House League

Since 1935, over 25,000 hockey players have passed through Faustina Minor Hockey in Toronto. For over 75 years, our organization has had the pleasure of providing families with an affordable hockey experience in an environment that fosters sportsmanship and skill development.

Our Atom division (2009/2010) is SOLD OUT.  We will add 2 more Atom teams if there is enough interest in the waiting list.
Tyke division (2013-2015) is SOLD OUT.

  • No games on October 19th (Dolphins Tournament) and Dec 28th (Faustina Select Tournament)
  • Game Days & Times

Saturday is game day for all divisions.
The first game of the day is 7 AM and the last game 5:40 PM

  • With the exception of the Tyke division the different age based divisions move thru the game day schedule on a rotational basis.
  • Everybody takes their turn at those early and late start times.
  • The Tyke division (4 – 6 yrs old) will play all games earlier in the day

The season long schedule for all the teams is ready on the first day of the season, so parents can know weeks ahead when their player has a game.

Modified Ice – I.P. Program (U8)

Faustina is at the forefront of implementing Hockey Canada’s mandated Initiation Programs which include all 4 to 8 year old players – we think you’ll find one of the best Hockey Canada based Initiation Programs (I.P.) around @ Faustina.   Last season we had 38 volunteers running our Tyke Timbits I.P. Hockey program alone.

Visit our Tyke Timbits I.P. page (4-6 years old) or our Novice I.P. page (7-8 years old) to learn more about our development program that is based on on small ice game time while prioritizing skills development and love of the game.

Teams & Divisions

Players are organized into teams and divisions by age.  Some movement is made to other divisions based on ability if needed.

Last year we had 36 teams in 7 divisions for over 500 players.

  • Tyke, Novice and Atom divisions are 3-minute buzzer line changes and no body checking.
  • Peewee, Bantam and Midget divisions are change on the fly and no body checking.
  • For Tyke & Novice, the players take turns playing goal.
  • Atom to Midget, one full time goalie on each team is the normal policy.

Same team / coach requests

We cannot guarantee same team or specific coach requests but we do our best to accommodate these where possible.  Complete this form if you would like to submit a request for next season.

Practices

The house league teams do not practice as teams during the season.

For Tyke to Bantam aged players we have weekly skating and skills improvement practice sessions, all indoors at the MasterCard Centre or nearby Long Branch Arena.

The 19/20 season schedule for practices is still to be determined, but last season we had sessions on Tuesdays 5pm, Thursdays 5pm  and Sundays 7 , 8, 9 am and do not expect this to change for the this season.

Here is a link to the practice schedule from last season for reference.

Since we do not practice as teams, we can be flexible for players attending other age group sessions if they cannot make their groups practice, a player can practice once or sometimes twice a week if desired.

We do have a pre-season Hockey School that offers 10 hours of practice time for interested house league players to improve their skills. Space is limited and the cost is $ 275.00, click here for more information.
