As planning continues for the 2020-2021 season, the FGHA Board of Directors wants to remind all of our members that financial constraints shouldn't be a barrier to participation in hockey. As hockey begins to resume across Canada, a number of foundations are offering assistance and their grant process is open now. The Lace'Em Up and the Grindstone Award are two of these accepting applications now. Please note, applications are limited by either time or funding levels, so apply now!

The health, safety and well-being of players, families, coaches, officials, volunteers and members of our community remains our priority during this difficult time. Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent directives by various authorities, the Flamborough Girls Hockey Association has suspended all in-person association and team activities until such time as the appropriate authorities and/or our governing sport associations suggest we can resume our operations.
We will advise our membership on our programming resumption and plans as soon as the situation becomes more clear. At this time we are NOT opening registration for the 2020/2021 season, assigning players to rep teams or posting House League coaching applications due to the uncertainty of what hockey will look like in fall. We are in communications with Hockey Canada and OWHA and will update our membership as information becomes available. We are planning to hold our AGM for the 2019/2020 season in early Fall pending further developments.

We thank you, our members, for your patience at this time and sincerely hope you and your families remain in good health!
