Presence of Iranian Womenís Hockey Teams in World Competitions 

National Iranian women hockey players started their sport activities with domestic competitions such as the National League championships. Also in 2012, the first women inline national hockey team was formed, which won the third place in its first international experience at the Asian Championships. The Asian Championships are held every other year and so far, the womenís inline hockey team has participated in four competitions and won three Asian bronze medals. 

Currently, due to the opening of the first and only standard track in Iran, which started its work in May this year, these players have started their activities in ice hockey and are trying to continue ice hockey and inline hockey together to be able to get better and more titles in both fields. 

At present, the first national team selection camp has been formed in the ice hockey section, and 33 players have been shortlisted to continue the camps. Finally, 20 of them will be selected to attend the first experience of the national womenís team in the international ice hockey which is the Asian Challenge Cup and will be held in the Philippines in May. The team will be led by Mr. Kaveh Sedghi, the head coach of the Iranian national team, and Ms. Marina Fagoaga Jalinier and Ms. Azam Sanaei as the team coaches.
