CLWHL Season Cancelled

Mar 13, 2020

As you know, the situation due to COVID-19 has been changing rapidly. We were just alerted from our HR department at Canada Life, as well as from the Canada Life Social Club, that all Winnipeg Social Club events are postponed and/or cancelled immediately until further notice. This effects all events currently running and those scheduled in the future until such time as the company releases an update with a decision that asserts that employees are able to return to normal working duties.

Our semi-final games tonight, as well as the final game and wind-up at WWC on March 20th will not take place. We know everyone understands that this is necessary at this time and we appreciate your cooperation!

We’ll be in touch with any further details as we receive them. Please continue to reach out to your captains with any concerns.

New CLWHL Logo Design Contest

Jan 31, 2020

Hello everyone!

As you may have heard, the Canada Life Men's Hockey League just had a contest for a new logo for their league as their league name, like ours, recently changed from Great-West Life to Canada Life. Judy Wilson's son, Landon Stewart, was the winner of the men's league contest and he created a fantastic logo! Congrats to your son, Judy!

With the company name change from Great-West Life to Canada Life and with both hockey leagues now being referred to as Canada Life leagues, we thought it would be a good idea for the women's league to create their very own CLWHL logo to be used in the future on new jerseys and apparel.

Here are the contest rules:

1. The contest is open to any player currently in the CLWHL league and your logo design submission should only be sent to Jenn and Sheryl.
2. Logos can be designed to include the lettering CLWHL but please do not use the words "Canada Life" or incorporate the new Canada Life company logo into your design.
3. Logos must be created using MS Word, Paint, etc.
4. The conveners will review all submissions and pick three finalists that best represent the league.
5. The final three designs will be sent to all players in the league for a vote.
6. The new CLWHL logo will be unveiled at the wind-up on Friday, March 20th.
7. The plan is to purchase 1 - potentially 2 - sets of jerseys with the new logo to be used for the 2020-2021 season. All subsequent jersey sets with the new logo will be purchased as the budget permits.

Contest closes on Friday, February 14th so get those ideas submitted now! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity so don't let your fantastic design idea go to waste! You could soon be seeing your very own design every Friday night FOREVER!!!

Hockey Helps the Homeless

Dec 5, 2019

Thank you to everyone who bought 50/50 tickets in support of Hockey Helps the Homeless! The tournament is on Friday, December 6th at Seven Oaks Arena and features our very own Kari Tkach and Shannon Buoncore! It should be a lot of fun to watch them skate with the Canada Life team.

We were able to raise a total of $324.00 with the 50/50 draw! Half of that money went to Kari and Shannon ($81.00 each) to help put towards their fundraising goal of $500.00.

$162.00 went to our lucky winner, Wendy Liski, from Team Orange! Congratulations, Wendy!!!

Thanks again for all your support, everyone!

Week #8 Preview

Nov 15, 2019

Things in the CLWHL are about to get more intense tonight! But how can they possibly get more intense, you ask?!? Well... everyone will be facing a team they have not yet played this season - Orange will face Yellow, Blue will match up with Purple, and Green will play Red.

The standings will certainly change drastically again with these new match-ups! How will your favourite team perform on the ice? You'll have to be there to find out!!! Bring your family, bring your friends and cheer on the teams!

Week #7 Preview

Nov 8, 2019

As mentioned last week, the regular season standings have changed once again! Currently, there is a tie for first place between Team Purple and Team Blue, but teams Red and Green are not far behind and are hungry to claim the top spot. However, a wise captain once said, "it's all practice until the playoffs"...

After three fantastic games last week, this week will see new rivalries formed when Team Purple takes on Team Green, Team Red faces Team Orange and Team Yellow plays Team Blue.

Come on down to the WWC and cheer on the teams!

Week #5 Recap, Week #6 Preview and HDIC

Oct 30, 2019

Can you believe we're already a month into the CLWHL season?!? Based on the current standings, Team Red is the team to beat, but we all know how quickly these stats can change. Last Friday, Team Purple delivered the Red team's first loss of the season by winning 3-1. Team Yellow got their second tie game of the season against Team Green who also got their second tie. Finally, it was a close game between Team Orange and Team Blue with Blue being victorious.

This Friday, top team Red looks to win against second-placed Blue to extend their lead in the standings. Following that game, Team Green will face Team Orange in an explosive battle. Lastly, Team Yellow competes with Team Purple for the "W".

Something to consider: don't sabotage your team by eating too much Halloween candy this Thursday! Or perhaps the extra sugar rush will give you some momentum?! Choose wisely!

Hockey Day in Canada: We have confirmed a date for Hockey Day in Canada! It will be held on Saturday, January 11th. Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details!

Week #3 Cancellation and Week #4 Preview

Oct 18, 2019

Hope everyone made it through last week's nasty storm! As you all know, we had to cancel all games. We won't be rescheduling the games at this point.

Moving on to tonight's games, we have Team Blue up against Team Green to start off the evening. Next up is Team Yellow hosting Team Red. Finally, the night wraps up with Team Orange taking on Team Purple in a face-off of the league conveners!


Week #2 Preview

Oct 4, 2019

An explosive night is in the works for week 2 of the CLWHL!

First up, Team Green will face Team Purple in a match-up that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Coming off a tie game last week, Team Purple have their sights set on winning. But with Team Green also looking for their first win of the season, expect that this game will be a tough battle!

Team Yellow is up next against the Red team and everyone is wondering who will be victorious this week. Keep in mind, these two teams will meet up again in only two weeks for what will likely be a heated re-match!

Wrapping up the games for the night are Team Blue and Team Orange. Both teams are known to be "fun" in their own ways but you will have to be there to see who actually has the most FUN out on the ice tonight!

See you there!

Week #1 Preview

Sep 27, 2019

Hopefully everyone is ready for what will be an epic battle during the first full week of games in the 2019-2020 CLWHL season!

First up, Team Red will face Team Blue. New captains, Becky and Chantal, will put their Blue team to the test against a strong Red team. How will it end? You'll have to be there to find out (or wait until the website is updated with the results)!

Game #2 sees Team Green against Team Orange. Will the Green Machines win out against a pulpy Orange team? Or will the Oranges take the Greens to the juicer? Be there or be square!

Finally, the last game of the night is a match between Team Purple and Team Yellow. Will one team come out on top? Perhaps the game will be a tie? Who will end up with the most penalty minutes?!? All these questions AND MORE will be answered tonight.

Let the games begin!

First Game - Friday, September 27th

Sep 23, 2019
