House League registration fees cover a player’s jerseys, socks, ice fees, refs, timekeepers, our home tournament, and player insurance. As well as other association costs such as coach and trainer certification, insurance, and administration costs.


The PGHA wants ALL children, regardless of family or financial situation to have the opportunity to play hockey. 

Should your financial situation become a barrier to having your daughter play hockey, there are a number of foundations in Ontario to help families pay for minor hockey. Please visit our Financial Assistance page for more information

Registration Fees are directly related to all operating expenses budgeted for an entire PGHA Season.  Should hockey be cancelled or postponed during the upcoming season the Executive will review fixed expenses and determine appropriate refunds.

This will not happen until after the season has been considered cancelled or finished. No request will be necessary in this event, we will post the proposed refund amounts, reasoning, and any associated links on the website. You must be in good standing to qualify for a refund.

If withdrawing prior to the start of hockey there will be a $30 fee to cover registration fees and administrative fees.

Up to Oct 31st... If there is a waitlist in the division and the spot can be filled a refund may be provided based on the amount paid to date less $200 to cover credit card processing, registration system fees, administrative costs, player insurance, jersey/socks, and ice times in October. If there is not a player on the waitlist a refund will not be issued.

After November 1st, any requests for a refund must be due to extenuating circumstances and approved by the PGHA executive.

The House League program typically starts after Thanksgiving and runs until March Break.  Depending on ice allocation the start date may be moved forward to the end of September. 

Generally, the House League hockey program operates on Saturdays & Sundays. The PGHA will strive to have House League ice times consistent through the season, but there may be circumstances on particular weekends that make this difficult to follow.   While we won’t know for sure until we finalize our yearly ice contract with the City, we try our best to keep the times consistent with the previous year.

House League Registration typically includes one game and one practice per week for U13 and below.  U15/U18 typically play three games every two week with no practices.  Ice allocation has not yet been finalized so this is a tentative outline.

To make sure we keep our players safe, we require you to provide all the following items:

  • Helmet (REP must be white)
  • Skates
  • Neck Guard
  • Hockey Gloves (REP must be black)
  • Elbow Pads
  • Hockey Pants
  • Shin Guard
  • Jill

It’s important that your child’s equipment be in good condition, comfortable, and properly fitted in order to avoid injury.

Tryouts for REP teams typically take place in the spring.  U13, U15 and U18 tryouts have been completed for the 2022-2023 season. 

Further information regarding tryouts for U11 and below will follow the OWHA Player Pathway and will be available once the OWHA provides further direction.

Absolutely in our House League program for all ages below U11 (generally U13 and up, we tend of have dedicated goalies for each team). For the younger ages, we provide each team with a set of goalie equipment, and believe in rotating the goaltending position on a weekly basis, allowing all players the opportunity to try goaltending.   

The continued success of the PGHA House League Program is very dependent on the strength of our volunteers and we are always looking for new people willing to contribute their time to our various programs. You do not need to be a hockey expert to help us with our programs. We are always in need of good Coaching candidates, but we also need people who have good organizational skills and above all a passion to help and work with children.

If you are interested in helping us in any of the many roles we need help with, please complete House League Volunteer Request form or contact one of our Executive members to discuss.  

This must be a reciprocal request, to make this request please complete the Reciprocal Request Form

As with most sports, kids’ hockey is different than the professional game you may watch on television. Our association is committed to keeping your child safe. We do this by having:


  • strict rules for equipment and behaviour
  • a strong emphasis on teaching skills over contact
  • no bodychecking allowed

  •  trained game officials who enforce league rules

  • certified coaches and trainers for every team


We believe hockey is a sport for life, where positive team experiences are always the priority.

Don’t worry we haven’t forgotten about you.  You will be contacted sometime in mid to late September by the association to let you know what your assigned times are for House League. 

Keep checking the PGHA website and social media over the summer as we’ll keep you posted of any news regarding our House League program.
