Celebrating 25 Years!
This season marks the 25th Anniversary of the Oakville Hornets Girls Hockey Association, a member of the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association, is one of the largest girls’ only hockey clubs in the world. Girls’ hockey is also one of the fastest growing sports in the world; our mission is to develop and foster this growth at the community level.

Our structured hockey program provides girls a chance to learn and play hockey in a fun environment with an opportunity to make new friends and engage in a team sport.

 

“It is very exciting to be working with the OWHA in growing girls’ hockey today. It is important to us that we continue to provide these girls with opportunities to help develop their skill and grow the sport of girls’ hockey but most of all to have fun.”

 

Mike Turczyniak

President, Oakville Girls Hockey Association

 

The Hornets program includes non-competitive house leagues, competitive level teams and a team in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League (Junior). The Hornets are one of the few Ontario organizations that fields teams at the highest level in all age categories, from U7 through to U22. Hornets players have moved on to NCAA, Canadian University sports teams, Team Ontario and Team Canada.


The OHGHA’s success is attributed to its hundreds of Volunteers who ensure that the organization runs smoothly. In addition to managing daily operations, our Volunteers run three annual tournaments, Best of the Nest and Harvest Classic, our two Rep Tournaments and Survive the Hive our House League Tournament, which attract thousands of hockey players and their families from all over Ontario, Quebec and the United States to Oakville.

 

We look forward to celebrating our 25th anniversary with our past and present members with events throughout the season including an open skate, dinner/dance and lots more. Stay tuned for more information on these events and more.
