The DS (Development Stream) Program is a team formed from House League players who are selected on a tryout basis. DS teams play games against other Associations across Ontario.
The DS Program
Who can play?
All players registered in House League are eligible to try out for the DS team in their age group. Players selected for the DS team must continue to attend House League games and practices regularly. This may result in DS players having two games or practices on the same day.
What is the time commitment?
DS teams play in approximately 8 games and 3 tournaments during the House League season. DS players will typically be on the ice once a week in addition to their regular House League games and practices.
Which tournaments will our DS teams be attending?
Tournaments will be announced after tryouts in November. In past years, DS teams have played in the Guelph, Leaside and Brampton tournaments. This is subject to change.
What is the cost in addition to House League fees?
The cost of playing on a DS team is in addition to House League registration fees. It is typically between $300 and $700. Players will also be required to purchase their own jerseys and socks.
When are DS tryouts?
Tryouts will be held in early November and will be open to all House League players.
Do I have to register for DS?
We will send information on the tryouts to all House League players in October.
