Our History & Home Centres (Central Ontario Wolves AAA)

PrintOur History & Home Centres

Our History
he Central Ontario Wolves Hockey Association (COWHA) began its quest in March 1991. Community members in our vast geographic area made their initial contact with the OMHA displaying their interest in starting a AAA Hockey Zone. 

The OMHA required a proposal as well as guidelines and a constitution to be drafted. Along with this they needed signatures of support from all the presidents of Minor Hockey in the original centres. After meeting with all 24 presidents, the entire package was presented to OMHA and approval was granted.

The search began for people to represent all 21 centres at the regular meetings. Regular meetings began in the Fall 1991 and an Executive Board was formed. The ground work had been laid and it was time to work on the details; equipment was ordered, a logo was drafted; fundraising began and the coaches were put in place.

The first set of tryouts for 9 teams began in August 1992. In September 1992, the first COWHA teams began their season on the ice and we have never looked back!
Our Awesome Home Centres
COWHA draws its talent from a very diverse geographic area that spans from the borders the Haliburton Highlands down to above the cities on the north shore of Lake Ontario (Ajax-Pickering, Whitby, Oshawa, Clarington) and over to both Peterborough and Markham/ Newmarket/ East Gwillimbury. We would like to thank our local centres that provide us with the players we need to roster a competitive AAA Program.
