Recreational program for minor female players
Our recreational “House” or "C" program is for girls (ages 5 to 23) wishing to play at a less intensive competitive level, or whose skills are still developing. This is for players to enjoy friendly competition and recreational play while developing their skills. There is no try-out process for the category "C" teams comprising our recreational house league. We try to form teams that emphasize continuity over time and playing with friends. Based on attrition and new joiners, teams may need to merge and players may move around to ensure there are enough teams each year.
In addition to league play, our house teams (U11 and up) also have the opportunity to compete in tournaments. A typical house team plays 20 to 30 games a year. In June, District Playoffs for the U15, U17, and U19 divisions determine which teams advance to the Provincial Championships. In addition, all teams U11 to U19 have the opportunity to participate in the annual NSGFA year-end tournament (or jamboree for U7 and U9). All U11 and U13 teams also have the opportunity to play in a Regional Championship tournament.
We encourage friends to play together in our house program; our registration form provides a space to list up to three friends. Although we do our best to honour such requests, this becomes much more difficult once team forming begins, so please register early.
Expect a competitive but recreational atmosphere, with opportunities for player development.
