House League

The Toronto Leaside Wildcats offer outstanding Initiation and House League programs for girls of all skill levels from ages 3 to 17 years old.

House League Programs

Learning Programs

It all begins with our House League Learning programs. FUNdamentals is for girls aged 3–5 who have never played hockey before. Learn To Play, is for girls aged 5 and 6 who have some skating and hockey experience and who are capable of staying out on the ice for 60 minutes.

Girls aged 8–14 who have never played organized hockey may be interested in our 8-week Introduction To Youth Hockey program, with sessions in the fall and winter. Intro Fall players can then choose to take Intro to Hockey Winter or join a House League team starting in January.

House League Program

The House League Program is for girls with some hockey experience aged 7 to 17. Teams are coached by volunteer parents, and the weekly schedule consists of a practice on Saturday and a game on Sunday. Midget games are played on Sunday, Monday night or Tuesday night. Every House League team will also participate in one or more tournaments.

DS Program

House league players looking to take part in additional games and tournaments played at a more competitive level can try out in November for our DS Program, an extra-fee program offered in most divisions.

Skills Programs

Toronto Leaside Wildcats offers additional Skills Programs for skaters and goalies. Players in Minor Novice to Bantam can register for our biweekly Power Skating and High-Performance Skills programs, extra-fee weekday programs led by professional instructors.

More experienced players who intend to try out for the DS Program can register for our five-week Boot Camp, an extra-fee program.

Goaltenders, whether experienced or strapping on the pads for the very first time, can attend our weekly Goalie Clinic, available at no extra cost to all players in house league.

Volunteer with Leaside

Our association could not operate without the hard work of dedicated parent volunteers!

As we continue to grow, we need more volunteers to fill a range of roles, from House League division convenor, tournament planners and banquet committee.

If you think you have some time to volunteer please email Eric Sinkins, EVP House League, and we will find a spot for you!
