Wild Rep Hockey (Woolwich Wild - Elmira, St. Jacobs, Breslau Girls Hockey)

PrintWild Rep Hockey

How many games can I expect to play?

The regular season is 22 games, starting at the beginning of October going through the end of January.  In the 6 weeks between the start of February and the middle of March, we play up to three best-of-3 playoff rounds, plus four to eight round robin qualifying games for the OWHA Provincials tournament.

The League Championship weekend is at the end of March, and the Provincial tournament is in early April.

How much practice time will I have?
Woolwich rep teams have approximately two 50-minute practices per week.  Some of those practices will be shared ice, and a few of those practice times will be used for scheduling of games.

What about tournaments?
Most Woolwich rep teams enter two or three tournaments during the year – this is decided upon by the team as a whole.  Rep hockey tournaments typically start on a Friday and continue through the weekend.  They are a lot of fun for girls and parents!

All rep teams have a team budget used to track additional costs for the team, such as tournament fees.  All parents are expected to contribute their share of the total approved budget amount.

How far will I have to drive?
Woolwich teams are part of the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League (LLFHL).  Each year, the LLFHL divisions (loops) are put together once the league knows how many teams are registered in each category.  The loops that we are in vary from year to year and can vary by division (Novice to Midget).  We have driven as far as Sarnia and Goderich in the west, and Niagara Falls and St. Catharines in the east, depending on the season.  We also play teams from centres like Waterloo, Kitchener, Cambridge, Twin Centre, and Wilmot.

Is there an extra cost?
Yes, rep teams do have to pay additional fees.  There is a $30 fee per player for rep team tryouts to help cover the cost of the ice, and there is a rep player fee once you've made the team that covers extra practice ice (approximately 2 practices per week instead of 1) and league registration costs.  This season, 2017 – 18, the fee is $315 for all rep teams with the exception of Midget BB, which is $590 to reflect their increased game length and practices.

How competitive is it?
In female rep hockey, there are 5 categories for rep teams – AA, A, BB, B and C.  Woolwich teams typically are registered in the BB, B and C categories.  Our emphasis is on fair ice time for all players and having fun, as well as playing at a higher skill level than Local League.

Any special equipment requirements?
All rep players must have red pants and helmets (goalie masks excluded), so that the players will all match.  We also expect players to have some kind of Wild clothing to wear off-ice to games and tournaments.

Do I need to purchase goaltending equipment if my daughter is a goaltender?
