About Us



The Cape Breton Blizzard Female Hockey Association is for girls playing hockey on girls’ teams throughout Cape Breton Regional Municipality. Blizzard Hockey has both traveling rep teams and house league “community” hockey teams for girls aged 5-18.

We are committed to knocking down the barriers to girls participation in sport. Please contact us at info@capebretonblizzard.ca if you need financial assistance, payment planning or equipment support. Also check out our Financial Assistance page.


In 2015, Hockey Nova Scotia announced their intent to establish Female Hockey Associations across Nova Scotia to ensure a dedicated, sustained focus on girls hockey in all areas of the province.  By 2020, five of the seven zones in Nova Scotia are administered by Female Hockey Associations (FHAs).

In early 2018, the Cape Breton Female Hockey Executive Committee, appointed by Hockey Nova Scotia,  partnered with Dairy Queen (both Grand Lake Road and Kings Road stores) to become the Cape Breton Blizzard. All of the zone’s female teams – Atom, PeeWee, Bantam and Midget –  are now called Cape Breton Blizzard.

In 2018 and 2019, the organization had 10 teams and over 150 players in Atom thru to Midget age groups (U11-U18). Glace Bay Minor Hockey was selected as the host association for all teams in the program during these two seasons.

In 2020, Blizzard Hockey was designated a Hockey Nova Scotia Female Hockey Association and added a U9 division and a U7 starters group. In its first year of independent operations, Blizzard grew to 215 players and 13 teams. In addition to Dairy Queen, the program was sponsored by Sobeys and Foodland with support from Jumpstart, Hockey Canada Foundation and SportFund.

In 2021, Blizzard added a Bauer First Shift program.
