The Niagara Whalers are a Third year franchise in the GMHL this season for 2016-2017
We look forward to another successful season playing out of the Vale Health and Wellness Center in Port Colborne.
The Niagara Whalers JR A Hockey Club operates a first-class program that is devoted to the development of young hockey players both on and off the ice. Our first year in the league with the Niagara Whalers showed the success and progress we expect from our players and coaches qualifying for the playoffs in our first season and in our second season we have moved into the second round of the playoffs after hiring legendary head coach Terry Masterson. Coach Masterson has the experience on the ice and the history of moving players to high levels of hockey over his career.
The Whalers management is no stranger to high level hockey as our company operates one of the best showcase organizations in the spring/summer in the United States and Canada for the past 8 years attending the highest ranked tournaments to showcase our players to prospective college and pro teams moving over 100 players from our spring teams to Jr,Pro and NCAA hockey since its inception 8 years ago.
Our Jr Club focuses on our players giving them a state of the art experience from the moment they arrive at the The Vale Health and Wellness center which features 2 indoor pools, weight rooms, indoor basketball courts, a indoor track, Subway, a pro style rink with all the bells and whistles in the facility along with luxury coach bus transportation, a 42 game schedule and a high level of hockey our fans can enjoy! Whalers pride themselves on having the right people, right connections and right facilities for a committed hockey player to continue his career on whichever avenue he chooses.
The Niagara Whalers are currently taking applications for players and host families (billet families) for the the 2016/17 season. For more information, including how to apply, contact the team.
Owner/President of Hockey Operations
The Niagara Whalers goal is to help players develop and obtain positions in higher levels of hockey and education. The majority of our players have aspirations to play NCAA or a form of Pro hockey, with some trying to progress to OJHL, OHL or Pro teams.
Our club consists of players between the ages of 16 and 21 years of age. The organization will work with our players to define clear goals and objectives within the game itself, and for life as a whole. Only athletes with the highest of expectations of themselves will be considered for our Niagara Whalers Jr A Club.
