The 2011-2012 season marked a turnaround for the Waterloo Warriors. Goaltender Rebecca Bouwhuis was recognized as the OUA Rookie of the Year. In her freshman season, she logged the second most minutes among OUA goalies. Her 584 saves ranked second, along with her .933 save percentage. She would rank third in the OUA in goals against average with 1.95, and in wins, with 9, respectively. Bouwhuis was the first Warriors player to earn Rookie of the Year. In addition, she was named an OUA First-Team All-Star, and a member of the 2012 OUA All-Rookie team.
After the 2010-11 campaign, the Warriors boasted only four wins, and finished 20 points out of a playoff spot. The Warriors won ten games in 2011-12, and finished tied for the final playoff spot. In a tiebreaker situation, the Warriors were unable to qualify for the postseason. As a first year head coach, Shaun Reagan won the 2012 OUA Coach of the Year award.
