The Ted Reeve Hockey Association House League is the foundation of our hockey program and is open to children at every skill level. From superstar to just learning to skate, house league offers a less competitive environment than Select. House league directors and coaches aim to develop team players who respect their peers, understand the game and play it with heart.
The Ted Reeve Hockey Association house league is a great way to introduce your budding superstar to our national pastime and carry on a Toronto East end tradition. In fact, we have many multi-generational families that all played or volunteered at Ted Reeve going back 65 years!
Age Divisions for 2019/2020
Your player’s birth year will determine their hockey division. We combine minor and major years together in one division.
|TYKE (Initiation)||2013, 2014, 2015|
|NOVICE (Minor Novice/Novice)||2012, 2011|
|ATOM (Minor Atom/Atom)||2010, 2009|
|PEEWEE (Minor Peewee/Peewee)||2008, 2007|
|BANTAM (Minor Bantam/Bantam)||2006, 2005|
|MIDGET (Minor Midget/Midget)||2004, 2003, 2002|
We offer an initiation program for 4, 5 and 6 year olds that runs for 1 hour sessions on Sunday mornings between 7 am and 10 am. Players are introduced to the principles of hockey shooting, passing, and skating in a 1/2 ice format in a relaxed and fun environment run by professional instructors. Skills and drills are followed by a short scrimmage.
Our Novice program runs on Saturday mornings between 7 am and 10:30 am and uses a half-ice format as mandated by Hockey Canada. Players play their games using half the ice in order to increase stick handling and puck skills. There are also optional one hour practices run by a professional instructor on alternating Monday nights from 6 pm — 8 pm that focus on hockey skills and drills.
In the 2018/2019 hockey season the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) implemented a half ice program that affected Minor Novice division players. All minor hockey associations were required to switch to a half ice format for their Tyke and Novice programs. (Our Tyke program already followed this format). This format change aligned with the Hockey Canada modified ice mandate which will come into effect for the 2019/2020 hockey season in which all Novice programming will be half ice.
The goal of switching to half ice is to modify Novice programming to be more age appropriate. Players will be practicing and playing games on half the ice surface in an effort to promote players’ stick handling, skating, passing, and shooting skills before they progress to play on a full ice surface at 8 years of age and above.
The Ted Reeve Hockey Association supports this initiative and last season we purchased the necessary equipment to fulfill the requirements of the program.
