Open Competitive Novice Practice and Info Session

Good day OGHA Members,

If you have a child in the OGHA in the FUNdamentals or Novice levels then you may be interested in this opportunity. Our next year's Novice B coach, Natalie Julien, will be running an on-ice introductory practice session for the 2018-2019 Novice Competitive Team. The goal is to see what levels the girls are at and to share information on what Novice Competitive is all about!

The session will be held on Wednesday March 28 from 6:00 - 7:00 at Canterbury Recreation Complex - Brian Kilrea Arena 185 Arch St, Ottawa, ON K1G

There will be no cost to participate in this session.

Please send Natalie an email at to let her know if your daughter/ward will or will not be attending. If she is attending, please include:

1. name of your daughter/ward
2. date of birth
3. level played in 2017-2018 season
4. player or goalie

Coach Natalie will provide an information package after the ice session therefore you will have an opportunity to ask her questions at that time.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Gold for Christmas!

OGHA Peewee 2 (the Ottawa Snow Devils) took home gold at the Christmas in the Valley House League tournament Dec 8-10 in Clearview. The girls worked hard through six games and pulled off three shut outs to come out on top. It was a weekend to remember for players and parents!

Pink The Rink

Another big shout-out to our Lady 67s Midget AA team for its great showing at the 8th annual Pink the Rink tournament in Etobicoke Oct 13-15.  After a slow start, the girls powered through three straight victories and finally won a close 1-0 battle with the Barrie Sharks in the finals.  Congratulations girls!
