House League Friend Requests

Friend requests will be considered but cannot be guaranteed. We will only consider 1 reciprocal friend request for a player in the same division/age group. This means that if you enter the name of a friend on our Friend Request Form, they must also submit the name of your player on their form. Please complete a friend request form for siblings.

  1. Submit Friend Request Form by the first evaluation skate with the name of the 'friend.' Friend requests are accepted until September 24, 2023.
  2. Your friend must submit a 'Friend Request Form' with your name.

Volunteer to coach, assist or act as a trainer

Without coaches and trainers who volunteer their time and step behind the bench every season, there would be no minor hockey in Markham/Stouffville.

Please view our House League Team Staff page for information on how to register to volunteer as a member of a team staff.

Developing our House League players

Our intention is to host a separate series of skills sessions during the season for house league players interested in developing their hockey skills. These sessions will have an additional cost and we will share more information as we get closer to the season.

DS/Select Teams

A DS/Select Team provides an opportunity for house league players to compete at a higher level. A DS team is comprised of players from house league who try out for this competitive team. Currently, we anticipate that we'll have DS teams in our U11, U13, U15 and U18 divisions. The OWHA does not allow for DS teams in U7 and U9.

DS seasons are governed by the OWHA. A typical season includes up to 8 exhibition games, up to 3 tournaments, and approximately 1 practice per week.

DS tryouts are usually held in November. There is an additional cost for playing on a DS team (coaches set their budgets once the house league season starts).
