On behalf of the Nepean Girls Hockey Association, we are pleased to welcome you, your team, and families to our Paint it Purple Tournament! We are looking forward to hosting 86 teams for the weekend.


Tournament HQ is located in the Echo Room, on the 2nd floor of Minto Recreation Centre (3500 Cambrian Rd). One team representative must check-in to tournament HQ no later than 5:00pm Friday, Feb. 7 to present their approved OWHA Roster (or similar form, as supplied by their district). Any team using an OWHA Pickup Consent for Tournament Form MUST bring this to Headquarters BEFORE your team's first game. Failure to do so may result in forfeiture of games. Tournament HQ will be open for registration Thursday, Feb. 6 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm and Friday starting at 7:00am.


You must bring your own labels (3 per game sheet) for every game. Hopefully you will need enough to go right through to the finals so bring extras!

It will be each team's responsibility to choose one recipient for each game to be awarded in the change room.
