The Largest Female House Tournament on the Continent

Welcome to this season's guests!

The Richmond Ice Classic Female Recreational Hockey Tournament, inaugurated in 1996, is the largest all-female recreational hockey tournament in North America.

This destination tournament is a unique opportunity to play against other recreational female hockey teams.  On March 29-31st, over 1500 female athletes will attend the Richmond Ice Classic from 105 recreational hockey teams.

More than half of the teams will travel from places throughout Canada and the USA.  Many of them have come for years or even decades.  Teams love finishing their seasons at the Richmond Ice Classic.

In 2023, the Richmond Ravens Female Hockey Association was thrilled to host its largest Ice Classic ever.  In 2024 we will be even bigger!
