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.
For members arriving on our new website, you will find familiar sections so you can easily navigate to your favourites pages and also new functions and capabilities with more to come.
Any feedback on our new site can be directed here.
