House League


The NGHA house league program begins in September and concludes in early March with a tournament-style playoff weekend.

The Nepean Wildcats and Kanata Rangers house league programs are joining forces! This format will include a continuation of great gameplay in Wildcats house league, and starting in November, games will also be played against KGHA teams.

Our house league program provides an opportunity for girls to develop their hockey skills and grow their love of the game with an emphasis on having fun. Girls learn valuable life skills including sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork and respect.

Teams are balanced with players of all abilities within their designated age divisions following a sort out process, which takes place in early September. For this reason, we do not take friend requests.

House league players can expect to be on the ice twice a week, for 50 minutes each time. Practices are usually scheduled on Saturdays, with games on Sundays. The majority of practices and games take place at Minto Recreation Complex in Barrhaven, Nepean Sportsplex, and at Carleton University.

Teams also typically play in three tournaments over the course of the season, usually with one being an out-of-town tournament.



In addition to the registration fee, there are team fees which cover the cost of tournament registration fees, goalie training, and other team expenses. Team fees typically range from $250 to $400 per player and some teams also choose to do fundraising.

A team budget will be provided to families and a budget vote will occur at a parent meeting near the start of the season.


House League Goalie Incentive

The NGHA's House League Goalie incentive is back for the 2023-2024 season!

In order to encourage and support goalie development at the House League level, the NGHA is offering a 50% rebate of house league registration fees to house players at the U11, U13, U15 and U18 levels who commit to playing the position full time for the 2023-2024 season.

In addition, house league players at the U11, U13, U15 and U18 levels who are interested in playing goalie part time may also be eligible to receive a 25% rebate of house league registration fees. To qualify, players must play the position for a minimum of 9 games (regular season games, including championship weekend) and a minimum of 3 tournament games.

The rebate, if applicable, will be offered in the form of a credit towards the 2024-2025 season. U18 goalies who are aging out of the program will be offered a rebate in the form of a refund following the conclusion of the 2023-2024 season.

Please note at U9, players will rotate through all positions including goalie as recommended by Hockey Canada.

Any questions about the goalie rebate can be directed towards the House League Directors at OR
