Burlington Barracudas Rep Program

General Information

Welcome to the Burlington Girls Hockey Club, home of the Barracudas. Our competitive program strives to develop young athletes who have a strong desire to compete against the best female hockey players in Ontario. Over the years the BGHC has placed players on the NCAA (D1,D3) teams and CIS teams,on Team Ontarioandat the National level. This all starts with our non-competitive Timbit league and continues on to the Provincial Women’s Hockey League (Junior). In fact, the Burlington Barracudasis one of only a handful of Ontario organizations that run teams at the highest level in all age categories, from Novice through to Junior.

We want our athletes and their families to enjoy the experience, the friendships, the one on one time traveling to games, and to remember - it is only a game
