On April 24th, 2019 the Membership voted in favor of an amalgamation with the North Bay Minor Hockey Association which will see over 800 kids form the renamed Association to North Bay Minor Hockey Association.  The long history of West Ferris Minor Hockey Association will always be the foundation of our organization as we strive to provide an excellent experience for all our current and future players.
