Nepean Minor Hockey Association is one of the largest hockey associations in Canada, with over 2700 children playing in Initiation, House League and Competitive divisions.
The objective of the Association is to foster and encourage the sport of minor hockey throughout the former City of Nepean (now Ottawa). A full description of our aims and operation are included in our Constitution.
The NMHA is a member of the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association (ODMHA), and, therefore, associated with the Ottawa District Hockey Association (ODHA) and the Canadian Hockey Association (CHA).
Our Initiation program is for 6 year olds, and concentrates on skating skills and hockey fundamentals. The House League recreation program covers 7-21 year olds. Our Competitive, or rep/travel, teams consist of 9-17 year olds. In Competitive, we have AA, A and B ratings, as do all associations in the Ottawa area.
We have been in involved in hockey since 1965, and our greatest "claim-to-fame" is Nepean´s own Steve Yzerman, once captain of the Stanley Cup champion Detroit Red Wings, currently General Manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Visit our History page for more information on Steve, as well as other NMHA success stories. A background of the NMHA is also included.
