OSMHG to enter Local League as 1 year trial
As everyone is aware we sent a survey out to all members of the Owen Sound Minor Hockey Organization requesting their input as we continue to battle reductions in registration numbers. Over the past 5 years we have noticed a steady decline in the registration numbers to our program,  and now we have reached the point that providing a functional In-house House League is not possible (given the projected registration numbers for the 2016-17 season).

Response to the survey showed that the majority of our members (the ones that replied) would be in favour of altering our current format to a Local league as opposed to an In-house House league.

 

As a result of the survey,  for the 2016-17 season our organization will be entering into a Local League format for the Novice, Atom, Pee-Wee, Bantam and Midget Programs.  Our organization has applied to both the WOAA and the Georgian Bay programs and we will have a more definitive answer as to which program our participants will be participating in by early September.

 

The parameters in which a Local League program operates are different from our traditional In-House House League and our association is currently preparing for the alterations to the format.  Items such as Ice Allocations, Practices, Team and Bench Staff are all items that will need to be altered as we enter into this new era!

We will have additional information for all members of the program in Late August.

 

As an organization we would like to thank all of our members for your continued support as we continue to evolve our programs and continue to build the OSMHG brand and programs.

 

Please continue to check the website for additional details!

Connect Rehabilitation|Yoga|Fitness
CONNECT opened in May 2019 out of a need for MORE. More 1-on-1 time with our patients, more time learning about you and your goals, and more focus on doing the things that we know will help you in the long term. That meant creating a space that provided more than just the highest quality physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy services. It meant we needed a space where we could empower people to take active control of their health, and provide them with the specialized group fitness, yoga, and cycle classes that they needed to accomplish that. CONNECT is an enigma in both the healthcare world and the fitness world. We don't fit nicely into either box, but we know that the way that we bring the two together is going to help change the way we think about and manage our own health.

Owen Sound Subaru
Doug Cameron opened Owen Sound Subaru on November 1st, 1995. Doug was very impressed with the quality, capability, and reliability of Subaru vehicles and knew that they would be a perfect fit for the lifestyles of customers in the Grey Bruce areas. It took only three years for Doug to make the first expansion of his franchise and Subaru was moved into a new building in 1998. As the business continued to grow a third move was made in 2013 to the current home of Owen Sound Subaru. Owen Sound Subaru has an excellent selection of new Subaru models in stock to suit all your driving needs. We also carry a great selection of pre-owned vehicles, including Subaru models and a mixture of other makes. Our service department is well stocked with genuine Subaru parts and accessories and our factory tr
