The Bulldogs Hockey Club (formerly Grosse Pointe Hockey Association) was formed in 1962 and has been a community fixture for providing area youth an opportunity to participate in an exciting, challenging sport while emphasizing camaraderie, sportsmanship and fun.
We are a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization with 1000+ members and 14 teams participating in Travel, House, and American Development Model (ADM) programs.
BHC provides a competitive environment of learning and good sportsmanship at all skill levels for both boys and girls in the sport of hockey. We are fortunate to have former hockey professionals, college, and amateur players instruct our children in the game and serve as positive role models. Our volunteers are the backbone of the association, and we are thankful for their commitment and dedication to our children and the great sport of hockey!
The Bulldogs Hockey Club (formerly the Grosse Pointe Hockey Association) initiated the Jack McSorley College Scholarship Award in 1994. It is named after the late Jack McSorley who died before the age of 21. Jack spent 12 years in the association as either a player or referee and embodied everything we hope to teach kids about athletics and academics. On March 11th at Noon, we will acknowledge and celebrate scholar athletes from the Bulldogs Hockey Club at the Eastside Hockey Foundation ice arena.
