Brock Athletics partners with St. Catharines Female Hockey

Published on November 06 2013

Brock University Athletics is partnering with the St. Catharines Female Hockey Association (SCFHA) on a long-term mutual agreement that will benefit both organizations in terms of training, promotions and shared resources.

Thanks to the partnership, SCFHA competitive/travel rep teams will now be known as the Brock Jr. Badgers. They will wear the Brock Athletics colours of navy, red and white, and sport the Brock “Badger” logo on their home and away jerseys. The SCFHA house league teams will also wear a new “Jr. Badger” logo on their jerseys.

Additionally, the agreement will see the Brock women’s team host clinics and practices for SCFHA players and coaches. Players registered with SCFHA will also be eligible for preferred rates on the girl’s hockey schools offered by Brock Athletics.

“This is a great community partnership, and this is good news for female hockey in Niagara,” says Brock Director of Athletics Robert Hilson. “Our student-athletes are great role models for youth in the region and many young players have a dream of becoming a university player in the future. So this partnership is a good fit.”
