Established in 2022 the Niagara Minor Ball Hockey League is the ultimate organizational role model for the sport of Ball Hockey in Canada. Setting a new standard by combining passion, tradition and community involvement; our goal is to provide an affordable minor ball hockey league for our youth to enjoy. Our sport is inexpensive to play, requires few basic skills and transcends all socio-economic barriers.
Our league is a member of the Ontario Ball Hockey Federation (OBHF). The Ontario Ball Hockey Federation crowns champions at many different levels and players can participate in many different age groups from Learn to Play (3-6 years of age) to Masters (over 40 years of age). There are minor's, men's and women's leagues available and balanced competition is promoted throughout the province by allocating teams into A, B, C, D and E levels based on player experience and ability. Similar to ice hockey, players may participate in House League and Representative Programs. The OBHF sets the standard for the sport of ball hockey throughout the world and strives to be one of the most successful amateur sports organizations in Canada.
