Hope is on the horizon. We miss seeing you and we know you are missing the normal spring hockey activities. However, we are pleased for the start of a “return to normal” by offering registration starting this Friday May 15th at 8 a.m.
Registration Link at the bottom of Registration page.
We have decided to maintain the same fee as last season for the upcoming season in spite of our rising cost base. Final fees for the season will be determined by the month Hockey Canada determines it is safe to commence hockey.
We will also have a different fee structure than in previous years to be sensitive to the current environment.
***Please note that as of June 1st, the OHF is no longer allowing us to take a deposit***
Total fees will be determined when the final start date is established by The OHF and the GTHL.
As of now, we expect the TOTAL fees to be the following:
October 1 $575
November 1 $525
December 1 $475
January 1 $425
In light of the 2019-20 season ending early, we are offering a $50 discount to returning players.
In order to help us plan for the upcoming season please register to hold your spot The whole payment will be due at a later date (TBD) when things are hopefully clearer. As always, if there are financial constraints please reach out to our treasurer who will work through them with you (all in confidence).
When we have a better handle on next season we will confirm the final amount that will be due.
*Please note this is for House League/Select Only
*If you are playing GTHL you do not register
*If October is the starting date, September will be filled with all GTHL and Select tryouts.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Food Drive Tuesday April 28th.
The Forest Hill 2011 Gold Select team initiated a "Force for Good" food drive and the results have been amazing. CityNews did a profile and several of our players we able to share how and why they are helping. Congrats Team! Check out the report.
Dear Forest Hill Families,
We would like to share the decision the FHHA Board has made after monitoring the current situation we find ourselves.
First and foremost is our concern for everyone's safety and hope you are practicing social/physical distancing, so that we can do our part to help get the virus under control and get back to normal as soon as possible.
It has been a very strange month and we were all disappointed to have the end of our season cancelled. The spring tryout season for both the select and GTHL program has been put "on hold" as well, but it seems clear that no tryouts will likely take place until the fall. Any information as to when they will take place will be communicated as soon as we have it.
There is still uncertainty as to the timing on when hockey will be allowed to start. We are following the directives of our governing bodies (Hockey Canada, the OHF and the GTHL) as well as the mandates set forth by the City of Toronto and the Government of Ontario.
We know that everyone is anxious to get back to normal and is looking forward to next season. We are as well and are again prepared to offer what we feel is a great program. The arena is a place of great comfort to many and a very important community hub.
With that in mind, WE HAVE DECIDED TO DELAY REGISTRATION (originally slated to open April 15th) UNTIL MAY 15TH (for returning players) AND JUNE 1ST FOR NEW PLAYERS.
As in previous years, returning players will have priority and will have their spots held until May 31st. We are hoping that in that time frame there will be more clarity. This timing is consistent with many of the other clubs in the GTA who we have been in constant contact.
We are hopeful that the season will be able to start in its normal timeframe. However, we are cognizant of the uncertainty and as such are asking for a minimal deposit in order to help us plan properly for next season. We are sensitive to the needs of the community and the financial toll that Coronavirus has taken and will be putting in place a payment structure that will help ease the burden that everyone is under. All information will be posted on the website as we have it.
It has become clear that in these times we cannot overlook how important it is to have support within and from your community. In that light, we ask and hope that when you register your child you will consider becoming a volunteer. The league is run by a group of very hard working and dedicated volunteers, but we can always use more, especially at the convener level in the younger age groups. It really does "take a village" and any contribution you can offer will be very helpful to the enjoyment of all.
There are a few other matters which are currently delayed that we need to address.
1) Photos (team and individual)- the delivery of team photos (and the individual packages people bought) were scheduled to be delivered the week when the quarantine took place. Once we have them in our possession, we will be in contact so that we can arrange distribution. Thank you for your patience.
2) Goalie Equipment - for those of you still in possession of the junior goalie equipment we appreciate you taking care of it and we will come up with a suitable plan for it to be returned as soon as some of the measures are lifted.
3) End of season awards and volunteer dinner - This is a very important event where we get to recognize the achievement of our volunteer community. At this point we are still hopeful that we will be able to have this great event and will communicate on this when we have more details.
4) AGM - the league's annual AGM will take place on May 25th at 6 pm. In light of the current restrictions it will take place via Zoom. All information will be posted on the website.
We miss seeing everybody at the rink and cannot wait to get going again next season.
Thank you for being a part of the Forest Hill Hockey Association family.

This year the OHL and GTHL have introduced a new requirement, that ALL Players, Parents and Coaching Staff participating in hockey governed by the OHF and GTHL must read and share with their respective players, a Concussion Awareness brief and submit an acknowledgement that they have read it.
THIS IS MANDATORY FOR EVERYONE.
IF YOU DO NOT REGISTER AND SUBMIT, YOU OR YOUR PLAYER WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO COMPETE IN THE 2019-2020 SEASON UNTIL IT IS COMPLETED.
Please go onto the following link, register your child and or yourself. If you have more than one child they both can be registered during one session.
The FHHA is being held responsible for fulfilling this requirement that is an important step in protecting our players from concussion injury that is serious and claimed the life Rowan Stringer.
