New partnership: Kanata Rangers and Nepean Wildcats
New for the 2022-2023 season: The Kanata Rangers and Nepean Wildcats house league programs are joining forces for an exciting new partnership.
This new format will include a continuation of great gameplay in Rangers House League, and starting in November, games will also be played against NGHA teams.
Frequently asked questions
Q: What does this mean for our Rangers?
A: This new partnership will mean our house league players will continue to compete against great opponents, but will not need to travel as far to do this. Nepean has several teams in each age group, which means our teams will still have a lot of opponents to play against throughout the season.
Q: Will we still play games against MOGHL teams?
A: Yes, you could still be playing against these teams at any local or away tournaments; however, we will not be competing against Gloucester, Ottawa, or Gatineau this season in regular gameplay. We wish the MOGHL group all the best of luck this season and look forward to seeing them at tournaments.
Q: How far will we be expecting to travel to play against Nepean?
A: Nepean home games will still take place at Minto in Barrhaven or at Carleton University, depending on your division. Practices and internal games (between two KGHA teams) will still all be held at our usual KGHA arenas.
Q: Will we still have all our practices and games on the weekend?
A: Yes. All ice times will be held on the weekend. Generally, teams can still expect to have one practice on Saturday and one game on Sunday. There may be variations to this where teams would play more than one game on a weekend, but this would be an exception.
Q: Will teams still be permitted to play in tournaments?
A: Yes, house league teams are permitted to play in a maximum of three tournaments, including our own Kanata Tournament at the end of March.
Q: Will we have to play over the Christmas break?
A: No, there will be no ice assigned between December 19 and January 6.
Q: Will this increase my registration or team fees?
A: This new partnership will not have an impact on your registration or team fees.
Q: Will we still have a Championship weekend?
A: The KGHA will have our own championship weekend where we can come together to celebrate the end of our season. More details will be provided in the coming months.
