HOUSE LEAGUE POSTPONED UNTIL JANUARY 2021
Overview

Program Info

Making new friends and connections to last a lifetime!

Welcome to your home for hockey!

Since 1965 North Toronto has provided a fun, safe and inclusive house league hockey program that is open to players of all ages and skill levels.

Our house league teams are carefully constructed after several evaluation sessions and rebalanced if required to ensure the most even competition possible. Meanwhile, players aged 10 and under can maximize their development during the additional weekly skills session included in the registration fee.

Most important, House League is a fantastic way for everyone to get – and stay – involved in our community as players and parents alike are guaranteed to make new friends and connections that often last for the rest of their lives.

In addition to games, all House League Divisions U13 and younger include a weekly skills session run by the paid, professional instructors of the Canadian Pro Hockey Clinic.

(House League registration is required for all players who intend on trying out for a competitive team in the Competitive Development Stream or Select programs.)

What are "Competitive Development Stream" and "Select"?

House League players born 2014-2012 are eligible to try out for Competitive Development Stream teams and players born 2011 and later may try out for Select competitive teams.

What are the benefits of House League?

In addition, games take place on mostly local rinks with predictable, family-friendly schedules which is great for caregivers and siblings.
