Since 1947 we have successfully organized recreational ice hockey for the children of Oshawa.
Oshawa N.A.S.C. Hockey is an operating committee under the governing body of N.A.S.C (Neighbourhood Association Sports Committee). N.A.S.C. is a sub-committee of the O.C.C.N.A. (Oshawa Central Council of Neighbourhood Associations).
Oshawa N.A.S.C Hockey has been incredibly successful and has ran so efficiently, it has often been mistaken for those programs offered by the City of Oshawa.
In fact, our learn hockey programs are so well received, they're "often imitated, never duplicated" . We pride ourselves in being the first and the leader in Oshawa in "grassroots" hockey development.
Oshawa N.A.S.C. Hockey is operated solely by the volunteers in our community, for the children of Oshawa.

OSHAWA N.A.S.C. HOCKEY - ABOUT US
As a proud member of OMHA, Oshawa N.A.S.C. Hockey was Oshawa’s first house league established in 1947. As a sub-committee of the Neighbourhood Association of Sports Committees, N.A.S.C. Hockey was based on “community” and was formed representing the 20 Neighbourhood park associations that even today, geographically cover the entire city of Oshawa.
The focus of the hockey program is to promote a fun, wholesome, recreational house league ice hockey environment not only for the players involved, but for the coaches, managers, parents and league officials.
Oshawa N.A.S.C. Hockey plays an essential role in the City of Oshawa. Their instructional programs are unique and are second-to-none in the Durham Region. In fact, their programs have been run so successfully, they’re often mistaken for those offered by the city itself. N.A.S.C. is proud to be the first, and the leader in hockey instruction in the city. As a compliment to their successes, their programs are “Often imitated, Never duplicated”. Over the last five years of the organization has experienced an extraordinary uplift. The introduction of their kid focused programming has received incredible results. N.A.S.C. Hockey adopted the slogan; “Making Hockey Fun – Through Teaching Confidence”. The philosophy is simple: “Skating is a key factor to enjoying this game that we love. Hockey is only fun when you’re playing the sport, not having to work at it.”
Through this vision, N.A.S.C. Hockey has built their successes and developed the programming offered to be truly “kid-focused”. If you can’t skate, we’ll teach you! The league offers a 4 and 5 year-old hockey school aimed at those players just starting out. Players graduating from this program advance into the N.A.S.C./Spirit Sportswear “Super Six” Instructional Hockey program.
In the “Super Six” program, all players are placed onto 6-year-old “only” teams. The Saturday program consists of bi-weekly (1 week game / 1 week practice) sessions complete with referees and timekeeper to truly teach those 6-year old players the “game”. The goal of the program is to continue building confidence skills, and introduces positioning and rules of the game (off-sides, icing, face-offs, etc.) to prepare those players who will graduate to the Novice level where they begin playing organized games on a regular basis.
New this year is the “Super Novice” program. In addition to their regular program, the players will be scheduled “every-other-week” to attend an additional structured “hockey skills program”. This offering is a continued natural progression from our hockey schools. We are unique. We’re the only house league in Oshawa to offer structured, “kid-focused” certified instruction included with your registration.
N.A.S.C. Hockey offers programming from 4 years to 17 years of age. Program features: Power skating, goalie clinics, coach mentorship, and select (all-star).
N.A.S.C. Hockey is proud to be the recipient of the Durham Parent Platinum Award.
NASC hockey plays games, runs clinics and practices out of Harman Park Arena and the Legends Centre.
