The GBHA has more than 950 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 (Tyke & Novice play cross ice hockey


Our 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. Last season, the GBHA fielded more than 30 teams. The NYHL is open to house league select teams in the Greater Toronto area and operates under the umbrella of the GTHL.

Girls Only Skills Program


The GBHA and its coaches offer bi-weekly skills sessions to all levels except Under 18 & Juvenile. These sessions are offered at no additional cost. In addition, we may offer specific Girls Only and Goalie sessions. These sessions will be confirmed at the beginning of the season. In addition we annually rent outdoor ice at High Park for team practices during the Outdoor season.


The Tyke 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.



The GBHA is ahead of the game when it comes to implementing Hockey Canada’s move to cross-ice hockey for its youngest players. This weekend was the first using our new Cross Ice Board System for our Novice Division House League. The boards allow two cross ice games to be played simultaneously – or to have…
