About UAE Ice Sports Federation (UAE ISF):
UAE Ice Hockey Association was formed on 1996 and then has been changed in 2012 to UAE Ice Sports Federation which is now the government body of all ice sports games in UAE. It’s enabling clubs and people to encompass all ice sports as they develop in UAE. The Federation has the formidable yet pleasant task of spreading the sport of ice hockey and developing it in the very varied society that makes up the United Arab Emirates. UAE ISF has put focus and emphasis on the youth, school children, college and university students who will ultimately form a chain that continually refresh the formal teams of UAE. UAE ISF has also invested their efforts in the development of a women’s team that shows a healthy promise in following the founding men’s teams’ footsteps toward success.
