Welcome to the Women's ice hockey task force, an initiative of WikiProject Women's sport.


This task force focuses on articles related to women's ice hockey including:

  • Players, clubs, managers, leagues and competitions, seasons and associated articles
  • National teams
  • International women's ice hockey competitions including tournaments and matches

Our main goals are to:

  • ensure women's ice hockey articles are represented on Wikipedia by creating and editing related articles
  • establish and organize standards for Women's ice hockey-related articles resulting in well-written articles
  • improve the visibility of articles related to women's ice hockey by nominating them for DYK placement on the Wikipedia homepage, or improving them to good or featured status

To join, please add your name to the Members section. There are many ways for you to contribute - small and large. If you have a question, post it on the task force's main talk page.

Notability criteriaEdit

Although there are no top women's leagues expressly included in WikiProject Hockey's notability guideline: WP:NHOCKEY, there is often enough media coverage about a player, team, or league to meet the WP:GNG guideline, which takes precedence over WP:NHOCKEY. For college athletes and coaches, see WP:NCOLLATH. For youth, see WP:YOUNGATH. For Olympians, see WP:NOLYMPICS.

The key to ensuring that an article that you create is not deleted is providing adequate referencing to meet WP:GNG or WP:SPORTCRIT.

  • Make sure the article talk page is tagged with {{WikiProject Women's sport|icehockey=yes}}, so that other editors can further improve the article or contribute to an Articles for deletion (AfD) discussion, if needed.

If you have any questions or run into any issues, feel free to post them on the project's talk page.

Any member of the Women's Ice Hockey Task Force may assess ice hockey-related articles by following the guidelines below. If you aren't sure about an article, ask about it on the WikiProject Women's Sport assessment talk page.

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Women's sport}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Women's sport|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):
FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class Women's ice hockey articles)  FA
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Women's ice hockey articles)  FL
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Women's ice hockey articles)  A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Women's ice hockey articles)  GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Women's ice hockey articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Women's ice hockey articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Women's ice hockey articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Women's ice hockey articles) Stub
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Women's ice hockey articles) List
For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Women's ice hockey articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Women's ice hockey articles) Disambig

NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Women's ice hockey articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Women's ice hockey articles) ???

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Women's sport}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Women's sport|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project (see Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Priority of topic for assessment criteria):

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance Women's ice hockey articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Women's ice hockey articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Women's ice hockey articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Women's ice hockey articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Women's ice hockey articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Women's ice hockey articles)  ??? 

*Importance guidelines have not yet been created for WikiProject Women's Sports nor its Ice Hockey Task Force. The importance guidelines from WikiProject Ice Hockey may be appropriately adapted in the interim.
