Altered Flood Schedule
Please note, an Altered Flood Schedule will be used in SOME arenas to ensure our game program can be completed within our allotted times. This takes place when two games from Bantam to Midget are scheduled.
The first game will follow the regular flood schedule with floods before the start of the game and another in-between the second and third period. As soon as that game ends, the second game in the back to back will begin without a flood and play the first period. In-between the first and second period, the only flood of this game will take place and those teams will play the second and third period on the fresh ice.
If the first game did not have a flood due to a five goal spread then we revert to a regular flood schedule in Game #2.
Below is an outline of what was described above:
Game 1 (bantam to midget)
1st period, 2nd period
Game 2 (bantam to midget) – 1st period
2nd period, 3rd period
On some occasions other rinks will use this on an as needed basis.
Club Home Days 2017-2018 Season
Home Days for clubs for the 2017-20178 season are available on June 19th Home Days. This chart will be updated periodically as home dates are submitted and approved. (UPDATED: TBD )
Looking For Ice?
Check out Canlan Ice Sports-York for practice ice throughout the season.
Check out Chesswood Arenas or Westwood Arenas for ice time throughout the season.
The City of Toronto now offers GTHL teams the chance to permit extra ice using an automated system. To grab some extra ice for your team, please click here.
All season long . . . Any time you play an exhibition game you must have your club GM or President submit your game particulars. Your GM needs to know the date, location, time and opponent. The GTHL’s Central Registry can then be contacted to arrange officials at email@example.com or 905-951-7946.
MasterCard Centre Policy on Warming up Off-Ice
Please be aware that playing with pucks, balls, golf balls, balls of tape etc. is not allowed in the dressing rooms or anywhere around the perimeter of our rinks or lobby of the MasterCard Centre. Failure to comply will result in ejection from the facility. Your co-operation and help with this would be appreciated and would assist in keeping our facility safe and clean.
City of Toronto Policy on Warming Up in the Arena
We would like to ask your help during the 2009/2010 hockey season. Could you please speak to your coaches, parents, officials etc. and let them know that hockey playing with pucks, balls, balls of tape etc. is not allowed in the dressing rooms or any where around the perimeter of our arenas. Any cooperation and help you can give us with this would be appreciated and would assist in keeping our arenas clean.
When parking at Lambton Arena, please be advised that parking in the grassy area at the arena is not permitted. Please only park in the designated parking spot area. There are a number of games being run on Sundays at Lambton, but please only park in designated parking spots.
Players are asked to exit the ice surface from the end-zone doors and not use the centre ice exit door when entering or exiting the ice surface.
White Hockey Pucks
Coaches using White Hockey Pucks must collect all of them at the end of their practice. Pucks left on the ice after a practice are difficult for rink staff to see and can (have) cause damage to a Zamboni. Coaches should do a white puck count at the beginning and end of practices.
From time to time a score will be reported incorrectly on the GTHL website. This may be due to an error on the game sheet or perhaps the score being recorded incorrectly. When this occurs simply fax or scan the game sheet – to the attention of Anthony Munro – to 416-636-2035 and list the cover page as Score Correction. Once we receive this information we can make the appropriate correction. This fax should be sent by the Head Coach or Manager of the team to ensure the office doesn’t receive numerous inquiries about the same incorrect score.
