Registration for the 2020-21 Season is now open.  At this time the registration is a declaration of an "intent to play".  There is no cost to register your intent.  All players wishing to be play at a competitive level must register their intent by September 10.

The fees and season details will updated once we receive communications from the OWHA and the Town of Whitby.  

The Whitby Wolves Executive has been working hard to prepare the upcoming season amid the ever-changing COVID-19 regulations and protocols.  We thank you for your patience.

The health and safety of our players, staff and families is our primary focus and these measures are aligned with protocols provided by the Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA) and the Province of Ontario Public Health Agency.

The WGHA executive aims to operate this season as "normal" as possible, but due to the current and evolving Covid 19 situation, we may need to make changes as required to adhere to Public Health and OWHA guidelines. Any changes that are needed will be communicated as soon as possible. 

A player who registers with the OWHA (which the WGHA is part of) is not eligible for registration or participation in other minor or junior hockey (Alliance, GTHL, HEO, HNO, NOHA, OHA, OHL, OMHA)




Registration Information

 
This season, all OWHA teams are required to register using a new platform (RAMP). Since RAMP will be replacing our previous system, all participants will have to create an account, unless they already have an account with RAMP through another sports organization. 

Also, if this is your first time registering with the Whitby Girls Hockey Association, please upload a copy of the player’s birth certificate.

2020/2021 Season Structure & Registration 

Season Overview

  • The 2020-21 will be structured in accordance with the OWHA Return to Play Stage 3 Modified Programming document.  
  • Players will be grouped together based on their level of play last year (HL or Rep) and by their appropriate level of play for the 2020/2021 season.  The WGHA may adjust this based on the need to round out numbers in a group.
  • The ice allotment and times (HL and rep) will be similar to last year and will be at McKinney Arena or Iroquois Sports Complex. 
  • There will be a minimum two weeks of developmental skates at the start of all House League and Competitive programs before moving into modified game play with no physical contact subject to OWHA and the Durham Public Health Unit requirements.
  • All activities will be physically distanced with coaches following the Alternate Skill Instruction guidelines provided by Hockey Canada.
  • Modified hockey may include 3v3 or 4v4. The rules and permission to begin modified game play may begin at a time yet to be determined by the OWHA. 


House league Program:

  • House league teams will have a maximum of 12 players. 
  • We anticipate our House League Division will commence October 3, 2020 to allow players to formally register and allow our convenors to sort the players into appropriately balanced teams. 
  • Players will be placed on a balanced team within their age group. These teams will play in an extended group of up to 50 players. A couple of divisions may have two groups of 50 and the players within a defined extended group of 50 will play and practice together without interaction with any other extended group of 50. Players will be placed on teams based on their known abilities.
  • Players within a defined extended group may be moved to different teams during developmental skates to ensure teams are balanced.
  • A player in an OWHA group may not be part of any other hockey participant group in Ontario.

Competitive Program:

  • The coaches of our Competitive teams have been  announced earlier this year. Additional coaches will be updated soon. See 2020-21 Representative teams and coaches.
  • The number Competitive teams may be subject to change based on the number of players and their abilities in each division.
  • As per the OWHA, there will be no tryouts for competitive teams. Player placement for each team will be decided by the representative coaches for each level and team. Once the placements have been determined, the rosters will be vetted by the WGHA Roster Selection Committee and approved by WGHA Executive. 
  • Rep Teams will be placed within an extended group of 50 in consultation with the head coach of the team.  The extended group of 50 may consist of WGHA Players only or with a team from another OWHA member association within or out of the Durham Region Public Health Unit boundary.  The head coach will communicate their intentions in this matter to the selected players.
  • Players will be notified of their team placement by the head coach and the players will have 48 hours to accept or decline. Those who do not receive a placement or decline, are invited to join the house league program for their age group.
  • The goal of the OWHA is to get our players back to traditional 5 on 5 hockey and if the governing bodies permit transition to traditional hockey formal tryouts may occur at that time.
  • All plans for 2020-2021 are contingent on final approval from the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association within the requirements of the local Public Health Unit and\or facility rules.
  • A player in an OWHA group may not be part of any other hockey participant group in Ontario.
