In 1991 the following individuals were responsible for establishing the City of Vaughan Hockey Association. Their vision, hard work and collective efforts amalgamated Maple Minor Hockey Association, Woodbridge Minor Hockey and Thornhill Hockey. The newly established City of Vaughan Hockey Association brought together players, coaches, volunteers and parents from all corners of Vaughan to set the foundation for one of the strongest most successful minor hockey associations in Ontario!
Thank you! To our Founding Members from the thousands of players who have participated in the City of Vaughan Hockey Association/Vaughan Rangers programs over the many years.
The continued success of the The City of Vaughan Hockey Association is due in great part to the collective effort and commitment of the City of Vaughan and the entire team in the Recreation and Culture Department. Specifically Doris Haist, Joyce Epstien and Mary Reale who led the initial COV team that established our Association. Their commitment to the residence of Vaughan and the Youth Programing established a long and very sound foundation of Youth Sports Programming in The City of Vaughan.
