AGHA Objectives


The AGHA is committed to providing a safe, fun, and nurturing environment in which female hockey players of all ages and skill levels can develop. It is our aim to not only encourage the physical development and skill acquisition necessary to the game of hockey, but also the dedication to team, motivation for improvement, and respect for others necessary to the game of life. We offer this program to girls who want to play as a way to be healthy, be proud and be part of a larger community.

Our aim is:

• To give every player an opportunity to participate on an equal basis;
• To teach good sportsmanship and have fun;
• To develop hockey skills in a planned sequence;
• To promote physical, mental and social development;
• To promote truth, honesty and integrity;
• To develop coaches, officials and volunteers to carry out the expressed goals of our members.

And a brief history of the Association:
Almaguin Girls Hockey Association (AGHA) officially began as an organization in 2009 through the dedication of hardworking volunteers
who wanted to create a safe and welcoming space for girls to play hockey.  The first Almaguin girl’s hockey team was created in 2007
which consisted of a mixed bag of "Peewee" girls aged 6 to 12, who played with the local minor hockey association. The association
holds the above values and objectives and aim to nurture a physical lifestyle of our community youth girls.
