The Swedish women's national ice hockey team or Damkronorna ("the Lady Crowns" in Swedish) is controlled by Svenska Ishockeyförbundet. The Swedish team had traditionally been the fourth-best women's team in the world, behind Canada, USA and Finland. However, the team has shown steady improvement since 2001, winning bronze medals at the 2002 Winter Olympics, the 2005 Women's World Ice Hockey Championships, and the 2007 Women's World Ice Hockey Championships, and a silver medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics.

Sweden has 2,888 female players (2005). The head coach is Niclas Högberg, who was hired on March 4, 2010.[1]
