    2019-2020 Coaching Announcements

    Updated March 3rd, 2019.


    Bantam A Announcement 2019-20

    The CYGHA is thrilled to have two highly experienced non-parent coaches to run the two Bantam A programs for the 2019-2020 season.  Both programs will follow our High Performance model and will focus on player development to try and give every player on both teams the opportunity to succeed at the highest level in future years. 

    From a team selection perspective, 'Bantam A Red - John Stolys' will select the first team and 'Bantam A Blue - John Morning' will select the second team.  The coaches will collaborate to determine the selections that best fit their overall team goals.  Given the depth of our current Bantam A and Peewee AA programs, we expect both teams to be very competitive.

    Stay tuned for more information regarding tryout dates and formats.

    CYGHA Awarded the Jean Lane Award

    By Admin 02/14/2019, 10:45am EST

    The Central York Girls Hockey Association has been awarded the Jean Lane Award.  The Award recognizes those organizations who have gone above and beyond in their support of Women's Sledge Hockey of Canada. Jean Lane, from Medicine Hat, Alberta, created SHIP (Sledge Hockey and Ice Picking), which was the group of individuals that brought Sledge Hockey to the rest of Canada.

    Katie Williams and Bruce Bennett, of the CYGHA, brought Canadian Women's Sledge Hockey to our Panther Pride Tournament.  The Canadian Women’s Sledge Hockey Association promotes and supports an inclusive environment for Canadian girls and women with disabilities to participate in sledge hockey at all levels of development from initiation to an elite level by facilitating annual women's only events and opportunities.

    In 2015, Ontario and Quebec Provincial Women’s Sledge Hockey Teams played each other in a three game series, as part of our Panther Pride House League Tournament. In 2016, these 2 teams returned to Newmarket for another three game series. During the tournament, National Team players hosted a Sledge “Try It” event.  Many House League players were able to try sledge hockey for, the first time, and were amazed at the skill involved.

    In early 2017, the Women’s National Sledge Hockey team held their Team Canada selection camp in Newmarket. The CYGHA provided evaluators and a referee to help with their selections.

    During the 2017 Panther Pride Tournament, the CYGHA hosted the FIRST ever Canadian Women’s Sledge Hockey Championship.  This incredible milestone marked the first time a National Championship for Women’s sledge hockey was held any where in the world!  Ontario, Quebec and Western Canada were represented, competing over 3 days. The winner was team Ontario.

    Congratulations to Katie, Bruce and the CYGHA!

    Novice Programming 2019-20

    By Admin 01/10/2019, 8:45am EST

    Planning has begun for the 2019-20 hockey season.   Hockey Canada and the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association, have set new guidelines for Novice programming which will begin next season.  All Sanctioned Hockey Associations, both Girls and Boys, must follow these guidelines.

    The OWHA has provided information on their website, that will give parents and coaches an overview of the program.  Here is the link:

    If you select the “Programs” option from the main menu, you will see there is information for parents, coaches, associations, a seasonal structure, game play guidelines and rules.

    The CYGHA  plan for next season is to offer 2 programs for the 7/8 age group:

    • Tyke (age 7) half ice program
    • Novice (age 8) half ice – transition to full ice program

    These programs are fully dependant on our registration numbers.  If there are not enough players to have a Tyke and Novice program, we will combine the 2 age groups and run a Novice half ice  program (the guidelines state that 7 year olds are not “allowed” to play full ice, therefore if combined with 8 year olds, all must play half ice for the season).

    At this time, the OWHA has not provided any information on Novice “Rep” or “DS” programs.  We will post this information as soon as we receive it.


    Carlo graduated from the University of Windsor with an Honours Bachelor Degree in Human Kinetics before obtaining his Doctorate of Chiropractic from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. He is a certified first responder through the Canadian Red Cross and has obtained his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) title.
