OGHA Board Opportunities


Interested in assisting with the development of girls hockey in Orillia? This is a great place to start!


With the 2022-2023 coming to a close, we have a large amount of our board looking to ‘Retire’ - for a lack of better terms. Many of these individuals have served on the board for multiple years and have contributed to the success of the Orillia Girls Hockey Association. We hope you’ll do the same! 


The following positions will be available to interview for or to be appointed;


Vice President

Treasurer (Appointed position)


Director of House League

Ice and Game Official Scheduler

Communications Director

Tournament Director



All of these positions will have the contact information for the current board and will be provided the resources required to have a successful season. Current positions will act as advisory positions until the transition is completed - no one will be left stranded!


All parents are encouraged to consider these opportunities - coaches & team managers included. Looking forward to growing girls hockey in the Orillia area!
