The Twisters organization has long been committed to providing a well rounded hockey program with an excellent ratio of games to practices in house league. With the opening of two additional pads of ice at Mold-Masters SportsPlex we were able to increase practices, offer some exhibition games and offer a house league goalie clinic last season. We anticipate being able to offer a similar house league program for the upcoming season
All new players to any Twister Program must provide a copy of their birth certificate as proof of age. Please upload the player's birth certificate in the Ramp Registration System during the registration process. You can also send a copy of your child's birth certificate via email to [email protected] or mail to:
260 Guelph Street
In the interest of creating fair and balanced teams, a friend request will only be accepted where a returning Twisters player has a friend register who is new to the Twisters. For the friend request to be honoured, both the returning player and the new player must request to be on a team together; both players must submit the request by email. A player may only make one request.
Since coaches are not confirmed until the fall and teams are balanced for fairness, we cannot accept specific coaching requests.
HOW CAN I PAY?
Please complete all aspects of the registration online and either pay by credit card (Visa, Visa Debit or Mastercard). If you cannot pay by credit card, please contact our treasurer, Lorraine Perreira at [email protected] to make payment arrangements.
All players must be properly registered, including fees paid, before being allowed to play or practice with our association.
WHEN CAN I GET A RECEIPT FOR REGISTRATION FEES?
For online registrations, a receipt will be issued by at the time of registration. Receipts may also be obtained by logging into our registration system and selecting your historical information.
CAN I APPLY FOR A FULL OR PARTIAL FINANCIAL SUBSIDY?
Full subsidy is only available for the house league program. Our costs are fixed, so there is no discount available for multiple registrations from the same family. If you require financial assistance please contact our treasurer, Lorraine Perreira at [email protected] for assistance with registration. She will assist you in determining what financial aid may be available, including applying to the local Jump Start Program for which the application form, information, and contacts can be found at:
Or visit your local Canadian Tire Store or Links2Care in Acton.
HOW ARE THE YOUTH HOUSE LEAGUE TEAMS FORMED?
Our divisions for the 2023/2024 season are expected to be the following:
Fundamentals (born 2015 to 2019)
U7 - Tyke (born 2017 to 2019)
U9 - Novice (born 2015 to 2016)
U11 - Atom (born 2013 and 2014)
U13 - Peewee (born 2011 and 2012)
U15 - Bantam (born 2009 and 2010)
U18 - Midget (born 2006 to 2008)
We expect to have U9 (Novice), U11 (Atom), U13 (Peewee), U15 (Bantam) and U18 (Midget) divisions.
Tyke and U9 (Novice) will not have dedicated goalies. All players will rotate playing as a goalie.
Atom will aim to have 2 goalies per team. Any child who wants to try playing as a goalie will have a chance in net. Atoms will participate as a player when it is not their turn as a goalie.
Peewee and older aim to have one dedicated goalie per team. If additional goalies register, some goalies may have to share the position.
Every effort is made to balance the teams, and players may be asked to change teams after the season starts in order to achieve fair and equitable team balance. Each division has a Convenor assigned to set the teams, balance the teams and keep the standings. Director of House League manages and oversees the Convenors and league.
SENIOR WOMEN’S RECREATIONAL DIVISION
A Senior Women’s Recreational division is available for players 18 years of age and older.
From the inexperienced to the experienced is what makes up the North Halton Women's Recreational Hockey Division. Each team is balanced to offer equal opportunity for each team and player whether you are a beginner or more developed player. Goaltending is one of the key components to having a competitive division and that is why we offer a lower registration fee for commitment to the team. Equipment is available, if needed. Basic fundamentals and improvement in goaltending is also an opportunity we wish to bring to the league in the future to help enhance and develop growth. North Halton Girl's Hockey Women's Rec Division offers fun, exercise and camaraderie from the young to the "young at heart."
