools:

If you are a beginner skater, we support a variety of programs run at the Mullett Ice Center and Ozaukee Ice Center along with other rinks as they become avaiable. Area rinks offer learn to skate and learn to play hockey programs. If you are interested in these programs, please contact the rinks directly. 

Please Contact Us:

We want you to feel welcome on the ice and in the locker room. Contact us to let us know you're coming and we'll be sure to look for you and introduce you to everyone. 

What to Bring/ Need Stuff: 

We highly recommend bringing a water bottle while skating. Besides that, we practice in full gear:

  • Skates
  • Shin guards
  • Breezers (pants)
  • Elbow pads
  • Shoulder pads
  • Gloves
  • Helmet
  • Stick
  • Jersey
  • Socks

If you are new to this sport, you might not have everything. NO PROBLEM. Contact Sue Mishler at suemishler@yahoo.com. She will bring extra gear for you to borrow.

 

What to expect: 

Most players arrive about 30 minutes early. Some of us are slow dressers and some of us are big talkers- either way, we need the time! The locker room assignments at Pettit are listed on the wall on a clip board across from the skate rental downstairs or on the monitor in the front lobby. Other rinks are usually listed near the concession stand.

Cost:

As much as we all love hockey, we regret we must charge for this fun. The good news, though, if you are just trying us out your very first practice is FREE! After that, we must pay the bills…
