Recreational League

 

Brampton Hockey’s Recreational League has divisions from Minor Atom to Juvenile and the League provides the youth of Brampton an opportunity to play hockey at the recreational level. 

 

The Brampton Hockey Recreational League season runs from late September to mid March and consists of an exhibition schedule, a regular season schedule and a round robin playoff schedule.  At the conclusion of the playoff schedule the top two teams in each age division advance to the Brampton Hockey Weekend of Champions which is held at the end of March or in early April depending upon the calendar.  The entire season consists of approximately 24 weeks. 

 

All teams in Brampton Hockey’s Recreational League also participate in the Neville Woolridge Tournament that is held during the Christmas Holidays.  All teams play a minimum of 3 games over the course of the tournament and the fourth and final day features semi final and final action.  The tournament is one of the largest in house tournaments in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association.

 

Teams from Minor Atom to Minor Midget are also provided with practice ice each week.  Depending upon the division this could be a half sheet of ice every week or a full sheet of ice every second week.

 

Players do not tryout for the Recreational League.  Teams are formed at the start of the season for a 3 game exhibition schedule.  Following the exhibition games “draft nights” are held where the coaches select their teams.  All players will be selected to a team.

 

During all games the policy of fair ice time is followed by the coaches.  What this means is that all players will receive a fair amount of ice time during the game.  This policy allows all players, regardless of skill level, to be able to enjoy the opportunity to play the game.

 

The success of the Recreational League, as it is with all of Brampton Hockey’s programs, is based on the participation of volunteers.  At the Representative, Select and Intra City levels coaches apply for a coaching position and go through a coach selection process.  At the Recreational League level a similar process is followed but it the Recreational League Committee is always faced with the task of finding coaches late in the summer to ensure that all teams have a coach.  If your child will be playing in the Recreational League, please keep this in mind so that the opportunity for the youth of Brampton to play hockey can be continued by Brampton Hockey Inc.
