About Ball Hockey Quebec

As its name suggests, Ball Hockey Quebec is the organization that oversees ball hockey in Quebec. Its mandate also includes other denominations and variants of the sport such as Dek hockey and cosom hockey, and covers all its formats: 5 against 5, 4 against 4 and 3 against 3. Our mission is to evaluate and promote hockey- ball in Quebec, by promoting the participation of players in an inclusive manner in a positive and safe environment, both at the recreational and competitive levels.

Ball hockey is the direct descendant of street hockey or boot hockey which has been played informally since the turn of the 20th century. In 1995, the Quebec Ball Hockey Association (AHBQ) was founded to provide a structure for this award-winning sport.

In its first year of existence, the AHBQ sends a men’s team to the National Championship of the Canadian Ball Hockey Association and wins its very first gold medal. Since then, the sport has experienced strong growth and the enthusiasm does not seem to be waning. In 2019, the AHBQ gets a makeover and becomes Hockey-Balle Québec.

As of today, Quebec men’s teams have won 33 gold medals, all divisions combined (but more qualified Div: A: 14, Div. B: 7, Div. C: 9, Div. D: 3). Among the women, despite a much younger program, they won 5 gold medals (div. A: 2, div. B: 3). To this list are added many silver and bronze medals won over the years.

Hockey-balle Québec is the only Quebec association recognized by the Canadian Ball Hockey Association (www.cbha.com). The latter is an associate member of Hockey Canada and is part of the International Ball Hockey and Street Hockey Federation (www.isbhf.com).
