The Waterloo Girls Minor Hockey Association offers a variety of hockey programs:

House League Hockey (U11-U22):

Waterloo Ravens House League provides girls the opportunity to play hockey within the Kitchener Girls Local League (KGLL). Waterloo Ravens House League teams participate in home and away regular season and playoff games, practice times* and the Jason Cripps Memorial Tournament run by KMHA during the holiday break. All teams play in the Waterloo Cup at the end of the season. Teams may enter tournaments at their expense (2 permitted). *U22 HL does not have practice times, just games.  

House League games usually begin after the Thanksgiving weekend - you may have group practices in late September where we view all players in order to make teams as equal as possible. Please continue to watch the website for dates, however we do send out an email sometime in August with information. After the evaluation ice times, players will be placed on a team and the coach will contact you prior to when the season starts. We do not have specific days that teams will play and the days vary, with most dates being on Saturday and Sunday's as that is when we have the most ice time. Once players are placed on a team, you can subscribe to the team Calendar to see the schedule with dates of games and practices. You will then receive a schedule for the Christmas tournament "The Jason Cripps Memorial House League Tournament" which runs over the school break. In January, the teams are placed in pools for the second half and the top 4 teams in each pool will qualify for the playoffs which start after March Break. The season concludes with the Waterloo Cup, a Ravens tournament day usually the first Sunday of April. 

Development Stream (DS):
 
DS is a program offered to HL players only. There is no registration until November as teams may not be formed until November and cannot play games or practice until December 1st. One DS team is formed from all the HL players that tryout at U11, U13, U15 and U18. DS teams may play in 8 exhibition games (maximum), 14 practices (maximum), and 2 DS only tournaments except for U11 DS which is not permitted to play in tournaments. The DS fee is a team fee paid by those making the team and covers 10 hours of ice time, 4 home Ex games, and admin fees. All tournament or additional fees are budgeted by the teams. 

Representative Level Hockey:

Waterloo Ravens Representative Level (AA, A, BB, B and C) Programs provide players competitive hockey play within the OWHA and affiliated leagues. This level of play requires additional commitment in the form of tryout, rep and team fees, travel, and time. Rep teams will have regular season and playoff schedules and may participate in OWHA sanctioned tournaments.


U8/U9 and Fundamentals Hockey:

U8 and U9 House League Program:  

The Waterloo Ravens U8 and U9 Half-ice Program is designed to teach players the physical literacy, fitness, and basic skills required of the game. All games are half-ice with the emphasis on developing player skills essential for hockey in a fun, fair-play environment! U9 players may transition to full-ice games after January 15th. This program follows the LPTD (Long-Term Player Development) model implemented by Hockey Canada. No scores are kept, positions are rotated, no playoffs or elimination style tournaments are permitted. The U8 program is offered to girls 7 years of age, and the U9 program is offered to girls 8 years of age. 


U9 Rep Program:

The Ravens U9 Rep team is a higher level of play and a larger commitment (more ice times) but the same rules apply as mentioned in the U9 HL section. There are additional costs for this program. Note: 4 ice times are required before any tryouts can begin. All U9 registrants will partake in 4 practices prior to tryouts. 


 

Learn to Skate Program:  Preference given to City of Waterloo Residents
The Learn to Skate program is a 14-week program designed to teach girls how to skate in order to play hockey. This Learn to Skate program is for girls aged 4 - 6. The program cost includes hockey equipment (not skates) as well as a stick and bag! Numbers are limited so register early.

WGMHA endeavors to run this program on the same day of the week for the entire season, however schedules may change due to circumstances beyond our control.

Rookie Ravens Program:  Preference given to City of Waterloo Residents

The Ravens Rookie Program is a 16-week designed to teach players the fundamentals of the game. The program is non-competitive and the emphasis is on FUN! This program is offered to girls 5 - 7 years of age looking for a more affordable and less competitive alternative to U8 Half Ice.

WGMHA endeavors to run this program on the same day of the week for the entire season, however schedules may change due to circumstances beyond our control.

Rookie Ravens Plus Program:  Preference given to City of Waterloo Residents

The Rookie Ravens Plus Program is a 16 week program for those players wanting more ice time compared to the Rookie Ravens Program (approximately twice as many ice times) and is also designed to teach players the fundamentals of the game. The program is non-competitive and the emphasis is on FUN! The program is offered to girls 6 - 7 years of age looking for a more affordable and less competitive alternative to U8 Half Ice.

WGMHA endeavors to run this program on the same days of the week for the entire season, however schedules may change due to circumstances beyond our control.

Please note that due to Covid-19, the structure of the 2022-2023 season may differ from what is outlined above.

COVID-19 Vaccination


Currently, WGMHA is strongly encouraging all players and coaching staff to be fully vaccinated (refer to WGMHA Vaccination Policy), however should Public Health, OWHA, Hockey Canada, Government of Ontario, or Government of Canada directions change with respect to COVID-19 vaccinations, players and coaching staff who are not fully vaccinated may not be able to continue in our programs. Every attempt will be made to communicate changes in our policy as soon as possible.
