ONLINE REGISTRATION OPENS ON WEDNESDAY APRIL 18, AT 5:00PM.
Please review the following instructions in order to successfully complete your child’s online registration.
Please do NOT use your child’s email address for registration purposes. If you have used your child’s email address within the registration system, you do have the option to edit the information.
Note that all communication from the league will be forwarded to the email address that you have provided during registration.
PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YOUR CHILD IN A DIVISION FOR WHICH THEY ARE INELIGIBLE. For instance, do not try to place your child born in 2000 with those born in 2001.
The paid invoice is also your tax receipt. Please print a copy for your records.
Duplicate copies will only be available through the website at the end of the 2018-2019 season.
Refunds, less a $50 administrative fee, will be made for Learn to Play registrants only if requested before October 31, 2018. No refunds for Learn to Play will be issued in respect of any requests received on or after November 1, 2018.
Regardless of when the refund request is submitted, a full refund will not occur as an administrative fee will be charged to cover the cost of your child’s registration and release. Refunds will only be processed after the deadline date for refunds for both House League and Learn to Play (i.e. October 31, 2018) regardless of when the request for the refund is made. If a player is released after the relevant deadline at the discretion of the Knights, no refund will be made.
LTP programs at York Mills, St Mike’s and Pleasantview will begin on October 13, 2018.
NOTE: The 9:30am session for St Mike’s LTP is generally for BEGINNER skaters (standing and walking on skates or basic stride and glide). The 10:30am session for St Mike’s LTP is for STRONGER skaters and returning LTP players (good stride and glide, turns and stops). Please register your child accordingly. Please note that if a player is registered for the 10:30 LTP session and the child is not at the eligible “skill level” (good stride and glide) at the time of assessments, the Knights reserve their right to cancel this player’s registration.
Extended Learn to Play will begin on October 13, 2018 at 10:00am at Pleasantview arena (subject to change). The minimum number of players required for the Knights to offer this program is 20. If a player is registered for Extended Learn to Play but the sessions need to be cancelled due to low enrolment, the Knights will notify parents of the cancellation.

House League games are held on Sunday evenings. Practices are held throughout the day on Saturdays with the exception of the Midget category. The drafting of House League teams occurs in September. By the first week of October, parents will receive an email/phone call from the player’s House League coach to communicate information on practice times, arena location and the regular season schedule. The Knights cannot provide information on practice times and game schedules for any team in any of the divisions before the team draft in September.
House League practices and games are scheduled in several locations in North York, including the York Mills, Bayview, Mitchell Field and Pleasantview arenas. Arenas and playing times will be assigned to teams/divisions once the teams are drafted in September. Parents/players cannot choose in which arenas they will be practicing or playing.
Parents/Players will receive notice of their team assignment from their coach by October 7, 2018. There may be pre-season exhibition games for the Tyke - Minor Novice divisions before the Thanksgiving weekend. Coaches will contact players in these divisions should exhibition games be scheduled. All other divisions will begin the season the weekend of October 13/14, 2018.
The Tyke and Minor Novice age group will follow the Hockey Canada mandated Initiation Program (IP) moving forward which recommends training and playing in a cross-ice or half-ice format. This Canada-wide initiative applies to all hockey associations and is intended to improve the development and progression of basic hockey skills and concepts.
It is the intention of the North York Knights to have practices for this age group on Saturday mornings and to schedule games on Sunday in the late-afternoon/early evening for the entire season. Games will have players as fully equipped goaltenders with a weekly rotation expected amongst the players; and there will be bumpers to divide the ice according to the modified ice guidelines.
Novice aged players will play using the full ice surface during the 2018-2019 season.
A more detailed explanation of what is recommended in the Initiation Program for the various ages can be found at the following Hockey Canada address: http://www.gthlcanada.com/initiation-program-resources/.
