"This festival was more than just getting teams together to play hockey. Through workshops and clinics it helps the players understand the concept of the total athlete—mind, body, athletic ability, community—and also the support they have off the ice," says Wickenheiser. "They all leave Wickfest winners. We want the girls to see the possibilities, to be inspired to push harder and accomplish more… because they can."

'WickFest,' as the tournament has endearingly been coined, also helps raise awareness and funds for two organizations very near and dear to Wickenheiser – Right To Play and JumpStart.
