Sault female hockey success story

October 16, 2015

In one of multiple good news stories early this 2015-2016 season, the Sault Female Hockey Association has confirmed a record turnout for its FUNdamental program.

According to public relations director Kirsten Corrigal, more than 40 girls have signed up for the SFHA’s FUNdamental program, which is a beginner-level project focused on teaching the basics to new hockey players.

As well, the SFHA introduced a new novice-level house league program this 2015-2016 season with more than 30 girls involved.

This is in addition to the already-successful SFHA novice representative program that features seven teams this season.

The SFHA also has two new teams at the bantam and pee wee levels, according to Corrigal.

SFHA is a volunteer-run organization which operates under the umbrella of the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association.

With many new faces on the executive board, the SFHA is looking to continue the growth of its organization, Corrigal noted.

Many of the SFHA teams travel to tournaments throughout Ontario and into the United States. Over the past few years, SFHA teams have returned home from provincial championship tournaments with gold, silver and bronze medals.
