League Update

Latest Update

December 4, 2020
Hello Parents / Guardians,

Please find the latest information from the GTHL regarding the 2020-2021 season below.

The GTHL Board of Directors announced today that it will permit teams and organizations to return to on and off ice activities once the region in which each team/organization operates (i.e. Peel, Toronto or York) enters the Ontario Government’s Orange “Restrict” level in its COVID-19 response framework. No organization will be required to begin activity at any time.

On October 4, 2020, the GTHL announced the postponement of the 2020-21 season until at least January 1, 2021 in response to the rapid rise in COVID cases in the GTA. Today’s decision comes as the cases of the virus in the GTA remain high. Currently Mississauga and Toronto are in the Grey “Lockdown” level and York Region is in the Red “Control” level as outlined by the Province’s public health measures.

In reaching this decision, the GTHL Board had four objectives in mind:
- providing certainty for Members where possible;
- mitigating COVID-19 risk for families and the community;
- supporting the physical and mental well-being of players; and
- acting in the best interests of the GTHL and hockey in the GTA.

When permitted, resuming operations under the Orange “Restrict” level will permit GTHL teams and organizations to open in Period 2 of the GTHL Game Plan document.

The GTHL is mindful that the window to operate meaningful programs is closing and will be revisiting the current circumstances on January 4, 2021 to determine if a final date should be established as to when programming must commence before the balance of the 2020-21 season would regrettably have to be cancelled. That date may be impacted by dates established by the Ontario Hockey Federation for tryouts for the 2021-22 season.

In coming to this decision, the Board weighed many considerations, including the desire of some GTHL organizations to open programming as soon as possible while others are considering not operating this season; the desire and need for players to resume physical activity, especially hockey; the fact that facilities and resources operated by municipalities are finite and may be required to support other initiatives during the final stages of the pandemic; and the financial challenges GTHL organizations face in operating hockey programs with a limited number of participants.

The GTHL Board will continue to regularly consult with health experts from Toronto Public Health and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto as the situation develops.

The GTHL encourages players, families, teams and organizations to find ways to stay active and support the community. Regular exercise, volunteering and acts of kindness are proven to assist in improving mental health in people of all ages.

The GTHL Board is optimistic about recent news on vaccines and the Prime Minister’s comments that vaccines will be available to most Canadians by September of 2021. This provides hope for the full resumption of activities by the GTHL and its Member organizations for the 2021-22 season.

Ontario Hockey Federation Statement

June 4, 2020

Today, Hockey Canada has released its Return to Hockey Safety Guidelines. In addition, the Hockey Canada Board of Directors have announced that Members may resume sanctioned activities where appropriate, in accordance with government and health authority directives, and Hockey Canada’s Return to Hockey safety protocol.

Within the Return to Hockey Safety Guidelines, Hockey Canada has provided information on how to prepare your league/association for a return to hockey, hygiene, return-to-play protocols and the use of facilities. Hockey Canada’s Return to Hockey Safety Guidelines can be found here: Safety and Protocols

The Ontario Hockey Federation is encouraged by this announcement and will be releasing its Return to Hockey Plan on Monday, June 8. This Return to Hockey Plan will be shared through e-mail communication from OHF associated organizations and will live here: Return to Hockey – COVID-19 Response

Hockey Canada Statement on Return to Hockey in Canada

June 4, 2020

CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement on behalf of Hockey Canada from Tom Renney, chief executive officer, and Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer, on the return-to-hockey process in Canada.

On March 12, the decision was made to cancel all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities across the country. This was a difficult decision, but one made to maintain the health and safety of all participants and the general public amid growing concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Currently there are no Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities being conducted, and we are working with our Members on their return-to-hockey plans. After ongoing discussions with the board of directors, our chief medical officer, the 13 Members and public health authorities across the country, it has been determined that the best approach for a return to hockey in Canada is to allow each Member the opportunity to work with authorities in their respective regions to determine when it is safe to return to the ice in areas that fall under their jurisdiction. We expect the timing of each Member’s return to hockey will be different, but will be based on the advice of their government and public health authority.

It is imperative to note that we are not ready to return to the game across the country. As we have seen in respect to flattening the curve, the impact of the pandemic varies from region to region. Permitting our Members the opportunity to decide on an appropriate return-to-hockey timeline will allow them to work directly with public health authorities to determine when it is safe to return while also implementing specific safety measures and rules within their associations and leagues.

Hockey Canada knows the game will look quite different, and the return will happen at different speeds and at different times across the country. Be assured, we continue to work on our multi-faceted return-to-hockey plan that includes health and safety regulations, communications and seasonal structure. As with so many people across the country, we look forward to returning to the game when it is safe to do so, and we will support our 13 Members as we continue to work towards getting back on the ice.”

League Update - May 27th

Hello Parents / Guardians,

We hope everyone is doing well and keeping safe during this very trying and confusing time.

As of June 1, 2020, our Online Registration link will be open at:

Below are some important notes you should read prior to registering in the S.H.A. Hockey Club (Scarborough Ice Raiders) Program. It is the sole purpose of this organization to provide a not for profit community-based program that works on a cost recovery bases that provides an equal opportunity for the entire community.

At this time our Governing Bodies including (Greater Toronto Hockey League, Ontario Hockey Federation and of Hockey Canada) have not yet confirmed when the S.H.A. Hockey Club and other Programs will begin. As you are all aware our Provincial and Federal Governments will determine that as soon as it become safe for our children.

Registration: To prepare for the return, and because it will be a short turnaround time from approval to play, it is important that we have everyone registered prior to that date. Once a start date is determined, we will have approximately 4 weeks instead of the summer to order and provide all the necessities to start the season.  To alleviate as much financial burden as possible to our families at this time, when registering you will not pay a deposit until the program is determined. 

Once the length and detail of the program is determined, the final price will be set, including compensation for the early finish last season.  Parents will need to complete registration electronically with the payment being split into 2 equal payments over a 60 day period.

New Registrations: For our new families the same process will be followed as above with Program Information details found at www.syhl.ca .

Goaltenders: Goaltenders registration will be available online.  If you are registering a goaltender and the goaltender option is not displayed for the age group in question, email [email protected] with the full name and date of birth of your child.  The registrar will confirm if there are still goaltender spots available.

Little Raiders (Hockey School): All players born in 2016, 2017 will be placed in the Little Raider Program. Players born in 2014, 2015 will not have an option for this program as the H.C.R. (Hockey Canada Registry) does not allow multiply options for the same age group. If you wish to have your child in this program, please register them in the option available in the system then email [email protected] and our registrar will change the registration of your child to Little Raider in the system.

Coaches: As always we are also looking to confirm Coaches for the upcoming season, if interested please email [email protected] and I will contact you directly to place in the Division you are interested in coaching.

Seasonal Awards: As stated previously, when we are available to meet, the awards from the 2019 / 2020 season will be made available.  A separate email will be sent out when this is available.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] and I will attempt to answer them in a timely fashion with the information that we have been provided with to date.

Hockey Canada - An Open Letter to Canadians

May 14, 2020

First, and most importantly, to the front-line and essential workers who have gone above and beyond around the clock to keep Canadians safe – a simple thank you is not nearly enough for what you have done over the last three months.

Second, to our Members, partners, local hockey associations, volunteers and fans across Canada, thank you for keeping the spirit of hockey alive. Unprecedented times have called for unprecedented efforts at every level of the game.

As provinces and territories phase in a plan to reopen in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are questions about when hockey will return, and how it will look when it does.

Hockey Canada and its Members are diligently working on a multifaceted return-to-hockey plan that will happen when, and only when, provincial and territorial governments and health authorities deem it safe to do so.

This plan includes everything from health and safety regulations to communications, seasonal structure, customer engagement and national teams. 

Annual General Meeting

The S.H.A. Hockey Club's annual general meeting will be held on:

Monday June 22, 2020


The Meeting will be held via "Zoom" or another remote mode

Information will follow

League Update - April 27th

April 27, 2020
Hello Parents / Guardians,

Hopefully this note finds you and your families healthy and safe during this very unique situation. As you are all aware, we have absolutely no idea when our program will return for the enjoyment of all our playing members.

I am working during these times with our Governing Bodies (Greater Toronto Hockey League, Ontario Hockey Federation and of course Hockey Canada) on different scenarios that may occur. All of these scenarios will not come into play until the Government of Ontario and Canada itself deems it safe enough to return to play.

As we mentioned, prior to this note, by June 1, 2020 we will hopefully open up online registration. The idea of registering for a program that you are not sure when it starts and how involved it will be upon the return is very confusing. We are registering players for a total deposit of $25.00 that will be refundable at anytime. We are doing this to help give us an idea of numbers of players in divisions as it will be a quick turnaround once we are given permission to start. Once start-up is determined we will let everyone know the total cost and then proceed to charge the remaining amount over 2 payments to help ease the financial burden to parents and guardians.  

Below are some links to some fun exercises that our young playing members and their siblings may be interested in doing during their time inside. Our friend Greg Schell form Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment has designed these to help keep our players active during this time.
