The RSL Islanders are the premier women’s U21 Junior (Intermediate AA) hockey club in the Rideau River / St. Lawrence region. Governed by the Rideau St. Lawrence Girls Hockey Association (RSGLHA), the RSL Islanders play in the Upper Canada Hockey Alliance (UCHA) women’s junior league, and are a member of the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA).
The team was established in the spring of 2018, committed to providing a tier-1 environment and opportunity for U21 women hockey players looking to challenge themselves, grow and compete at the highest level. Attracting players throughout the region, our program provides an exceptional hockey education, emphasizing a deep understanding of the game and player development that will allow them to excel at the next level and provide life-long skills, relationships and memories.
While an important objective of our program is to provide the development needed to compete at the collegiate/university level (for those players who have that as a goal), our primary focus is to produce high-performance individuals, by using hockey as the training ground for a high-achievement life. We judge our program on the life-success our alumni attain, the contributions they make to their communities and the mentorship they will provide for the next generation of leaders.
Our players represent the best of our community; they are pursuing their passion, learning what it takes to become high-performance individuals at the rink and away from it. We are extremely proud of them and are excited to watch them create a tradition of Islanders excellence.
We welcome you to contribute and become part of the RSL Islanders family, as a supporter at our games, or as a prospective player and in the near-future, as life-long Islanders alumni.
