A Record Season for the Cambridge roadrunners Girls' Hockey Association
Submitted By roadrunners Hockey on Tuesday, April 23, 2019
The Cambridge roadrunners Girls' Hockey Association had a record 2018/2019 season. Out of all of the associations in Ontario, they had the most teams qualify for the Lower Lakes Championship weekend. With five teams representing the roadrunners, four teams came home with medals. Atom A went undefeated the entire weekend winning gold while Senior A, Bantam AA and Bantam A took home bronze.

CrGHA also had a record number of travel teams in the Association’s history qualify for the Provincial championships sending 9 teams to the championship weekend. Bantam AA earned the title of the top team in Ontario bringing home the Gold defeating Oakville 2-1. Bantam BB came out with a silver medal losing in triple over-time in their final game.

CrGHA house league teams also had a strong showing at the Kitchener Local League House League finals sending 5 teams to the championship weekend. In a Cambridge versus Cambridge final, Bantam 2 defeated Bantam 1 3-1 bringing home a gold and silver medal. Peewee 3 defeated Waterloo 2-1 also bringing home gold while Novice 2 won silver.

The Association delivered exemplary results in tournament play. With travel, house league and DS teams combined, they brought home 19 gold medals, 18 silvers and 6 bronze medals in tournaments across Ontario and the US.
 
CrGHA plans to see continued success by committing to work on development of their players with the introduction of their High Performance Program and Development Program. The High Performance Program focuses on players from the top Peewee, Bantam and Midget teams working closely with the higher level teams. It also includes the top Bantam and Midget teams and coaches working closely with the Rivulettes team and coaching staff giving the players opportunities to practice with the Rivulettes and possibly play games in the event of injuries.
 
Our Development Program is designed to provide opportunities for all travel players on second and third travel teams to work with the higher level team's on a regular basis. House league teams will also have the opportunity to practice with older level house league teams. The goal of these programs is to provide player development by improving skills and preparing players to play at the next level. It also provides access to different coaches and mentorship opportunities with older players.
 
As a Board, we are extremely happy with the success of our house league and travel teams this season. With the ongoing commitment to development, we look forward to continued success in the upcoming season.
