The Brantford Girls Hockey Association provides the application portal to members of the Ice Cats family for their post-secondary education.  Kevin Finney was an avid BGHA Hockey Dad of two active Ice Cats.  He passed away suddenly in 2022.  In honor of his memory, his family has created a Post-secondary School Bursary in his honor.

Awarded annually at the Brantford Sports Council Banquet, the goal of the program is to reward and recognize outstanding individuals who excel in the classroom, on the ice, in the community and exhibit qualities of leadership and commitment within the BGHA organization.
