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.
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.
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. 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.
