Does your daughter aspire to be the next Hayley Wickenheiser or Cassie Campbell? Help support her dreams by signing her up with the Stoney Creek Girls Hockey Association (SCGHA).
We offer Hockey Canada’s FUNdamentals program. This program provides basic hockey skills instruction to girls aged three to six years. It is designed to make the beginners first impression of hockey a positive one. The emphasis is on progressive skill development and fun. Players are grouped according to skill level and work through the program’s lessons, activities, and games.
If a beginner has FUN, develops some basic skills, and builds confidence, there is a good chance that she will go on to enjoy hockey for many years. But if a beginner has an unhappy experience, the chances are that she will quit at an early age and never discover the real joy of Canada’s great game.
The objectives of the FUNdamentals program are to:
-Introduce children to a fun physical activity
-Teach the fundamental skills of hockey
-Help children acquire an understanding of co-operation and team play
-Introduce children to the concepts of team play
-Help children develop self-confidence.
We also offer house league and competitive hockey in different divisions. Our house league divisions include Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam, and Midget/Intermediate. Our competitive hockey divisions include Junior, Intermediate A, Midget AA, Midget A, Midget BB, Atom, Bantam, and Peewee.
Finally, our Stoney Creek Women’s Hockey League provides hockey playing and learning opportunities for women, from beginners to skilled, in a safe, supportive, friendly, and fun environment. This division is available to players over the age of 20 with no standings or stats kept.
The SCGHA’s programs and leagues are offered at many arenas around the Hamilton area, including the Gateway Ice Centre in Stoney Creek. Visit the association website and the Gateway site for more information.
