Our history

The club around A-license coach Günther Ropatsch takes part in the International European Women's Hockey League (EWHL), Supercup European Women's Hockey League, as well as in the Austrian national championship.

As the "Carinthian selection", our players come from various cities in Carinthia and so we reach a wide variety of target groups in a wide variety of places in our state.

Since ice hockey is very popular in Carinthia and women's ice hockey is also becoming increasingly popular, we are proud that the number of spectators at our games is constantly increasing.

Most of our players are already in the squad of the Austrian women's national team, which also confirms that the development of the players through participation in the EWHL is very important.
