All games (except Novice) line changes are made “on the fly”;
In younger divisions, teams are expected to rotate players in goal (where applicable) so each player can experience playing the goalie position for at least one game. The coach and bench staff will assign a goalie schedule for every player to each week;
House League games are forty-eight minutes in length;
Games are played on Saturdays with the younger players on the ice first thing in the morning and progressing through the late afternoon for the older players; and

IMPORTTANT: The 2021/2022 hockey season requires dual registration. This means you must register your player with: (1) with the Parkwoods Hockey League directly; and
(2) on the Hockey Canada eHockey website.
Once you complete the Parkwoods registration, please visit https://register.hockeycanada.ca/home to complete the registration process with Hockey Canada.
Both registrations need to be complete before your player can participate in the 2021/2022 Hockey Season.
Instructions on how to create and complete the registration with Hockey Canada is attached below.

The FIRST SHIFT program is designed to ensure a positive experience for new-to-hockey families. We want families to experience the game at its best — to understand why so many Canadians feel an inherent love for the sport, and to stimulate a desire for continued participation. We want to take away any intimidation as it relates to equipment requirements, and/or rules of the game, remove potential safety concerns, and most importantly, provide an experience that is memorable and fun.
Details about the program will be posted shortly.
Parkwoods House League registration is now open!
Looking forward to seeing everyone when the 2021/2022 Season starts!
Hello Parkwoods families,
We hope that you are all remaining safe and enjoying the warmer weather.
The GTHL has released its plans for the return to hockey in 2021-22. Based on this, we expect to start our house league season just after Thanksgiving as usual. The restart will depend on public health guidance but we are hopeful that the trends will continue in the right direction. In advance, the GTHL will release its Game Plan 2.0 which will outline the health and safety protocols to protect all our participants. You can read the GTHL’s announcement at the following link below for the 2021-22 Return to Play – GTHL (gthlcanada.com).
Parkwoods’ registration for next season will open in mid-June. We will notify you when it opens.
It is a ways off, but we are looking forward to getting all our players back on the ice!
Yours in hockey,
PARKWOODS HOCKEY LEAGUE
