About

The NGHA Competitive Program is a dynamic, skill based program, dedicated to the progressive development of the players at the highest level. The Competitive Stream philosophy is based on the teaching and development of high level individual skills and team & individual tactics. This is achieved within safe and caring team cultures where our athletes learn to push themselves and their teammates to be their very best, both on and off the ice.

The NGHA strives to foster the love of sport and competition. Our program provides an avenue for high level female athletes to embrace their love of hockey within a system of coaching that ensures progressive teaching methods that implement best practices of coaching and teaching.

Most of all we love hockey and think it should be fun for everyone involved and at all levels.

Tryouts

The NGHA Competitive Stream runs teams at multiple levels and tiers. At all levels players are evaluated through a tryout process prior to the beginning of each season, and incorporates Coach feedback to ensure that players are comprehensively evaluated and land at the level appropriate for their age and skill level.
