Skating Treadmill

New this year, the NGHA has partnered with NextGeneration Hockey to provide all our teams with access to skating treadmill sessions. Next Generation Hockey has 2 locations - Iber Road in the CHDC building and the TMSI dome at Greenbank and Hunt Club.

The NGHA will be scheduling teams out for these sessions, the rate is the same as our blended hourly rate for an hour of ice but these sessions will be 2 hrs and 15 min and will provide all 15 skaters with a 45 min group session (5 skaters per group) on the treadmill.

The 2 facilities are ready to start taking teams and if you want to start sooner please let me know and we will get you scheduled ASAP. We will work with Next Generation to accommodate all your needs and will make as many sessions available to teams as they want for the upcoming season.

These sessions are open to all NGHA teams - Competitive, House, and the upcoming DS teams.

Please book early to give your team the competitive advantage you want for the upcoming season.

Have fun and please let us know if you have any questions.

3rd Annual Wildcats Season Kickoff Dance

The Nepean Junior Wildcats would like to invite you to the 3rd Annual Wildcats Season Kickoff Dance which will take place on Friday, October 23rd at Sir Robert Borden High School, from 6-10pm.

Last year over 350 girls and parents enjoyed the event with $500 being raised for the NGHA bursary fund.

We're back with the music of a professional DJ, bake and pizza sale, a photo booth, nail and face painting, door prizes and more!

The evening is a great opportunity for everyone to celebrate, kick off the season and bond with team mates and friends. The event is fully chaperoned so parents don't have to stay. It's a great opportunity for the parents to have their own icebreaker party! Younger siblings and non-hockey playing girls are also welcome. Please share this email with parents on your team.

This year tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Stay tuned as we will soon be forwarding information regarding how to pre-purchase your tickets. Mark off October 23rd on your calendar for what will surely be loads of fun and a great way for the NGHA community to better get to know one another!


Registration is available for all players.

NGHA Goalie Program

All group notifications have gone out. If you have not received your group allocation the please contact Greg Bowles ASAP.

The NGHA is pleased to announce the return of the weekly goalie development training program for the 2015-2016 season. The goal of the program is to further develop the key fundamentals of the modern goalie position while breaking down each repetition into pre-save, save, and post-save movements. Each goalie will be registered for at least 10x 1-hour clinics beginning around 16 September 2015 and running until 24 February 2016 such that they are on the ice approximately once every two weeks.

This year we will be offering three different training streams:

1) EXPOSURE TRAINING GROUP: The EXPOSURE LEVEL is open to Novice (All) and Atom House League goalies/teams only. For teams without a designated goalie, coaches or a team representative can purchase a "Team Package" wherein targeted players can be rotated through the sessions at the discretion of the team. Please make note of this within the comments section of the online registration.
Total Cost: $185 (+HST) per goalie

SOLD OUT Please send an email to be added to a waiting list.

2) REGULAR TRAINING GROUP: The REGULAR LEVEL is open to all remaining goalies who are NOT competing at the Novice (All) or Atom House League level. This is a substantially large group requiring registrants to be separated into two Groups that will train on alternating weeks.
Total Cost: $235 (+HST) per goalie

SOLD OUT Please send an email to be added to a waiting list.

3) ELITE TRAINING GROUP: The ELITE LEVEL will be initially offered to AA athletes and then subsequently extended to A-level athletes bases on availability. This group will train every week for a total of 20 sessions and is a perfect complement for a team looking for a steady dose of goaltending instruction.
Total Cost: $460 (+HST) per goalie

SOLD OUT Please send an email to be added to a waiting list.

Each group will be further divided into subgroups based on age and level of play at the discretion of the instructor to best suit the needs of each individual and the dynamics of the overall program. All sessions will be provided by Complete Goaltending Development and will be held at the Complete Hockey Development Centre (CHDC) located at 145 Iber Road. Specific group assignments and any related information will be formally communicated to each individual NO LATER THAN Monday, 14 September 2015.

Please do not hesitate to contact Greg Bowles with any comments, question or concerns at
