INTRODUCING… the Halton United Hockey League!
The participating centres are: the Burlington
Eagles, Flamborough Sabres, Halton Hills Thunder, Milton Winterhawks, and the
Evaluations for these teams will
occur in the Fall; please contact your local organization for details. Once
teams are selected, there will be a development phase between the end of
evaluations and the beginning of the season.
Each team will play in 24 league
games and will participate in various tournaments and jamborees. These events will
also include teams not involved with the HUHL to encourage outside competition.
Each centre will also provide development and training in addition to the
league games offered.
During the season, we will also
encourage our teams to play in exhibition games against teams outside of the
HUHL with other OMHA teams, Alliance, and GTHL centres.
Once the season has completed,
each division will have a wrap-up weekend, hosted by HUHL associations.
The league will consist of Under
8 and Under 9 leagues, tiered to match like-skilled players against each other.
Under 8s will play half-ice all season, while the Under 9s will start at
half-ice and transition to full-ice games January 15th in accordance
with the Hockey Canada U9 Pathway.
We have listened to our
memberships, and we are delivering the best product! This league will provide
the best opportunity for our young athletes to develop and compete in Hockey
Canada sanctioned programming.
Registration for our Under 8 and
9 teams will be available May 15th.
Under 7 programming information
will be provided in the coming weeks.
