    Would you like to see your team in a film about Hockey in Canada?

    Hockey 24 is a documentary about community hockey in Canada, all filmed on a single day.  This video gives an idea of what it's all about.

    On Sunday, November 17th, Scotiabank is asking Canadians to join our award-winning filmmakers in filming their day in community hockey, both on and off the ice. Once the footage is collected, they will use it all to create a unique snapshot of life in Canada.

    This is an amazing opportunity to share your unique experience with community hockey and be a part of the legacy of hockey in our country. The film will be released in the Spring of 2020, and you just might see yourself on TV, online, and on the big screen.

    You could also win up to $24,000 for your local community hockey team or league, and a trip to the 2020 Honda NHL® All-Star Game.


    2019-20 DS (Development Stream) Tryouts

    This year, the FGHA will be offering the Development Stream (DS) program in the Atom, Peewee and Bantam House League (HL) divisions.

    DS gives House League players the opportunity to play extra hockey with both games and tournaments. This can serve for some individuals as a way to get a taste for rep hockey, and for others it adds that little extra ice time and travel to fulfill their hockey dream. All HL players are invited and encouraged to try out for the DS team in their registered division. With the short season, your DS Coach will be looking for your commitment to make every effort to participate in games, tournaments and practices. For more information on DS, please click here

    Tryouts are happening November 11 at 7pm (Atom) and 8pm (Peewee).  Please click here to register for the DS tryout for your division.  

    Finally, we need your help.  All of our programs run with volunteers and we are looking for coaches for the Atom and Peewee DS teams.  Without coaches, the program can't run!   If you have questions or are able to help out please contact Pete Fletcher and Sean Andrus right away. (Don't worry though, the board will work with you to help get these teams up and running!)

    Here's everything you need to know about photo day!

    2019-20 FGHA Picture day is coming on Sunday November 17th with some Rep teams also getting photos on Tuesday November 19th! Photos will take place at Harry Howell in the community room and the time slots for each team are below. 

    What you need to know:

    1) Skate guards - there will be seating near the room for skates to be tied, but if your daughter wants to wear them from the change room, she will need skate guards.

    2) The FGHA pays for a team photo and a photo of your player. All other prints and packages will be available for you to purchase. Forms will be available at the rink on photo day so that you can order your prints.

    3) Times are scheduled to allow 15-20 minutes per team, and in order to accommodate all the teams and keep on schedule, please ensure your daughter is ready to go for the appointed time.

    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.
