EGMHA Opening Weekends
We are excited to welcome back to the ice our returning and new players in our House League and Local League programs. We have been working hard over the summer planning and preparing for another exciting year of Eagles Hockey.  

Our season will begin for U11 to U16 Local League with Evaluations on September 16th and 17th, and on September 30th and October 1st for all House League and U18 Local League Divisions.


We are currently running prep skates for players wishing to try out for the U8 or U9 MD teams, once those are complete, Evaluations for the teams will take place. Players that are not offered a spot on those teams will return to the ice for our U9 House League Evaluations.

Times for each age group are on the EGMHA Calendar, you will receive an email prior to your first ice time with details.

The general times for each division are posted on the EGMHA Calendar, for divisions with more than one ice time each day, you should have received an email with the time that your player is assigned to.

Reminders:

  • ·      Parents are not allowed to be on the player benches during House or Local League hockey programming, only volunteers appointed as bench staff are allowed in the player areas. Parent are welcome to watch from the stands or lobby.
  • ·      Jerseys and socks will be handed out once the teams are formed, so you will need our own jerseys and socks for Evaluations. For players in Local League, you will receive an email directing you to wear either a light or dark coloured jersey to the Evaluation skate. If you don’t have access to jerseys and socks please let us know
  • ·       Full equipment is required to go on the ice, including mouthguard and neck guard
  • ·       Bring a water bottle labelled with your player’s name
  • ·      Once the teams are formed, the schedules for the remainder of the season will be on the association website calendar (please note Local League game schedules will not be available until after the LL Scheduling meeting)

Any questions pertaining to House or Local League can be directed to Sherri Annis, Director of Local League at [email protected].

Please note that the overall objective of the Evaluations is to ensure competitive balance across all House and Local League teams. 

We are looking forward to seeing our Eagles on the ice this September!!!!
