What kind of hockey programming does BLOMHA offer? What are the different programs?

Non Competitive Hockey Program - House League:

The foundation of BLOMHA 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 playing hockey with BLOMHA. Many return as volunteers to work with the next generation of our youth hockey players.  

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

BLOMHA also provides an introductory hockey 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 that are between 4 and 7 years of age, please click here  for more information regarding this program.

House League Competitive Program - 
House League SELECT:

Players who register for House League and play on House League teams are also permitted to tryout for our Select Teams which are offered in all divisions except Minor Novice (IP 7). There is no body checking in our Select program. Players on HL Select teams can play up to an additional thirty (30) games in addition to their House League schedule. 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 MD:

BLOMHA also operates a level of REP hockey called MD (Minor Development) for players from 7 to 15 years old. These teams compete in regular season play against other Minor Hockey Alliance centres in Southwestern Ontario such as Hamilton, Brantford, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford, Woodstock and St. Catharines. This program is offered from Minor Novice (7) through Minor Midget (15) 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 MD is a high commitment program with players that are excelling in their age group. These teams may travel for their weekly games and tournaments.

To play House League Select or Rep MD, does my child need to be very skilled?

The House League Select and Rep MD teams are picked through tryouts, however anyone is welcome to come and participate in these tryout sessions. Head Coaches with the assistance of the Director of Coaching pick players from the tryouts for their Select or MD teams. Unfortunately not everyone who attends these tryouts is guaranteed or offered a position.
