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 without full C.S.A. approved equipment, including a BNQ neck guard, shin guards, shoulder pads, hockey gloves and a full-face mask. All players receive a team sweater and socks. The new CMHA guidelines state that all players must now wear a mandatory mouthguard as part of their equipment.
SUNDAY HOCKEY SKILLS
The League will offer a skills program to registered players only, in the tyke, minor novice, novice and atom divisions, during the season. An email fully explaining the program will be mailed out in September 2017.
Children born in 2013 and 2012 are eligible to play in the Mite Division. This division, which plays on Sunday afternoons at Baycrest Arena, consists of three classes 11:30a.m.- 2:15 p.m. The early class (11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.) is intended for children born in 2013 and the latter two classes (12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. & 1:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.) are divided up based on skills NOT by convenience. Placements are at the discretion of the instructors. The season consists of instructional skating and hockey with professional instructors.

The Select Division of ARHA provides an additional opportunity for house league players to play hockey in a more challenging and competitive setting. Tryouts for the Select Teams take place in May 2017. Further information concerning our Select program, including a full schedule of tryouts will be emailed in April 2017. If you have any questions concerning the program you are welcome to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The League is looking for volunteers for the positions of convenor, coach, trophies, equipment, banquet and general help. Please consider volunteering your time and indicate it on the application form!
Parents are advised that at each game, in case of emergency, there must be someone responsible for your child, other than the coach. Failure to adhere to this policy jeopardizes your child’s continued participation in our League. As well, there is a space on the registration form to indicate the main contact for the child if there is a separation or divorce in the family.
There is a space on the application to fill in if there is a health condition that the League should be aware of for your child.
In order to promote good sportsmanship and fun, we try to ensure that the house league teams are as balanced as possible. Accordingly, we reserve the right to trade players between teams, in a manner designed to achieve a competitive balance.
Players who miss more than 3 games owing to conflicting commitments (e.g. other sports or activities) 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.
The policy of the League continues to be that no games or practices will be scheduled between Friday and Saturday night, and on recognized holidays. The League reserves the right, however, to schedule optional practices on certain holidays that fall within its regular hockey schedule.
You may contact the registrar at email@example.com if you have any questions.
