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 GBHA Division Convenors hold assessment skates at the beginning of the season in order to create fair and balanced teams. Though we occasionally receive requests for players to play with one another, please understand that such requests make it difficult to balance teams.
Regular attendance at House League games is imperative to ensure that all kids have an enjoyable season. It is extremely difficult to balance teams if regular attendance by all players is not enforced.
During registration, please indicate whether your player is a goalie - it is extremely important for successful team building. In the U9 & U11 divisions, players are rotated through the Goalie position and equipment is provided. In the older divisions, it is necessary to know goalie count before determining team numbers.
CODE OF CONDUCT:
We expect all players, coaches and parents are to abide by our code of conduct. Our Codes of Conduct are available on our Rules & Regulations page. In addition, one parent from every family registered in organized hockey must take the Respect in Sport Parent program. More information on the program is on our Registration and Home pages.
Select players must be registered as House League players and attendance is mandatory in order to remain eligible to play on their Select team.
The GBHA with our Skills Instructors provide weekly skills sessions for all levels U7-U13.
In addition we also provide weekly Skills sessions during the outdoor season at the High Park Outdoor rink.
These sessions are offered at no additional cost.
GOALIE SKILLS PROGRAMS
The GBHA with our Goalie Skills Instructors provide weekly Goalie skills sessions for all levels U7-U13. These exceptional sessions are Sunday mornings at McCormick Arena.
A GBHA season can't happen without the support of its parent volunteers. Our volunteers are Coaches, Assistants Coaches, Trainers and Managers.
If you would like to volunteer in some capacity, please indicate so on your child’s registration or contact us directly.
We are currently seeking parents who are willing to Convene some of our House League Divisions.
Please note that The Greater Toronto Hockey League (the “GTHL”) has made it mandatory for all coaches and volunteers to have a police criminal record check. All must submit a check at the beginning of the season and provide proof of the results to the GBHA administration.
DIVISIONS & FEES 2020-21 SEASON
The GBHA depends on sponsorships to offset costs. We wish to support neighbourhood businesses and members of our community.
Please indicate your interest in being a sponsor on your child’s registration. The cost to sponsor a House League team is $650.00. Your logo will be printed on a set of team sweaters and will be posted on our website.
There are additional opportunities to sponsor other programs at the the GBHA including our Annual GBHA Hockey Tournament and our Girls Development and Goalie & Skills programs.
