About the Brampton Canadettes: The Brampton Canadettes provides a safe environment where our girls are encouraged to be the best they can be. Part of being the best includes not only on-ice performance but performance in the classroom and in their community.
We strive to instill the virtues of leadership, self-confidence and sportsmanship in all of our players and volunteers within the organization. The Brampton Canadettes are committed to creating a great hockey experience for all of its players. Our mandate is to teach our players and volunteers valuable lessons through hockey that they can also apply to their lives away from the rink.
