A little about us!
Edmonton Girls Hockey Association (EGHA) is a city-wide girls hockey association, incorporated on September 20th, 1993. We focus on giving each player the chance to develop her skills and have fun in a safe, supportive environment. We had 24 teams in the 2016-2017 season from Novice to Junior, ranging in level of skill and competition. .

Where does my player fit in?

First and foremost, we have our Initiation Program for 4, 5, and 6 year olds (for the 2017-2018 season this includes girls born in 2011, 2012, and 2013). We offer professional instruction from High Tempo Hockey at this level, based on Hockey Canada’s Initiation Program Manual, from local female athletes along with parent volunteers coaching on the ice.

Initiation Program 2017- 2018

The main goal is to make the beginner's first impression of hockey a good one! When players get started on a positive note, they automatically enjoy the game and usually go on to have fun playing hockey for many years.
Hockey Canada developed the Initiation Program to make the first contact with hockey a safe and positive experience.
It is a structured, learn-to-play hockey program designed to introduce beginners to the game's basic skills.
It enables participants to become contributing members of a team effort, develop self-confidence, and experience a sense of personal achievement. These goals are achieved in an atmosphere of fun and fair play.
The Initiation Program is a progressive, learn-to-play teaching curriculum. Children learn through participating in practice drills and informal modified games.


The program consists of four phases of instruction, designed for any entry-level hockey player, which introduce the skills of skating, passing, puck control and shooting in a progressive, one-step-at-a-time manner.

This program will be led by an all-female coaching team from High Tempo Hockey.
The Head Instructor, Lindsay McAlpine, is the Head Coach of the MacEwan Griffins Women's Team, as well as Team Australia.
Jayden Skoye, past captain of the U of A Pandas,
Sydney Thomlison, current captain of the Griffins,
Shanya Shwetz, current assistant captain of the Griffins,
Ashley Rossi, recent U of A Elementary Education graduate, and past player and 2 time ACAC Champion with the NAIT Ooks.
