House League


The NGHA runs an internal house league program that begins in September and concludes in early March with a tournament-style playoff weekend.

Our house league program provides an opportunity for girls to develop their hockey skills and grow their love of the game with an emphasis on having fun. Girls learn valuable life skills including sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork and respect.

Teams are balanced with players of all abilities within their designated age divisions following a sort out process, which takes place in early September. For this reason, we do not take friend requests.

House league players can expect to be on the ice twice a week, for 50 minutes each time. Practices are usually scheduled on Saturdays, with games on Sundays. The majority of practices and games take place at Minto Recreation Complex in Barrhaven, Nepean Sportsplex, and at Carleton University.

Teams also typically play in three tournaments over the course of the season, usually with one being an out-of-town tournament.


In addition to the registration fee, there are team fees which cover the cost of tournament registration fees, goalie training, and other team expenses.

Team fees typically range from $250 to $350 per player.

Some teams also choose to do fundraising in addition to collecting team fees.

A team budget will be provided to families and a budget vote will occur at a parent meeting near the start of the season.
