Port Colborne Girls Hockey Association was formed in 2013 with the help of Port Colborne Minor Hockey Association to give more opportunities for female hockey development within Port Colborne, Wainfleet, Welland, Pelham, Fenwick, Fort Erie, Ridgeway, and other areas of the Niagara Region. We are members of the Ontario Women's Hockey Association. We play within the Greater Hamilton Girls Hockey League as the Port Colborne Wave. Our inaugural year involved a perfect season. Check out our Trophy Case page for some of the amazing accomplishments that our teams have achieved. It doesn't matter if you have been playing for years, or thinking about just starting. We welcome any young woman interested in playing hockey. Our devoted coaching team is more than willing to teach you how to play. Let's Go Wave!
"Nice one!" shouted a voice off the bench.
Wow, what a night! The Niagara Ice Dogs had their pre-season home opener on Wave home ice tonight against the Barrie Colts, and wow what an exciting game. It was a real nail biter right to the end when the third period ended in a tie game forcing a shoot out. The Vale Centre was bursting at the seams and was at full capacity. Too bad the Ice Dogs lost in the shoot out. The Colts aren't the real winners here though, it was the Port Colborne Girls Hockey Association. We want to say thank you to the whole team of the Ice Dogs, as they donated the proceeds to the game to promote girls hockey in South Niagara. We will use this money to grow our program, and to keep ours one of the most affordable programs in Ontario. Thank, you Ice Dogs! Also a big shout out to Wendy's for your support and the free Frosty's and Burgers for the fans. It took a great night, and made it amazing.

With only 9 skaters for each game, a lot of hard work and determination, this group of ladies fought a very hard battle to bring home the gold medal at the North Halton Twisters Tournament!
Game 1 was a 4-0 win against Tecumseh Tigercats where we had the assistance of a Bantam Wave player, Avaia Echlin who even got an assist.
Game 2 was a tough come from behind battle against Niagara Falls, where we pulled the goalie with over three minutes to go in the third period to tie it at 2, then scored with less than a minute in the game, and finally put the icing on the cake with an empty net to win 4-2.
Game 3 was a tough battle with Stoney Creek and we came out with a 3-3 tie
The championship game brought Niagara Falls back to us as opponents. Once again, down going into the third period by a goal, we battled hard to tie it with ten minutes to go in the game. With less than two minutes left in period three, we scored to pull ahead 4-3. The last 100 seconds of the game was a hard-fought battle where the team worked together as a complete unit to hold on for the win to bring home the gold medal.
This weekend was about hard work, bonding as a team and true determination to bring home a win in a sport these ladies all love!
