After the lunch comes the Women's OK STARS, showing that Roller Hockey can't survive without women's. Concerning the selection of women players and coaches to be prsent in Blanes, will be chosen by capitans and coaches of the teams of each conference (more details on the rules of tournament).

- Precision (shoot to specific parts of goal)
- Best Goalkeeper (shoot from different sides of the rink by 8 players)
To conclude the amazing day there will be the Match of Stars between the players of two conferences (again see all the rules of tournament).
