We urgently need your gently used equipment/sticks/skates for our Learn To Play Girls Hockey Program in the downtown core starting this fall. This program is OGHA’s way of recognizing how fortunate we are by acknowledging and doing something about making hockey more accessible to everyone in the community.
The first OGHA Learn to Play after school program will take place in partnership with York St. Public School and Ste. Anne Catholic School. The OGHA intends to set up and RUN a free after school program for girls in this area.
Tim Belanger, OGHA, VP of Hockey Operations will be setting up all on-ice coaching sessions. Please email Tim - MAIL - if you are interested in helping on the ice. Please email Kim Gibner - MAIL - if you have any equipment you would like to doante. Thank You
The OGHA is proud to welcome Kirk Defazio as head coach of this year's Novice B competitive team. Coach Defazio has had over 24 years of coaching experience includuing coaching Canadian Olympic atheletes. He is part of one of Ottawa's most famous hockey families that boasts former NHL players and a past Ottawa 67's standout.
The OGHA Novice competitive program has proven to be highly succesful over the last few years culminating in last year's provincial gold medal. We wish Coach Defazio the best of luck for the coming year. Please check the Novice B home page (by clicking on the link to the left) for an outline of Kirk's coaching philosophy.
The first Novice B tryout will be an open and free TEST THE WATER skate. This will be an opportunity for parents to assess the Novice B program as well as meet with Coach Defazio. This will take place on Saturday, August 23rd at 2:00pm (Brain Kilrea Arena)
