Women's Hockey Family Literacy Day

The University of Waterloo Women’s Hockey Team partnered with the Waterloo Public Library during “Stories N’Skate for Family Literacy Day” to provide an afternoon of fun for the whole family. The Lady Warriors were able to interact with the children one-on-one through crafts, activities and stories before everyone headed onto the ice for the free skate. The purpose of this event was to help the community join together in nurturing future generations through literacy and activities. The Stories N’Skate encourages children to enjoy reading and to stay active throughout their lives, while also giving the Warrior athletes an opportunity to give back to their community that has supported them through their athletic careers.
