Our Leaside Wildcat’s goalies scored big this week with the launch of the “Holy Moley, Who’s That Goalie?”, the goalie development program sponsored by Sportacular Events.
Sportacular Events will contributed $20,000 over the next eight years towards Toronto Leaside Wildcat goalie development programs. The funding will allow Leaside to empower more female athletes to put on those pads and step between the posts.
Sportacular Events has been part of the Leaside family for over 10 years supporting our March Madness Tournament.

We’d like to announce a great development opportunity for your players coming soon on Sunday September 11th at Leaside Arena.
Our Toronto Leaside Junior Team, the highest level team in our organization who competes in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League, is running 1 hour on-ice skill clinics for our youngest players to help them learn what it takes to get to the next level. The coaches and players from the Junior team will be the on-ice skill instructors for the sessions and will work with players on all individual skills, from skating, stick-handling, shooting and passing. The Junior players will also be available for autographs and pictures with our younger players after each ice session!
This is a very important day for our Junior team as they continue their fundraising efforts for the 2016-2017 season. All funds received will go directly towards helping the team cover their costs for the upcoming year. The cost for each young player to attend is $25. We can accommodate 30 players on the ice at each session and encourage all players to attend as there will be at least a 5:1 student-to-staff ratio on the ice to help work with the players at various skill levels.

Toronto Leaside Girls Hockey Association
May 11, 2016, Toronto – In an effort to help good parents and guardians become better hockey role models, the Toronto Leaside Girls Hockey Association (TLGHA) is introducing Respect in Sport Parent Program, a one-hour online course that teaches participants about the prevention of bullying, abuse, harassment, and discrimination (BAHD) in sport.
The program will be phased-in as an optional certification in 2016-17 and will be mandatory for the 2017-18 season. The cost is $12 + HST for unlimited members of the same family. To introduce the course, TLGHA will reimburse the first 100 families who complete the certification. Families who have already taken it through Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) or the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) are not required to recertify and simply need to import their certification into the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA) parent program database.
“Hockey families spend hundreds of hours supporting their young athletes and we believe the Respect in Sport Parent Program is hands-down, one of the most important hours a parent will invest in the game,” said Jennifer Smith, President of the TLGHA. “Too many kids drop out of hockey in their pre-teen and early teen years because it’s no longer fun. Creating a more respectful culture around sport will keep the experience safe fun and for kids, and help keep them active longer.”
The Respect Group was co-founded by former NHLer Sheldon Kennedy in 2004. Respect in Sport Parent Program aims to empower participants to recognize signs of BAHD and eliminate it from the game, through a global culture of respect. The program helps parents evaluate and understand:
- Parental influence over a child
- Coach and leader roles in sport
- Role of the parent and coach in ensuring a child’s enjoyment of a sport
- Protecting your child when outside of your immediate control
- Concussion awareness and return to play guidelines
- Long-term player development
“We are pleased to partner with the Toronto Leaside Girls Hockey Association – one of Canada’s largest female hockey associations – and bring the Respect in Sport Parent Program to even more hockey households in Toronto. Together, we will help keep the game fun and safe for kids, and in doing so, support the many coaches, referees and other volunteers who make youth hockey possible,” said Mark Allen, Respect Group’s Ontario Director.

To-date, Respect Group has certified over 600,000 Canadians on the prevention of abuse, bullying and harassment.
