The Norwegian women's national under-18 ice hockey team is the national under-18 ice hockey team in Norway. The team represents Norway at the International Ice Hockey Federation's IIHF World Women's U18 Championships.

History[edit | edit source]

The first ever Norwegian national under-18 gathering was held 12–14 December 2008 in Hønefoss. The team would enter 2009 IIHF World Women's U18 Championship – Division I, which were held in Chambéry, France from 28 December 2008 to 2 January 2009. Birger Aaserud og Kjersti Malo Dyb were the coaches chosen to lead the national team.[1]

At their very first World Championship tournament, they faced Japan, France, Slovakia and Austria. They lost all of their matches and ended last in the group with a goal deposit of 9–16. Japan earned a promotion, but since Division I is the lowest division, Norway avoided relegation.

The 2010 IIHF World Women's U18 Championship – Division I will be held 3–9 April in Piešťany, Slovakia. They will again face France, Slovakia and Austria, as well as relegated team Switzerland, and new team Kazakhstan.[2] They lost four of the matches, but they got their first WC-win against Kazakhstan, and ended 5th in the group. Switzerland ended up with the promotion.
