Program Overview (EGMHA)

PrintProgram Overview

East Gwillimbury Minor Hockey Association offers two different programs depending on the age of the player.

The houseleague program runs from the third week of September until the end of March.  Practices and games are Saturday and Sunday mornings (exact times are determined in late summer and will be set for the full year at that time).


Houseleague (ages 10 and below as of Dec 31st)

  • Focus is considered recreational, providing equal ice time to all players regardless of skill level.
  • All Games/Practices at Sharon Arena generally in the same timeslots
  • All teams are “EG Eagles”; you only play teams from East Gwillimbury
  • You do not have to live in East Gwillimbury to play hockey in EGMHA Houseleague

We are excited to announce changes to our Novice and Atom divisions.  

Starting in 2017-2018, the Atom Houseleague program will be fully integrated with Bradford.   All practices will be in East Gwillimbury, but games will be against other EG teams or Bradford Teams.  Some games will therefore be in Bradford.  The schedule will be established at beginning of the season.

Novice will have a partially integrated division, where one out of every four games will be against a Bradford team.

We feel that this will provide a bit more excitement and variety for our young players.



Local Loop (ages 11 and older)

  • Focus is considered recreational, providing equal ice time to all players regardless of skill level.
  • All practices at Sharon Arena are generally in the same timeslots
  • Games, however, are played at Sharon and other centres participating in local league (“away” centres may include Bradford, TNT, Schomberg, Lefroy, Beeton, Richmond Hill, Innisfil and Nobleking)
  • You do not have to live in East Gwillimbury to play hockey in EGMHA Local League
  • Regular season runs from October to February.  Playoffs determine how far you go (typically into mid-March)
  • All teams are guaranteed 2 rounds of playoffs
  • Costs are higher than Houseleague due to:
    • Full ice practices (Houseleague shares practice ice with another team)
    • Home and away Jerseys – higher quality than Houseleague
    • 70 min icetime vs 60 mins (Games are typically 10-10-15)
    • Peewee, Bantam and Midget are 3-man official system
