GEORGE BELL HOCKEY ASSOCIATION

The George Bell Hockey Association (GBHA) is a community-based hockey association located in west Toronto.  The GBHA is committed to developing safe and inclusive hockey programs for children and youth aged 4 to 20 that are fun and support skills development.  We aim to make hockey welcoming and accessible to all—regardless of ability, cultural background or economic circumstances—to create lifelong engagement in sport and the community.

The GBHA House League hockey season runs from October through April. Our enrollment is limited by the amount of ice available to us at George Bell Arena.

HOUSE LEAGUE HOCKEY

The GBHA has more than 1000 house league players every season. In order to promote participation and fun at every level we have tiered most divisions. The goal of the GBHA is to develop and maintain fun, safe, fair and inclusive hockey programs for all players - boys & girls between the ages of 4 and 20.  Our youngest divisions (U7 & U9) play cross ice hockey

SELECT HOCKEY

The Select Hockey program gives our more skilled players the opportunity to play competitive hockey against other organizations within the North York Hockey League in arenas across the city. Over the last few years the GBHA has had a very successful Select program.  In each division the organization generally fields two - four select teams.

COMPETITIVE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

In addition to House League, players in the CPD will participate in 1 or 2 additional practices per week and will play about one weekly development game against other CDP teams from neighbouring hockey associations. More Fun. More Games. More Ice Time during Games. More Skill Development.  More Fun!

U7 INITIATION LEARN TO PLAY PROGRAM

This program is unique because it begins with a "Learn to Play" format before moving into team game format.

The program is divided into two division levels allowing all players to enjoy some success in game situations as they continue to learn to skate and acquire basic hockey skills. GBHA Instructors support players and parents to provide a terrific learning environment.
