Our Team

The Pelham Panthers Hockey Club is a junior team focused on player development and bringing a competitive brand of hockey to the community. The new ownership is deeply committed to having an exemplary hockey operation with close ties to local businesses.

The Town of Pelham has built a brand new, 1000-seat community centre and the Panthers are proud to be the prime tenant.

The Pelham Panthers play a 50-game regular season schedule and practice four times per week. We have a balanced and demanding coaching staff, who have experience in coaching several NHL-drafted players, as well as an elite athletic trainer, who works with the players both in and out of season.

Our Hometown

The Town of Pelham is a great community in the centre of the Niagara Region in Ontario, Canada. The town is in close proximity to Brock University and Niagara College, as well as high schools including E. L. Crossley and Centennial.

Our Arena

Opening its doors in 2018, the new Meridian Community Centre (MCC) in Pelham is a fully accessible, 143,000 square-foot multi-purpose facility. It is comprised of a twin-pad hockey area, two gymnasiums, a large multi-purpose space, indoor walking track, community meeting rooms and more.
