The United States women's national ice hockey team is controlled by USA Hockey. The United States has been one of the most dominant women's hockey teams in international play – second only to Canada – having won gold or silver in every major tournament with the exception of the 2006 Winter Olympics, where they captured bronze. The U.S. had 61,612 female players in 2011.[1]

In 1998, the Women's Olympic Hockey Team was named the USOC Team of the Year. In 2015, the Women's National Ice Hockey Team was named the USOC Team of the Month, in April.[2]

Facilities[edit]

The team's training and development program was located in Blaine, Minnesota, at the Schwan Super Rink, the largest ice facility in the world for the 2010 Winter Olympics. For the 2014 Winter Olympics, the team's training was located in the Greater Boston region at the The Edge Sports Center in Bedford, Massachusetts and for off-ice fitness at the Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning Center in Woburn, Massachusetts.[3]
