The HGHA is a proud member of the OWHA
Hamilton Girls Hockey Association (HGHA) continues to work with its governing body (OWHA) and neighbouring associations in an effort to develop a return to hockey program that meets the needs of its players, coaches and parents.
Following the Return to Play safety protocols, there will not be try-outs at this time. The first 4 weeks of hockey will be skills and development ice.
On-ice activities will include conditioning, skills development and some controlled scrimmaging.
Physical distancing must be maintained in all drills and scrimmages.
Following the development phase, there will be modified 3-on-3 or 4-on-4.
Modified game play with No Physical Contact and OWHA rules for modified game play may begin at a time yet to be determined.
This session will run from January to March and will either be a continuation of the development format of session one, or a transition to a more traditional program, if permitted under regulations set out by the province, the city and the OWHA.
Given the uncertainty of the pandemic and the evolving situation, more information on the second session will be communicated later this fall. A separate registration and fee structure will be implemented according to guidelines in place at that time.
For information on the safe return to hockey, please the documents below provided by the OWHA
OWHA Return to Hockey:
Effective immediately, it is mandatory, as a condition of eligibility to participate in any OWHA-sanctioned activity, that everyone born in 2009 and earlier must be fully vaccinated (2 shots plus 14 days) as soon as possible and by no later than November 1, 2021. This includes all players, staff and volunteers, including coaches, trainers and officials. The only exemption from this requirement is for two specific medical reasons. The full policy reflecting these rules will be posted shortly on OWHA’s website
If you wish to register for the 2022-2023 season, each player/family will be required to create a profile on the OWHA’s new registration platform RAMP. This new platform will allow for a more streamlined and efficient approach to signing waivers and expediting the registration process. Although we will NOT be collecting fees at this time, all players must complete a profile with RAMP in order to be registered for the 2022/23 season.
Please register your player's intended level of play at either House League or Rep using the link below.

The Hamilton Girls Hockey Association offers divisions ranging from Pre-Novice age 5 years old right up to Intermediate age 21 years old. Our association is split into two categories. House League and Rep (or competitive). Our house league divisions play various centers in the surrounding Hamilton area, such as Stoney Creek, Ancaster, Flamborough, and is a great way for female athletes to learn about team play and most importantly fun. All leagues in Ontario are governed by the Ontario Women's Hockey Association.
Our rep system is a travel league that competes in the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League.
