House League Essential Information
Last season over 700 players participated in our house league. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for friendly competition, promote good sportsmanship, team play, skill development, love of hockey and of course social interaction both on the ice and in the stands. As result we have an equal ice time policy entitling all players, regardless of skill level, to equal ice time to the greatest extent possible.

Please note that all House League and Select Divisions play non-contact hockey.

DIVISIONS & APPROXIMATE ICE TIMES:

*Note: These times are tentative and may be changed to accommodate actual registration numbers in each division.

All Divisions (except Midget & Bantam) will additionally play some games on Sunday mornings.

SAFETY & UNIFORMS:  Safety concerns are paramount in hockey. It is mandatory that protective equipment be worn at all times. No player will be allowed on the ice or on the bench without full C.S.A. approved equipment, including a certified neck guard and a helmet with a full facemask. All players will receive a team sweater and matching socks.

EQUALIZATION TRADES:  In order to promote participation and fun we try to ensure that the house league teams are as even as possible. Accordingly we reserve the right to trade players between teams, in a manner designed to achieve a competitive balance. We try to conclude trades before the December break. We realize that most players do not wish to be traded, but please cooperate with the convenors when trades are made. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT ALL PLAYERS, WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF THE SPONSOR'S CHILD MAY BE TRADED. THIS INCLUDES THE CHILDREN OF COACHES AND CONVENERS.

TEAM REQUESTS:  We occasionally receive requests for a player to be placed on the same team as another player. Such requests often make it difficult to balance the teams initially or to make appropriate trades. Carpool considerations will apply only to registrants who must travel great distances to reach the arena.

GOALIES:  As we sometimes have fewer goalies than teams, it is now a condition of registration that players chosen as Select goalies must play goal for their assigned team in House League in order to maintain their position as goalie on their Select Team .If there still are fewer goalies than teams in a division then all goalies in that division will be required to commit to play for any teams without a goalie on a rotational basis. These decisions are solely the Conveners to make and a schedule will be made for each goalie to follow for the season. The goalies in that division will meet with the Convenors prior to the season to arrange the schedule.

Note: Goalies at the Atom level and above are expected to provide their own equipment. Goalie equipment will be provided for Squirt and Novice Division goalies.

ATTENDANCE:  We realize that kids sometimes miss house league games due to illness, injury or other "exceptional" circumstances. However, missing games for other reasons is against our attendance policy as stated below and is unacceptable. Everyone has a specific reason why attending the house league games are difficult, but it makes it particularly hard for the conveners to balance the teams and for the coaches to run their teams when attendance is sporadic.

Players who miss more than three games owing to conflicting commitments (e.g. other sports or activities) or without proper notice, may risk suspension without refund. Such players may also be denied re-registration for the following season so that more dedicated players will get the opportunity to play.

Select players must play in House League games in order to be eligible to play in Select games. Select players who neglect their commitment to House League will not be allowed to play in Select games.

PRESEASON HOCKEY SKILLS:  A skills program for Squirt, Novice, and possibly Atom, subject to availability, will be offered, starting in September. An e-mail fully explaining the program and application form will be sent out by separate mailing during the summer.

PRACTICES:  For players in the Squirt, Novice and Atom Divisions we offer Sunday morning skill sessions throughout the season.
