Intra-City League

Brampton Hockey Inc’s Intra-City League is listed with the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) as "Minor Development" (MD),a level of play between the Representative Teams and the Recreational League.The Intra-City League provides players with an opportunity to play at a higher level of play than the Recreational League as well as providing a stepping stone, for those players who have an interest to do so, to advance on to the Representative Level.

Brampton Hockey’s Intra-City League consists of divisions from Minor Atom to Midget. In February 2015 the OMHA removed body contact at all levels of the Intra-City League.

The Intra-City teams are “rostered” with the Ontario Minor Hockey Association which allows them to participate inTournaments that are hosted by centres in the OMHA, Alliance Hockey,the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) and elsewhere. Intra-City teams are permitted to attend 3 tournaments over the course of their season.

The Intra-City League has a 25 week long schedule that includes both regular season play and a round robin playoff schedule. At the end of the playoffsthe top twoteamsqualify to play in the Brampton Hockey Weekend of Champions. The season begins in mid September and ends at the end of March.

In addition to a game a week, all teams receive one hour of practice time on a full sheet of ice. Teams may also rent additional ice time to conduct practices or hold exhibition games.

Players tryout for Intra-City with the tryouts beginning in late April after the Rep tryouts are completed. Tryouts for the Midget age division are held following the Labour Day weekend. There is a nominal fee to cover the ice cost for each tryout session. At the conclusion of the tryouts a “draft night” is held where the coaches of Brampton Hockey’s Intra-City teams will select players for their team. Each team selects 15 skaters and two goaltenders. Please note that not all players who tryout for Intra-City will be selected in the draft.

Parents should be aware that Brampton Hockey does assess each Intra-City team with a surcharge to cover the additional cost of playing at this level. The surcharge is a team cost to which all players are required to contribute their appropriate share. In addition to the surcharge teams will do fund raising to cover other costs related to the operation of the team such as tournament fees, extra practice ice, sweaters and team apparel. Brampton Hockey does have within its Resolutions a maximum dollar amount that teams are permitted to charge each player to cover these additional costs.
