Gryphon Athletics & Guelph Girls Hockey Association Announce Partnership
Submitted By Sandra Pitts on Tuesday, May 7, 2013
The University of Guelph is proud to announce a new multi-year partnership between Gryphon Athletics and the Guelph Girls Hockey Association (GGHA). The partnership offers various levels of support to all members of the GGHA. The five-year agreement focuses on continuing to build our thriving girls hockey community in the city of Guelph. Starting with the 2013-2014 season, all GGHA rep hockey teams will be proudly wearing the colours and logo of the Gryphon men’s and women’s varsity teams.


Other key components of the partnership:

- Ice-time at the University of Guelph Gryphon Centre.

- Development opportunities with coaches, players, and trainers through workshops.

- All GGHA member players will receive a Jr. Gryphon membership card for admission to any Gryphon Varsity Sporting event (Excluding Homecoming Football & play-offs).

- All participating teams in the Annual GGHA tournament will receive free passes to attend a Gryphon varsity event on campus during the weekend.

- All GGHA member players will receive a $10 discount off any Gryphon summer camp program.

- All GGHA member players will receive preferred pricing for select Gryphon apparel.

- Opportunity for younger teams to participate with “in-between” period mini-games and contests during women’s varsity games.

“This is an exciting partnership between the Gryphons and GGHA,” said University of Guelph, Director of Athletics Tom Kendall. “This is another great opportunity to engage and be leaders in connecting with our local minor sport community. We hope that we can help their young players to develop and in turn we are excited for them to sport our logo and have them in the stands cheering on our Gryphons teams.”

“The GGHA is thrilled about the partnership with the Gryphons,” according to Sandra Pitts, President of the Guelph Girls Hockey Association. “It is a natural fit between the GGHA and the Gryphon Women’s varsity hockey program. We look forward to the athletic and personal development opportunities offered by this relationship, as well as increasing awareness of both girls hockey in Guelph and the possibilities of higher education at the University.”
