In Northerns we play hockey from very young all the way up to masters level.  We have "social" teams and highly competitive teams.  Our provincial teams - from under 12 to senior - are regulars in the semi-finals or finals of interprovincial tournaments and we've had players on national teams for many, many years.  Our umpires and officials feature very prominently on national and international stages all the way up to the World Cup and Olympic Games.

We truly have something for everyone - please follow the links in the menu above for more information on who we are and what we do.
