SCPGHA is a growing hockey organization and we believe that all girls who are interested in playing hockey should be allowed and able to play. We want all girls of all skill levels to join and we believe that finances should not be a barrier to enjoying the game of hockey.
There are a variety of programs available to help offset the cost of playing hockey. Most are needs based and require an application.
SCPGHA does not directly subsidize any players to play for the organization but will work with parties to secure funding from outside organizations.
Below is a list of available programs one can choose to apply for:
Grindstone Award Foundation
The Grindstone Award Foundation is an official Registered Canadian Charity that enables young female players the opportunity to participate and improve their skill development in the sport of hockey. They provide financial support to young female hockey players who have the desire to play but are unable to for financial reasons.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program
Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It's about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates, and their friends. Whether it's the need to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.
