What kind of Hockey does BLOMHA offer? And what are the different programs?

Non Competitive Hockey Program - House League:

The foundation of our membership has always been our House League program. BLOMHA offers a FUN and exciting House League program for boys and girls ages 4-18. These programs are community run and operate on the principals of good sportsmanship, discipline, team work and the fair treatment of others under all circumstances and all conditions. In existence since 1951 BLOMHA has seen many of Burlington's youth graduate to enjoy healthy and happy lifestyles through the lessons they learned while with BLOMHA. Many return as volunteers to work with the next generation of our youth.  

BLOMHA is also the proud host of the Annual House League Tournament during March Break. This tournament attracts teams from across Ontario. The year 2018 did mark the 39th year of our popular House League Tournament.

We also run a program for 4/5/6 and 7 year olds. These players learn the game of hockey in a fun and safe environment. No scores are kept and the emphasis is on having fun while improving hockey skills. This program is called the Initiation Program as it is named by Hockey Canada.

For players between 4-7 years of age, please click here or click the Initiation Program tab for more information regarding the program.


For House League Competitive Program - House League SELECT:


Players on House League teams are also permitted to try out for our Select Teams which are offered in most divisions. There is no body checking in our Select program. Teams can play up to an additional thirty (30) games in addition to their House League Team.
The Select teams play a series of exhibition games and tournaments. For the 2019 - 2020 season we will have teams from Novice to Midget.

For Competitive Hockey Programming - REP:

BLOMHA also operates a level of REP hockey called MD (Minor Development) for players from 7 to 15 years old. These teams compete in their regular season with other Alliance Hockey centres in Southwestern Ontario such as Hamilton, Brantford, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford and St. Catharines.
This program is offered from Minor Novice through Minor Midget and requires many hours of commitment from Coaches and families.

Can I play House League and REP at the same time?

No, you cannot. REP is a high commitment program with players that excel in there age group. These teams will travel for their weekly games and tournaments.

To Play House League Select or REP, does my child need to be very skilled?

Ideally the House League Select and REP teams are picked through tryouts, anyone is welcome to come and participate. Coaches along with the Director of Coaching will pick players from the tryouts for their team. Unfortunately not everyone is guaranteed a position.
