The CGHA is Clarington's only all-girls hockey organization, and we have been sharing our passion for the game since 1990. Our vision is to be a leader in girls' hockey by developing future leaders through hard work, fair play, and fun. We are proud to offer competitive hockey; each year, teams are selected through tryouts and compete throughout Ontario. The CGHA reserves the right to determine the number of teams and their levels for the upcoming season based on the number of registered players who are skilled enough to compete at the appropriate level. The CGHA does not currently have a senior program, but hopes to in the future.
Teams from U9 to U22 and can be categorized as follows:
- By level, in ascending order: AA, A, BB, B, and C
- By age, in order: U9, U11, U13, U15, U18, U22, and Senior
Our league is represented annually by nearly 20 teams at varying levels and ages. According to the Ontario Women's Hockey Association's regulations, each age category is comprised of both a minor and a major age group.
This means that teams consist of players from two different age groups. A U13 team, for instance, consists of players aged 11 and 12. U18 teams consist of three age categories ranging from 15 to 17 years old.
The CGHA Selection Committee conducts interviews with prospective coaches in November/December for the next season. Coaches choose players for their teams at tryouts held in April after the conclusion of the season. Coaches choose their own coaching staff and create their own budgets and season plans. Each year, teams participate from September through April, with a possible summer Development component.
