What will be special about next season (2024-2025)?
Next season, the Brantford Girls Hockey Association will be celebrating their 50th year in operation!  

Girls’ hockey in Brantford originated in 1974 when registration was opened to girls age 7 – 18.  49 girls paid their $15.00 annual fee (50 cents per practice and Brantford had a girls hockey league!  The league began with 3 hours of ice time per week.

Mayor Charles Bowen dropped the puck at the first game on September 21, 1974.


The Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA) was formed in 1975.


In 1982, the ‘Female Council’ of the CHA was formed.  This year also saw the OWHA and Brantford WHA host the first women’s National Championship.  This was the first year of the now Walter Gretzky Tournament.


The BGHA is also one of the founding members of the Brantford Sports Council.
