Please Note: All constitution amendments and policy changes will be posted here at least 20 days prior to the AGM
We need some new families to join the executive, become volunteers for fundraising events and help to shape the future of the West Northumberland Wild hockey association. If you don't speak up about things you like and things you don't like, things will never change for the better or the worst. Please consider attending!

All requests for releases need to be in writing and presented to WNGHA executive for vote at our next scheduled monthly meeting (currently the second Tuesday of every month). A player moving to a higher level which WNGHA does not provide will be granted a release only if she makes the higher level team. ALL lateral requests (players requesting to move to a level that the WNGHA does offer) will be denied, unless the player has moved out of our catchment area. Player releases will not be issued to players who have not fulfilled their financial obligations or have not returned WNGHA equipment.
