Contact Clinics

EGMHA has secured ice and instruction for contact clinics as we head into tryouts in May. With the pilot merge between EGMHA and GMHA, we have aligned to provide the same instruction across both sets of clinics. All 4 will be run by the same contact coach - Eric Clarke. Eric is a certified D1 contact coach and provides excellent instruction. He has a strong background in both Georgina and East Gwillimbury minor hockey.

The clinics are open to all U14 players (23-24 season), and if you intend on trying out for U14 AA or A (for UYMHA), attendance at one of these clinics is mandatory, and it is highly recommended that you attend two sessions. If you are a U15 player (23-24 season) and intend on trying out for U15 AA or A (for UYMHA), and did not play contact last season, you must attend one of these clinics. 

The clinics are listed below, just click on the date and it will take you to a page where you can sign up for that clinic. There is no cost for these clinics.

If you are unable to attend any of these clinics, please reach out directly to [email protected]. If you attend a different contact clinic (outside EGMHA/GMHA), you can be exempted from attending one of these provided you can show proof of attendance at said clinic.

Any questions can be directed to [email protected] as well.

* There may be a waitlist, please still sign up on that list so we can see our total numbers. We may have to add another session if if the numbers dictate that.
