The representative program’s mission is to support the values and objectives of the CYGHA Constitution, while providing a safe and welcoming environment that allows our exceptional female athletes to:

  • develop their skills and play at the highest level of female hockey possible
  • realize their personal, athletic and educational goals
  • compete against the top teams in the LLFHL, PWHL and the OWHA

We value character, sportsmanship, discipline, teamwork, commitment and respect.  Respect for our players, our coaches, our officials, our volunteers and respect for the great game of hockey.

The goals and objectives of our rep programs are to:

  • provide the best experience possible, both on and off the ice
  • build confident players with high self-esteem
  • teach the value of hard work and integrity
  • leverage the skills of our exceptional coaches and trainers

Our coaches will be held accountable to create an environment and culture for our student athletes to develop physically, emotionally and mentally, which will help them achieve successes in all aspects of their lives, now and into adulthood.

In support of our mission, values, goals and objectives going forward, the CYGHA is pleased to announce the following appointments for our elite teams in 2017/2018:

 

College / University Liaison : ANGELA JAMES

Angela will connect with our elite players in Junior, Midget and Bantam and develop personal relationships with them, mentor them, and help them ensure they have what they need to pursue post-secondary placements at Canadian Universities (CIS) or US colleges (subject to NCAA rules).  Angela will provide exposure to her network of female hockey contacts in Canada and the US and ensure that high performance players committed to the Panthers have a path to college/university hockey and a higher education.
