The A and B European women's hockey championships took place approximately every two years, between 1989 and 1996. The A European Championship served as a qualifier for the World Championship. The winner of the B European Championship moved up to the A European Championship, and the loser of the A European Championship moved down to the B European Championship, after each competition.
Starting in the spring of 1998, the European Championships have been replaced with an A Pool and B Pool for the World Championships. There was a pre-qualification and a qualification tournament to determine which teams would compete in each of these two pools initially.
As of 2004, there is now a European Women Championship Cup, to determine the best club team in Europe.
