Nepean Girls Hockey Association
In order to adjust to an organization's changing needs and to ensure alignment with its mission and goals, policies should be regularly reviewed for relevancy and accuracy. The NGHA'a policies embody the beliefs, commitments, values and vision of the NGHA. As such, the NGHA Board of Directors is currently reviewing all of its standing policies as well as creating new needed policies to continue to promote, develop and provide opportunities of the highest quality for girls to play female hockey in Nepean. The first four policies (affiliation, team finances, financial assistance, social networking) have been created/updated and approved by the Board. They can be found under the "About Us" tab, Policies.
