THE SELECT PROGRAM: U10-U18
Season 2022/23: for players born 2005-2013
Note: For information on the LHA's competitive program for children 6-8 years old (2014-2016), please see Competitive Development Stream.
The Select Division of the LHA provides an opportunity for House League players to participate in competitive hockey. Our goal is to provide a safe, fun, fair, and inclusive team experience in a community environment. Our programs are delivered exclusively by our committed volunteers who put in many hours to coach and manage our teams.
A player must be registered for House League for the 2022/23 season to be eligible to attend tryouts. Our tryouts are run by a third-party invigilator. No teams are selected or spots offered prior to tryouts, with the exception of (1) the player of the Head Coach, and (2) the player of one other team staff member as designated by the Head Coach. For further clarity, Head Coaches are prohibited from recruiting or offering spots to players prior to the tryout evaluation.
The goalie tryouts on Monday, May 16th provide time for the invigilator and head coaches to focus on observing them. Goalies must also attend the regular team tryouts, according to their age group, and the tryout finals, depending on the invite.
Players who make a Select team must also play in our House League at the same time. As Select team members, players have the benefit of additional practice time and participation in games within the North York Hockey League (NYHL). Additionally, teams may enter local or away tournaments each season.
The operation of our Select Division is overseen by the VP and GM of Select Hockey. For more information on our Select program, please see the Select FAQs or contact our Select Coordinator, Catherine: email@example.com.
