Welcome to Burlington Girls Hockey Club
The Burlington Girls Hockey Club has been offering a safe and fun place for young athletes to play hockey since 1996. We currently have over 700 girls (and growing) playing Canada's favourite sport. We offer programs for girls ages 4 to 18 at both the house league and competitive (rep) levels. We are a not for profit corporation managed by an executive board and run by hundreds of volunteers.
