Our Inaugural 2017/18 season was Amazing, with two successful Collingwood Lightning Atom and Peewee Local League Teams. Fielding five Local League teams in 2018/19 season, and another two competitive teams in 2019/20. Our fourth season proved a challenge with COVID restrictions and limited playing ability, however our registrations continued to increase in numbers and we were able to provide inter squad programming.
We are now heading into our FIFTH season expecting all age divisions, Novice through Midget, with the possibility of a Lightning Little League U7 Program.
We are very honoured and proud to offer girls in the Collingwood and surrounding area of Georgian Bay an opportunity to play female only hockey in their community. It is our sincere wish to offer these opportunities to girls in a safe, fun and supportive environment. As we enter our fifth season, please be patient as we continue to learn our roles and create further governance and executive that are exclusively operating and managing this association.
COLGHA is thrilled to offer hockey programs for girls of varying ages and skill levels.
Our Fundamentals Program will continue to offer girls an opportunity to develop their skating and hockey skills without committing to a team.
Local Lightning Teams, Novice through Midget will participate in the Simcoe Muskoka Girls House League, SMGHL. This league includes girls teams from Huntsville, Barrie, Orillia, Midland, Alliston and Collingwood. The season includes a 20 game schedule; 10 home and 10 away games. As well, weekly practices and one to two tournaments, pending Covid restrictions. Additional Power Skating, development practices and goalie clinics may be added throughout the season.
Competitive Lightning Teams, TBD will participate in the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League, LLFHL. This league is very similar to the local league loop. It will also include centres such as, Caledon, Orangeville, Georgina, Aurora, Saugeen Shores, Owen Sound and Walkerton.
