NBDGHA PARTNERSHIP WITH NIPISSING UNIVERSITY
The North Bay & District Girls Hockey Association (NBDGHA) is proud to have had a long standing partnership with Nipissing University Athletics and the Lakers Women's Hockey Program. The 2023/24 season will mark a new beginning for the NBDGHA as all teams will be known as the North Bay Junior Lakers, and will wear the colours of navy, white and Lakers green and sport the Junior Lakers logo on their home and away jerseys. The partnership benefits both organizations with shared resources, training and promotions.
As part of the partnership, Junior Lakers teams will gain access to the RJ Surtees Athletic Centre located on Nipissing University's campus in North Bay, ON at 100 College Dr. Throughout the season Nipissing Lakers Women's Hockey players will attend Jr.Lakers practices of all levels, assisting in drills and player-development. High Performance Program teams will also benefit from Mental Performance coaching. Coaches and team staff will also benefit from the partnership with access to professional development days.
