Select Teams

Interested in learning about select teams?  Select teams are competitive-based and travel to weekend tournaments around Ontario during the summer.  Select players must fund their own teams, or find separate sponsors to fund their activities.

Ages for select teams may differ from our regular girls divisions and is divided into Mite [U10], Squirt [U12], Novice [U14], Bantam [U16] and Midget [U19] wherein age is determined by birth year (more information can be found on the OSSTA website).

We are proud to send our players to competitive tournaments as the Nickel City Howlers!
