SCFHA PARTNERSHIP WITH BROCK UNIVERSITY
St. Catharines Female Hockey Association (SCFHA) is proud of our long standing partnership with Brock University Athletics dating back to 2013. The partnership benefits both organizations in terms of training, promotions and shared resources. Thanks to our partnership, SCFHA competitive/travel rep teams are known as the Brock Jr. Badgers. We wear the Brock Athletics colours of navy, red and white, and sport the Brock “Badger” logo on their home and away jerseys. The SCFHA house league teams also wear a new “Jr. Badger” logo on their jerseys. The SCFHA is the largest female hockey association in Niagara.
A unique feature about the Jr. Badgers program is its partnership with the Brock University women’s varsity hockey team, and its coach Margot Page. Throughout the season Brock players attend Jr. Badger practices at all levels, assisting in drills and player-development. It’s a benefit to both organizations. “Obviously from the Jr. Badgers side, the girls get to interact with great female role models at their practices, and our girls get a reminder of why they started playing the game in the first place,” said Page. “Our varsity players love going to the practices and helping the younger girls learn the game,” Page explained.
Brock’s women’s hockey team began varsity play in 2000. Throughout their history, the Badgers have produced many great players, including Athletes of the Year Sarah Brooks (2000-01), Kate Allgood (2005-06), Beth Clause (2010-11) and Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) First Team All-Canadian Kelly Walker.
