PrintAbout SCFHA Jr. Badgers Rep Hockey



SCFHA Rep hockey is a competitive stream of girls-only hockey. Teams are chosen based on try-outs each year, and these teams compete across Ontario. 

The SCFHA Rep program is well represented in Ontario with teams competing from U9 to U22A. 

The levels of Women’s Rep hockey are categorized as follows:

By level, from highest to lowest: AA, A, BB, B

By age, from youngest to oldest: U9, U11, U13, U15, U18, U22 

We have approximately 17 teams each year representing our league at various levels and age groups. Each age group consists of both a minor and a major age group combined as per the guidelines of the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA). This means that teams are comprised of players from two age groups. For example, a U13 team has players aged 11 and 12. U18 teams are comprised of 3 age groups with players from ages 15-17. 

Coaches apply each year for a team, and are interviewed by the SCFHA Selection Committee in November/December for the following season in April. Coaches select their Coaching staff, and develop their own budger and season plans. Teams compete from September to April each year, and have a summer development component. 


The SCFHA Jr Badgers Rep Program's philosophy is catered on player development, where athletes learn to play the game, learn to love the game, and then learn to excel at the game, at the highest level of competition. Our High Performance and REP program promotes the OWHA values of fun, fair play, excellence, good citizenship, integrity, honesty, equity and adding the value of respect. 

Our vision as an organization is to provide all players with the opportunity to play and develop into the best player possible. The program provides players with a competitive hockey environment so they can become a better player and a better person. 

The current SCFHA Rep Director is Steve Bowen. Please feel free to contact Steve if you have any questions about our Rep Program at [email protected]
