REGISTRATION FEES

The Board of Directors are trying to keep fees as low as possible for Return to Hockey and are hoping to communicate amounts shortly.

Due to the uncertainty pertaining to provincial and municipal Covid-19 restriction changes, the BGHC is only accepting credit card payments for all registrations. This will allow us to issue refunds in an expedited manner in the event Return to Hockey ends prematurely. Payments will be made through the RAMP registration system.

In the event Return to Hockey ends prematurely, the Board of Directors will evaluate and approve appropriate refunds for both House League and Representative. Costs incurred by the organization up to the cancellation of Return to Hockey will be taken into consideration when determining refund amounts.

Payment timing:

  • House League - Upon Registration
  • Representative - First Payment Upon Registration, Second Payment Due by October 31st
  • The RAMP registration system allows for automated split credit card payments

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

All REP teams participate in the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League (LLFHL), playing a 22-game season from early October through end of January, followed by playoffs and provincial play downs. Team will also participate in up to 6 tournaments per season, generally at least one of which involves an out-of-town hotel stay.
