Sabres Nation supports BAA VanNetten Family

As all Sabres family members do, we support within.  Holly VanNetten, a Sabres player on the U15 AA team this past season, and her family are staying optimistic, as their father Mike is in critical condition with Covid 19, at the Hamilton General Hospital. 
As their family motto says, "steady as you go"!
Our prayers are with you!

Please consider participating in a drawing with Stoke Strength to help benefit the VanNetten family.

Nova Scotia cancels the IIHF Women's World Championship

By SCGHA Admin

From the original April date, to the rescheduled date of May 6 to 16th, it was finally sadly announced Wednesday, that Women's World Hockey Championship in Halifax and Truro, NS, has been cancelled due to Covid19.  Increasing numbers of Covid19, the circulation of the variants and the safety of the community/participants, were the pending factors that made the short notice decision.  Although it was mentioned that a new location and potential date will be announced; it was not provided on Wednesday’s announcement.


The Sabres Nation wishes the safe return of our alumni players and all other participants with the hopes to have the IIHF and Hockey Canada host the Woman’s Championship hosted safely this year.

Over the past 30 years, if I’ve been asked once, I’ve been asked a 1000 times, why I have coached Women’s hockey.
At the age of 10 years old, I often went to rink with my idol, my father.  At times, even when I wasn’t practicing or playing. 
My Father, held the position of the President of the Stoney Creek Boys Hockey Association, prior to the Association becoming named the Warriors and he also held the position of head coach of the Bantam AA team. My Father was also a proud member of the Optimist Club that assisted in raising money for youth sports.
On one occasion, during the multiple car rides to the arenas, I asked my Father why he put so much time into the hockey organization and the Optimist Club.  His answer to me was, “You owe it to your community to give back and when you give back, be passionate about it.”
He also went on to express passionately, that if he could make a positive difference in just one boy’s life, that his influence towards that boy, may go on to change the world and make it a better place.
Below is a video clip interview of a previous Sabres player that I have influenced as a coach back in 2014-15. She is currently playing for Mercyhurst, in the NCAA.
This is why I coach.
