Our REP Aces League games are played weekdays against local cities such as Oakville, Milton, Etobicoke and other cities. We will also offer practices, usually weekdays but we will work each coach individually to see what best fits each team. The season will run from May and June. The intent is that these REP Aces teams will represent our league at the OBHF Provincial Championships held in July.
We need teams for the following age groups:
REP U10 (ages 9-10)
REP U12 (ages 11-12)
REP U14 (ages 13-14)
REP U16 (ages 15-16)
REP U18 (ages 17-18)
Our objective and goal
Our objective is to give the players and coaches the best opportunity for success at the OBHF Provincial Championships. Success and winning at the Provincial tournaments can lead to once in a lifetime experiences. Past successful Aces teams have won the opportunity to participate at the Canadian Ball Hockey Association Canadian National Ball Hockey Championships. Our Aces players who excelled at the National Championship tournament have been selected to play for Team Canada. Playing for Team Canada gave them an experience they will never forget. They got to play for an ISBHF World Ball Hockey Championship in countries such as the Czech Republic, United Kingdom and Slovakia just to name a few. We want to get Aces players back onto the Ball Hockey World stage.
