About NAHC

Hockey has a deep history within Aboriginal communities across Canada. With legends like Ted Nolan, Fred Sasakamoose, George Armstrong, Bryan Trottier and young guns like Carey Price, Jordin Tootoo and Cody McCormick blazing trails for Aboriginal hockey players across Canada, hockey continues to be one of the most popular sports for Aboriginal youth.

The National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC), founded by the Aboriginal Sport Circle and sanctioned by Hockey Canada, provides a forum for elite Bantam and Midget aged Aboriginal hockey players from across Canada showcasing the athletic abilities of athletes from across the country, while also fostering cultural unity and pride. An event held annually since 2001, the NAHC also serves as a focal point for grassroots and regional Aboriginal hockey development.
