General Info (Oakville Hornets)

PrintGeneral Info
Our competitive program strives to develop young athletes who have a strong desire to compete against the best female hockey players in Ontario. Over the years the Hornets have placed players on NCAA (D1,D3) and U Sports teams, on Team Ontario and at the National level. This all starts with our non-competitive house league program and continues on to the Provincial Women’s Hockey League (Junior). The Hornets are one of only a handful of Ontario organisations that run teams at the highest level in all age categories, from Novice through to Junior.

The rep program is divided into different levels per age group. In a typical year we ice between 18 to 24 teams, e.g.:
Novice  A/B
Atom  AA/A/BB/B
Peewee  AA/A/BB/B
Bantam  AA/A/BB/B
Midget  AA/A/BB/B

Please note that Peewee AA, Bantam AA and Midget AA - together with our Junior Hornets - are operated as part of our High Performance Program (click for more information).

Information for families considering rep hockey

The rep program process commences in April each year with tryouts held for teams for the following season. The dates of tryouts vary from year-to-year. Generally all members receive an email in early to mid March announcing the tryout process and directing them to registration.

Details of the anticipated teams and the appointed coaches for those teams will start to be posted from December through late February. Parents are encouraged to speak with coaches and ask questions.

Time Commitment: The main season runs September through early April.  Depending on the team, families can expect 2 practices and 2 games per week at a minimum. Many teams add conditioning training and additional on-ice extra skill development practices. All rep teams participate in the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League (LLFHL), playing a 22-game season from early October through end of January, followed by playoffs and provincial Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA) play downs. Teams will also participate in up to 6 tournaments per season, generally at least one of which involves an out-of-town hotel stay.

Fees:  Fees have ranged from about $2,500 + personal expenses at the Novice age group to $4,000 + personal expenses at the older age groups and higher levels.

More specific information will be received from the team coach at the start of the tryout process.
