Information

The BGHC provides the opportunity for House League players to develop at a higher level via the Development Stream (DS) program. These are teams of selected players from the house league program that demonstrate skill and desire to compete at a higher level of play and is ideal for players who:


  1. Are looking for a development bridge to competitive hockey or
  2. Do not wish to make the commitment, in time or cost, to competitive hockey but are seeking more competition and skill development that is afforded by house league alone.


The DS teams will practice, play exhibition games and enter tournaments outside of their normal House League team. The DS program runs concurrently with and cannot interfere with the player’s current house league team.


The BGHC will ice teams at Novice, Atom, Peewee and Bantam assuming that numbers/talent level permit.  The program will run regularly at Burlington ice pads, generally on Sundays.  DS cannot interfere with house league programming, so there may be weeks with no DS ice time if ice is not available.

Should your player make the team, the fee for a full-time player on a DS team will be $500 - $550.  A lower price for AP players is set annually.  Fees include:

  • entry into 3 tournaments
  • Referee, timekeeper and ice costs for four HOME games
  • name bars on jerseys
  • regular ice time between mid November and the week immediately preceding the final DS tournament of the season (generally the Easter weekend), excluding holiday weekends (Christmas and New Years, Family Day, March Break) and excluding House League Championship weekend.


DS teams are selected by an independent committee and includes the Head Coach.  Head coaches for the 2017-2018 DS teams are as follows:

-       Novice 1 – Craig Valiquette

-       Novice 2 – Sam Menard

-       Atom – Brian Hamil

-       Peewee – Heather Michlik

-       Bantam – Jamie Barron

-       Midget - TBD
