House League Latest News…
The start of September means that hockey season is just around the corner! Coaches will be given their rosters in the coming days, and families should expect to be contacted by their daughter’s coach by Sunday 13 September.
The 2015–16 season gets underway on Wednesday 16 September, with our first FUNDAMENTALS sessions. Players in LEARN-TO-PLAY, TYKE, NOVICE, ATOM, PEEWEE, BANTAM, and MIDGET will all take to the ice for practices and/or games the weekend of 19–20 September.
If you’ve signed up for biweekly Power Skating and Skills sessions, these begin on Wednesday 23 September for players in NOVICE and PEEWEE, and on Wednesday 30 September for players in ATOM and BANTAM.
Weekly Boot Camp sessions begin on Sunday 27 September for players in NOVICE, PEEWEE, and BANTAM, and on Wednesday 30 September for players in ATOM.
Volunteers should take note of the following key dates. There will be a mandatory pre-season meeting for all volunteers on Tuesday 15 September, 6:30–8:00pm, at Northern District Library. New this year, there will be two on-ice coaching clinics, led by Greer Harris, with tips for running your first practices: Sunday 13 September, 12:30–1:30pm; and Sunday 20 September, 6:30–7:30pm. Both sessions are at Leaside and are open to all on-ice volunteers. On Saturday 24 October, Leaside will be hosting WE ARE COACHES TOO, a day-long OWHA coaching certification clinic for women volunteers who’d like to be certified to coach—your division convenor will be sending out more information on this fantastic opportunity.
There are unfilled volunteer positions on some teams in some divisions. Parents interested in serving as coach, assistant, trainer, or manager on their daughter’s team should contact their division convenor.

Our programs include learn-to-play programs for youth and adults, an inclusive house league for players of all skill levels, supplementary skills development programs, and a competitive select program that allows players to compete against teams from other girls’ hockey associations.
