As the sun gets ready to set on another warm and wonderful summer and the back to school sales start to emerge, the GBSA board gets ready to ‘drop the puck’ on our 51st hockey season. Canada’s game!
All of us involved are so thankful to be a part of this “Hidden Gem” of a league. The GBSA was established in 1968, by George Bray who started out with a big idea; to allow children and young adults with special needs to play hockey. In the beginning we had only a handful of players and since then our objective has been and continues to be, to grow the league. Last year we registered over 240 players and outfitted almost half of those players with our loaned equipment. We have three divisions – Junior (including a Fundamental’s group for beginners), Intermediate and Senior.
GBSA has a no cost equipment loaner program and a hockey school to help players sharpen their skills and/or improve their skating. Our registration fees continue to remain low, only $180 for all divisions and $70 for Hockey School, thanks to the continued support of our dedicated sponsors.
The GBSA board members, coaches and on ice skaters are all volunteers which also helps to keep our fees low and are among the most caring people you will find in sports.
We know you’re out there… Everybody knows somebody who can benefit from this league. Teachers, Educational Assistants, relatives, friends, and neighbours – we need your help to spread the word.
Our registration dates for the 2019-2020 season held at Kinsmen Arena, 20 Granville St. September 14th, 18th, 21st, and 25th. The first puck drops Saturday September 28th. All games are played on Saturdays.
