Panther Cubs (U7) ages 4,5,6

A program for our youngest hockey players designed to teach the basic fundamentals of hockey.  No skating experience necessary, however some very basic skating ability is helpful.  Follows Hockey Canada Pathways .  Two ice times per week – one Saturday and one Sunday from mid September – end of March. Ice locations: Aurora and/or Newmarket


House League Program (U9 – U18)

For players aged 7 to 17. Teams are coached by volunteer parents, and the weekly schedule consists of one game on Saturday and one practice on Sunday, with the exception of the U18 division which only play one game per week – Sunday evenings.

Game and practice locations: Aurora and/or Newmarket.

The season runs for approximately 25 weeks, beginning mid September and finishing at the end of March.  There will be no hockey on Thanksgiving weekend, Christmas Break, and the first weekend of March Break.

Players do not need to have previous hockey experience, but skating experience is an asset.  Divisions are balanced to ensure that each team has a mix of players of every level of skill and experience.

U9 Hockey – Half Ice Program

Hockey Canada stipulates that all players under 9 years of age play their games on a modified ice surface no larger than half the size of a typical hockey rink. Teams will start the season with half-ice games and move to full-ice games part way through the season.

The change is designed to promote player skill development by increasing the amount of time each player touches, passes, and shoots the puck. For a full explanation of the Hockey Canada policy, visit


Friend Requests

We do our best to accommodate friend requests, which are important for social as well as practical (i.e. carpooling) reasons. However, in order to balance teams within each division, we can honour only one mutual (reciprocal) friend request per player.  A Friend request form must be signed by both families and submitted to [email protected] prior to September 1st.



House League Goalie Policy

There shall be no dedicated goalies in the U9 and U11 divisions. Teams will rotate players weekly so that each player plays goalie at least once per season.

U13 and above may have a dedicated goalie. All efforts will be made
to identify these players and spread them out amongst all teams equally. If at any time a player wishes to try goalie they must be given that opportunity.

Every house league team is provided with a full set of goalie equipment, and we encourage all players to play at least one game in goal.

DS Program

House league players looking to take part in additional games and tournaments played at a more competitive level can try out in November for our DS Program, an extra-fee program offered in most divisions. Click here for further information
