NEW TRI-COUNTY ADVANCED LEAGUE & U7 MINOR DEVELOPMENT
We are excited to announce a NEW Advanced League at the U10 – U18 age groups, that will compete in a formal, competitive league made up of associations within Tri-County, including: Brampton, Halton, Orangeville, Guelph, Oakville and more. In addition, these teams will have the opportunity to compete in three (3) tournaments throughout the season (additional permitted during seasonal breaks), as well as an end-of-season championship event.

Here are some of the highlights of this new program:

  • Tiered teams available as both Full-Time or Part-Time
  • Full-Time teams (U12 – U18) will participate exclusively in this Advanced League with 24 regular season games, additional exhibition games, and playoff games/championship
  • Part-Time teams (U10 – U18) will follow a traditional Select structure, playing both in their association’s House League, and an additional 2-3 games monthly in the Advanced League
  • Exhibition games permitted vs. OMHA, Alliance, MHL and GTHL teams
  • Multiple in-season tournaments (additional permitted during seasonal breaks)
  • Enhanced development opportunities with professional, experienced hockey instructors
  • Structured and balanced schedule set at the beginning of the season
  • Consistent levels of programming ensured among participating associations
  • OMHA, OHF and Hockey Canada certified league

 

 

Minor Development (MD)

In case you missed it - we are pleased to introduce the MD program to the U7 age group for the upcoming season. This program will now span across U7-U9 and provides a competitive opportunity for our young, budding athletes graduating from the timbits program.

 

 

With the introduction of these new programming options, Brampton Hockey now offers competitive travel hockey from Minor Development to Advanced League to Representative, ALL within Tri-County to ensure seamless stepping stones for our players as they progress and grow.

 

 

Spring Evaluations + Development Skates:

Evaluations (previously referred to as 'tryouts') for the U12-U18 Advanced League teams will begin following the May holiday long-weekend.

Development skates will be offered for the U10-11 teams; should we have sufficient interest and skill-level at the development skates, we will proceed with evaluations immediately following. If not, evaluations will take place in September alongside Minor Development.

Development skates will also be offered for U7-U9 Minor Development, in preparation for Fall Evaluations in September.

 

The Development Skates are a great way for players to: prepare for what to expect during Fall Evaluations, meet the coaches, and also an opportunity for parents who wish to learn more about the programs and ask questions.

 

Coaches for the Advanced League and Minor Development teams were recently announced, and posted online.

Please see the Website Calendar for ice times for development skates and evaluations; limited spots are available in some cases so we encourage you to sign-up early.

 

 

We look forward to our new programming structure for the 2024-2025 season supported by Tri-County, that ensures there is something for everyone looking for a more competitive opportunity at an appropriate skill-level to ensure a positive and rewarding experience.
