The Association has been putting a lot of focus into Developmental Programs and this has shown at all levels of our hockey program. This success, however can be seen most prominently in our Rep Program.
It had been years since one of our Frontenac Flyers teams made it to the OMHA Finals and two years ago our Novice Rep team (Coached by Jason Quesnel) broke that drought. But it didn’t stop there, last year the Novices (Coached by Jamie Craig) set the ground and made headlines by Winning and becoming the OMHA Champions.

This year we are proud to have 4 out of 5 of our Rep Teams advance to the OMHA Semi Finals and one step closer to again winning.

Our Novices, coached by Don Rowat & Cory Thompson, had been dominating their season and series but The Campbellford Colts are showing true competition and have us on the ropes winning the last two games. But our young Flyers are resilient and will prove that when they bring the game home Tuesday March 6th at 7:00pm.

Our Atoms, coached by Jamie Craig, put on a good show last weekend when they took to the road on an overnight trip to Haliburton to kick off their OMHA Semi Finals against The Highland Storm. They took the win Friday night with a quick back and forth game which ended in our favour at 7-4. Saturdays game was just as good but ended in overtime with Highland Storm taking the win. The series now continues with the Atom Flyers having the home ice advantage this Friday March 9th at 7:00pm and again on Saturday March 10th at 2:00pm.

The Peewees, coached by Al Pixley, hope to bring a close to their Semi-Final series against The Shelburne Wolves and clinch a spot in the OMHA Finals. They currently lead the series with two wins and one more win npaves the way for a chance at the OMHA Championship. Although for the next two games we cant pack the stands again to cheer the Peewees on as they are in Shelburne, don't think that we aren't all rooting for them and wish them all good luck.The Bantams, coached by Jon Senior, are making history as it has been a long time in Flyers history since a Bantam Team has made it this close to winning the infamous Red Hats that come along with winning the OMHA Championship. The Bantams swept their Semi Final Series against the Highland Storm and are now waiting to see who they will face off against in the Finals.

We are so proud of all of our team’s accomplishments and the true FLYERS SPIRIT that has been exhibited. We encourage everyone to come to the games and see how our Rep Program has flourished and continue to leave our reputation from Novice all the way to Midget.

All in all the Frontenac Minor Hockey Association and its programs have continued to grow and show success. With our Inter Community House League (ICHL) winding down this last weekend our success not only showed on the score boards but also on the progression and advancement in skills for all of our players. Our association supports over 350 players and many awesome volunteers, coaches and bench staff which lead our programs to be as positive as they are. Our ICHL offers recreational hockey for two if not three teams per division starting from as young as 5 years (Tyke/IP) to 18 (Midget). We also offer Learn to Skate which is available for youth ages 3 and up and the First Shift Program (6-10yrs old).

We know it is tough to see our ICHL season so quickly come to an end and our Rep teams closing the gap to the end of their season so what better time to think about what to do next. Frontenac Ball Hockey Association is pleased to announce that registration is now open. Frontenac Ball hockey is open to everyone and offers full inner squad ball hockey for youths age 3-18 and is excited to again offer a co-ed Adult Ball Hockey (18 and over).
