Program Information

Ted Reeve Hockey Association’s 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. All house league games and practices are located in Ted Reeve arena.

Ted Reeve Hockey Association’s 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 have played or volunteered at Ted Reeve going back 65 years!

Our Programs

U7 (Initiation formerly Tyke)

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.  We also offer 30-40 minute skill development sessions every other week on Saturday mornings between 7 am and 9 am in the Bubble next to Ted Reeve arena.  These sessions are run by a professional instructor.

 

U8 (Formerly Minor Novice) and U9 (Formerly Novice)

Our U8 and U9 program runs on Saturday mornings between 7:00 am and 11:00 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 one hour practices run by a professional instructor on alternating Monday nights from 5 pm to 6 pm (U8) and 6 pm to 7 pm (U9) that focus on hockey skills and drills. Please click the box below to read about Hockey Canada’s U9 Half-Ice Mandate.

U8 & U9 Half-ice Hockey Canada Mandate

In the 2018/2019 hockey season the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) implemented a half ice program that affected U9 players. All minor hockey associations were required to switch to a half ice format for their U7 and U9 programs. (Our U7 program already followed this format). This format change aligned with the Hockey Canada modified ice mandate which came into effect for the 2019/2020 hockey season in which all U9 programming used half ice.

The goal of switching to half ice is to modify U9 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 purchased the necessary equipment to fulfill the requirements of the program.

For more information on this initiative and its implementation, please click on the following links to access the GTHL and OHF’s websites which outline the mandate and provide answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Ted Reeve Hockey Association reserves the right to modify or suspend our programs at any time due to circumstances beyond our control.  This would include, but is not limited to:
