World championship record[edit]

Having failed to qualify for Group A of the 1999 world championship, Latvia debuted in the Women's world championship within Group B. In the following Tournaments, the Latvian Team competed at this level (renamed Division I in 2003). They were saved from demotion in 2005, further to the extension of the division elite. Their best performance was realized during the 2007 Tournament with a second place of Division I, complemented by an IIHF rank of 11th. However, in 2008, they were relegated due to a last place finish. They remained in Division II but earned promotion after the 2009 Tournament.
