Lace Up Those Skates for the MGHL Return to Hockey Day!

Thank you to all those families that have registered so far for our upcoming 2023-24 House League season, and a big Welcome / Welcome Back to the MGHL!



The MGHL has been working hard to prepare for the upcoming season. We hope all our athletes have had a great summer break and are excited to get onto the ice this year. For those that have not yet registered, we still have some spaces available and encourage you to get signed up before registration closes on October 2, 2023 (note that our free U7 Program and U7 waitlist are currently full.) This season kicks off with our annual Evaluation / Return to Hockey Day on September 10, 2023. Please check out our MGHL House League Page if you would like to learn more about our program; or head on over to our Registration Page to read more about our current season fees and to register.

Please join us at Rink #2, Iceland Arena (705 Matheson Blvd E, Mississauga, ON L4Z 3X9) on Sunday, September 10, 2023 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM for our Return to Hockey Day. This year, we are excited to welcome dynamic and highly experienced development instructor Kelli Aquino as our on-ice Lead during our session evaluations. Kelli is a seasoned professional, MGHL alum and will be both convening and heading up our U7 Program for 2023-24.

Please see the schedule below and make note of when each division will be on the ice. Make sure to arrive approximately 30 to 40 minutes prior to each division’s start time so that athletes can check in and change into their full equipment.

TIE-TO REQUESTS


The MGHL Tie-To Request System is OPEN! The cost for the Tie-To Package is $40 per player. We kindly ask that only ONE family complete both steps for payment and form submissions. For those players that hope to stay together on a House League team this season, please follow these steps carefully:

  1. Single Payment of $80 on RAMP: ONE players’ family must add the full $80 Tie-To Package to their RAMP Account (families are asked to please coordinate splitting money for the Tie-To Package fees amongst each other.)
  2. Single Submission of Request Form: ONE players’ family must fill in and submit the Tie-To Request Form including both players’ details.

Both steps must be completed by October 2, 2023 at the latest.

We may not be able to consider late requests beyond this date. At the MGHL, we do our best to evaluate all player’s abilities prior to forming teams to try keeping them as balanced as we can; because of this, we cannot guarantee that all Tie-To requests can be accommodated. However, we will make every effort to keep all requested players together.


SEASON PREPARATION


Before the Return to Hockey Day, please remember the following:

  • Get your daughter’s skates sharpened.
  • Tape their stick.
  • Check your daughter’s hockey equipment and make sure it's in good playing condition (no expired or improperly fitted protective gear).
  • Make sure all of the gear is in their bag.  Due to safety we can't let your daughter on the ice if they are missing equipment.

New to hockey and not sure what equipment your daughter needs? Download our Equipment Checklist / Fit Sheet.


EQUIPMENT EXCHANGE


The MGHL will be hosting an Equipment Exchange during our Return to Hockey Day. This will be located at Iceland Arena on the second floor in the room next to the MGHL Clubhouse from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Gently used equipment will be available, for example: skates, gloves, protective gear, helmets, bags and more! For any questions about the exchange please contact our Equipment Director, Neil Coreschi, at: [email protected].


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED


As always, the MGHL is in need of Convenors, Coaches, Trainers and Volunteers at almost all divisional levels. To learn more about how you can volunteer, please see our Volunteers Page. If you are interested in volunteering your time at the rink this season to help out your daughter’s team, please fill in our House League Volunteer Form. If you would like more information about volunteering for House League, please contact our Director, Scott Forsyth, at [email protected] to get you started.
