HBHA masters addition (ages 37+ team)


The HBHA gets serious about its Masters program

The ISBHF World Masters tournament has become much stronger since its inception just over 6 years ago. The tournament is for players over 37 years old, who technically no longer compete on their national men`s team. The HBHA has shown great heart and determination during each of the three previous tournaments; however, it was not able to place among the top teams for medals. The Masters team would like to raise its performance to match the men’s program which has grown to become a force on the international stage competing at the level of the giants in the game.

With this in mind, the HBHA is very excited to name its new head coach, Peter Chiotis, who will take on a significant leadership role in recruiting, organizing and ultimately leading the bench in actual tournament play, which will take place in the summer of 2018. Peter has an excellent reputation amongst the Quebec ball hockey community and has built up his local team, the Icons, with an impressive roster of players. It will be his first experience with the HBHA program and in this regard will be supported by a committee of players tasked to help with team organization, fundraising and recruiting Greek ball hockey players across Canada and beyond, to build the strongest team yet for the program. This committee will be comprised of John Bolanakis, Costa Stavriadis and Patrick Lapointe Tanos, who all played in the last Masters tournament in Banff. There are many leaders and veterans beyond this group that will also play a key role; however, it was important for the HBHA to have a separate group of individuals not involved in management or coaching of the men's team, to focus solely on the Masters team. In this regard if you have any suggestions, comments or would like to join as a player, please contact Peter at  or at 514-969-6982


Welcome Addition ! 

The HBHA would like to welcome Paul Barbas to its coaching staff.

Paul will be our new defensive coach and will have a great crop of young defenseman to work with and prepare them for the 2017 World Championships in the Czech Republic.

We are extremely happy to have Paul aboard; his knowledge of the game will surely benefit our players.

Paul has been around this game for over 35 years, whether coaching, playing, scouting or managing he is a true ball hockey fan and his love of the game is apparent. He has also played in multiple Provincial and National championships and in 2012 he joined the HBHA.

He was a very important player for us in both the 2013 World Championships and again in 2015 where he had a chance to play with his three sons and nephew. He helped Greece to its best ever result, an impressive 4th place in the world. He also played in the 2012, 2014 and 2016 Masters tournaments.

Paul decided to hang them up as a player on the international stage, but we are honored to have him aboard as a coach. Along with the rest of the coaching staff he is ready and excited to lead our team in Pardubice Czech Republic in 2017.

On behalf of the staff, players and members of the HBHA welcome aboard Paul.
