Senior House League
The Joan Padmore Memorial Senior Division of the Toronto Leaside Girls Hockey Association (TLGHA) is for adult players and participants who are 18 years and older. Two programs are offered in the Senior Division:
~ Our successful Senior Learn to Play Program
~ Our very popular Senior House League (see below)

All games played at the Bubble (behind Ted Reeve Arena) Main and Gerrard St E.
We offer two divisions of Senior House League: Slapshot and Non-Slapshot for ages 18 and up.
These players enjoy good, fast game. This division is geared towards players currently playing at the Senior Women’s C-AA levels, players who are fresh out of University/Varsity hockey, or players who want a faster game than the Non-Slapshot level offers. This is a more competitive level of play.
Slapshots are allowed in this division, and there is a higher tolerance for incidental (i.e. not deliberate) contact.
Players at this level are generally competent skaters who have either aged gracefully and lost some of their skills and speed, taken a hiatus from hockey, or may be previous ringette players or figure skaters. This player has a decent knowledge of the game, but needs to improve on skills such as puck handling, shooting, and positional hockey play. There is also room for new players who have taken enough skills training to be able to stop with confidence, and who are ready to play in a league.
There are no slapshots allowed in this division.
Other Senior House League Information
All players require full equipment. A list of equipment can be found here.
After all teams within a division have played each other once, the Convenors will work to accommodate the requests of players wishing to change divisions, and will check in with Managers to balance the teams. There will be no movement between divisions after the initial games and the league will do all it can to ensure that balancing is completed in one step. TLGHA reserves the right to assign players to teams and move players between teams or divisions, as needed to achieve reasonable competitive balance among teams in the division. To that end, TLGHA offers no guarantee that requests for a player to be placed on the same team as another will be accommodated. We register individuals, and not teams.
The league attracts and welcomes players with a wide range of skills. Although the league is open to all, beginners with limited skating experience are encouraged to attend the Learn to Play Program to improve their skating and hockey skills before joining the house league. Advanced players are most welcome but are expected to be considerate of players of lesser ability.
In the interest of fair and balanced competition, “Friend Requests” are limited to one friend only and must be reciprocal. i.e. Mary requests Jane to be on her team when she registers; Jane must also request Mary to be on her team when she registers. We cannot guarantee that friend requests will be accommodated, but best efforts will be made to do so.
Code of Conduct
We play according to the rules and codes of conduct of the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association and Hockey Canada. The codes of conduct identify the standard of behaviour expected of our players and volunteers. TLGHA is committed to providing a positive sport environment in which all individuals are treated with respect. Members of the TLGHA are expected to conduct themselves at all times in a fair, sportsmanlike and responsible manner (and overwhelmingly do so). Members shall refrain from comments or behaviours which are disrespectful, offensive, abusive, racist or sexist. In particular, behaviour which constitutes harassment, abuse or bullying will not be tolerated. Fortunately, such incidents have been exceedingly rare but TLGHA reserves the right to act on violations of the codes of conduct including suspension if deemed necessary.
In the interest of player safety and providing a positive, recreational sport environment, in addition to penalties that may be called by our on-ice officials in accordance with OWHA rules, TLGHA reserves the right to address dangerous and overly aggressive play. In extreme circumstances (which are very rare), if deemed necessary for the safety of all players, this may include suspension of a player and ultimately expulsion from the league.
