History (BLOMHA)

The Burlington Lions Optimist Minor Hockey Association (BLOMHA) was formed in 1951 by members of the Burlington Central Lions Club and the Optimist Club of Burlington, making it one of the oldest, longest serving youth organizations in our city. For several years members of both clubs were actively involved in the operation of the organization. BLOMHA is governed by Hockey Canada, Ontario Hockey Federation and Alliance Hockey. We are a not for profit, non-share corporation, which has been incorporated pursuant to and governed by the Corporation Act of the Province of Ontario.

We are a volunteer based organization with 1800 players registered making us also the largest minor hockey association in our city. Our aims and objectives are to foster, promote and teach amateur hockey within the City of Burlington and to provide the maximum opportunity for all eligible individuals to participate regardless of their ability.

We have approx 500 volunteers registered to assist in the running of our programs, which include the operation of about 135 teams. All coaches, team trainers and other volunteers are fully qualified, accredited and insured, in keeping with the guidelines issued by governing bodies of minor hockey in Canada. Our office is staffed by full time employees.

A key goal of BLOMHA is to provide programs that develop each player to his or her full potential, subject to talent, ability and personal enjoyment of the game. Hockey is a competitive game therefore we are organized into three progressively competitive levels as well as a recreational or house-league stream.
