ABOUT US

The Northwest Warriors Hockey Association’s story began in 2012 when the Westwood Warriors and the Crowchild Blackhawks hockey programs merged.  The two associations worked in partnership for 8 seasons before officially amalgamating to become the Northwest Warriors Hockey Association in 2021.

Northwest Warriors exist to provide an enjoyable, rewarding hockey experience to participants where they can develop a strong sense of community while growing socially, physically and emotionally.
