Let's Go Rangers!
The purpose of the Westfort Hockey Association is to organize, develop, promote and grow minor hockey for youth in the City of Thunder Bay under the mandate of Hockey Canada and Hockey Northwestern Ontario. We will deliver an outstanding hockey experience regardless of race, gender, colour, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic status. We encourage and cultivate the values of teamwork, sportsmanship, leadership, respect, community spirit, pursuit of excellence, fairness and integrity.
The Westfort Hockey Association will provide quality leadership at all levels by enlisting the best coaches and support staff. These coaches and volunteers will be role models for our youth so that they can develop into strong future leaders and productive individuals in our community. Consistency will be applied to the General Membership of the Westfort Hockey Association to uphold our values and our vision. We will incorporate high expectations of appropriate behaviour in all venues by each player, parent, and volunteer on or off the ice. There should be a focus on process versus outcome. In our Pursuit of Excellence, we must not forget that hockey is a team sport. Development and growth within the team takes precedent over the final score. We want our youth athletes to have fun and stay in the sport of hockey for years to come. The values
