    By FGHA

    **Updated September 11, 2019**

    Hockey season is coming!   The first step in the season is registration and then comes the evaluation skate day and the details are below. 

    Registration: Please continue to watch the website for updates and announcements.  Registration continues to be very strong, and that has resulted in the creation of a wait list in a couple of categories already.  If you'd like to inquire about wait list status, please reach out to our registrar Kelly Sullivan (registrar@fgha.ca).

    We are still looking for players in the Novice and Atom divisions and skaters in the Bantam division and there are limited positions in Midget, so please click here to register for the season to avoid disappointment. 

    • Peewee House League - One space available - don't wait!
    • Bantam House League - Skaters needed, all goalie places full
    • Midget/Intermediate House League - Limited skater spaces available - act now!

    If you are interested in registering for any of these wait listed divisions, please reach out to our registrar Kelly Sullivan (registrar@fgha.ca). 

    We are still looking for players in the Novice and Atom divisions and skaters in the Bantam division and there are limited positions in Midget, so please click here to register for the season to avoid disappointment.

    Coaches Needed:

    There are still coaches needed for House League this coming season.

    We need coaches in IP, Novice, Atom and Peewee divisions.   

    If you have a passion for hockey and want to give back this is your chance!  We need coaches to help to guide our Falcons through the season to help them learn and grow through hockey.     

    Please click here to access the House League Coach Application Form.  Please email completed applications to both Pete Fletcher and Jason Bonneville.   

    Applicant screening will follow the OWHA Screening Policy

    If you're interested, but don't have the necessary coaching certifications, don't worry!  The FGHA will reimburse the cost of the coach certifications and trainer certifications.  If you have any questions, please reach out to either Pete Fletcher or Jason Bonneville directly. 

    FGHA Hockey School *UPDATED SEPTEMBER 5th*

    09/05/2019, 10:15am EDT
    By FGHA

    Check the updated schedule!

    **PLEASE NOTE - to help keep the on ice groups balanced, the times for the Peewee division players have changed.**  Kindly refer to the updated schedule for more information. 

    This year the FGHA is again offering our our September hockey school to all house league players. This is a great way for our girls to knock the rust off after a great summer away from the rink. 

    For only $140, skaters will receive 8 hours of on-ice instruction by Jana Harrigan of Harrigan Hockey Inc

    Jana has been running the FGHA Hockey School for 9 years and tailors the hockey school for all abilities from beginner to advanced skaters.  For our younger and first time skaters, we have additional on-ice help through older Falcons who assist those that need a little more instruction and encouragement.  The sessions will include instruction on skating, passing, shooting and of course having fun on the ice for all ages and skill levels.   

    Our experience is that newer Falcons react very well to the guidance provided by Jana and our older Falcons who are seen as role models. For the more experienced skater, Jana is also able to challenge them through the drills and encouragement providing a tailored approach to all abilities. 

    Registration for hockey school is accessed through the same site where you register for the season, click here to register now! 

    The Hockey School schedule is posted on our website, and you can find it HERE!

    ROWAN'S LAW - Action Required

    Please note that all OWHA players, as well as their parents/guardians (for players under 18), coaches, trainers and other rostered individuals MUST review the OWHA Concussion Awareness Resource annually.  Click here to access the Rowan's Law Document.   

    The content of this document MUST be read by parents and players before a player will be eligible to play any games.  Additionally, all required individuals must have signed and returned the Acknowledgement Form before they can play in a game. 

    Please take the time to review this content before the evaluation skate and return your signed acknowledgement form when signing in.  More information is available here.  Completed forms should be handed to your team's coach for collection and recording.   Once all required forms are gathered, they should be provided to the appropriate Director (House League or Rep) for retention by the FGHA. 

    Rowan’s Law was named for Rowan Stringer, a high school rugby player from Ottawa, who died in the spring of 2013 from a condition known as second impact syndrome (swelling of the brain caused by a subsequent injury that occurred before a previous injury healed). Rowan is believed to have experienced three concussions over six days while playing rugby. She had a concussion but didn’t know her brain needed time to heal. Neither did her parents, teachers or coaches.

    Rowan’s Law and Rowan’s Law Day were established to honour her memory and bring awareness to concussions and concussion safety.


    New OWHA Policy (8yrs old & under)

    The OWHA in conjunction with Hockey Canada has crafted new policy for developing hockey players at the youngest of ages.  They will be implementing the new policy attached below mostly in the 2019/2020 season. 

    Please take a moment to review the new policy if your daughter would be within this age group when this takes effect.
