As part of the Iqaluit Amateur Hockey Association’s weekend hockey camp, girls under 12 practice hockey skills at the Arnaitok Arena Oct. 14 during a drop-in session. Coaches Deb Strome, Jessica Cox and Kevin Bathurst visited Iqaluit to teach older girls between 12 and 18. But the IAHA scheduled the drop-in session to introduce younger girls to hockey, and to encourage those who do play hockey to stay with the game. Papatsi Rojas, 16, who’s played hockey for two years, said the training with out-of-town coaches was valuable. (PHOTO BY SAMANTHA DAWSON)
