The Oakville Hornets are pleased to announce our Midget A coaches for the 2015-2016 season
Kevin Gordon (current BAA interim Head Coach)
Kevin Kemp (Current Midget BB Head Coach)
The Oakville hockey community lost a teammate this week with the passing of Tim Maher. Tim was a devoted dad to his two children, which led to volunteer coaching positions with both the Oakville Hornets and the Oakville Rangers. Tim was a positive influence on and off the ice to everyone he came in contact with at the rink which is part of the reason he’ll be missed by the Oakville hockey family. On behalf of the Hornets Girls Hockey Association, we offer our sincere condolences to Tim’s family at this difficult time.
The Hornets are pleased to announce that Mark Taciuk will be the coach of our Bantam A Major team in 2015/2016. Mark’s team will be comprised entirely of majors while the Bantam A Minor team to be coached by Stacey McConnell will composed of minors only. Mark brings years of experience as a head coach, most recently as head coach of our Bantam B team.

The Hornets were proud to present their $8,600 donation to Susy Borges Santos, from the Wellspring Cancer Support Network in Oakville – all from proceeds raised at the annual Breast Cancer Awareness events held in October. Through the sale of items such as pink hockey tape, water bottles, mini-sticks and home baked cupcakes (all donated), the Hornets were able to collect a sizeable amount. Of course, there was also the ever popular Chuck-a-Puck event that had family members of our Hornets players purchase pucks and the throw them on the ice, from the stands. Always a dramatic and fun event
