Being a Goalie in House League.
Please see the section GOALIES IN HOUSE LEAGUE for more detailed information.  
In divisions where there are more teams than goalies, the CVHA reserves the right to not assign goalies to a permanent team, but rather rotate them between teams in the division. We have implemented this strategy based on feedback from our Convenors, Coaches and parents.

Please note, we have a new fee structure for Senior Goalies in the PEEWEE division and higher. 

The CVHA provides use of free goalie equipment to those who sign up as goalies from the MINOR ATOM to the BANTAM age levels.  Having available goalie equipment allows for those who may want to try playing but aren't ready to invest in a full set of gear without knowing if they want to continue.  It helps in reducing the cost to those that play in net by providing the specialized equipment (Chest protector, catching glove, blocker, leg pads and throat protection and a hockey bag for it all).  

We encourage those that want to be goalies to make sure to register as a goalie, and you will be notified by the league and coaches of when equipment will be available for pick-up before the season starts. 


Can I request that my child play with his friend for car-pooling purposes?
This year there will be no requests taken due to COVID-19 and the physical distancing that needs to occur. Carpooling is strongly discouraged. 

When do teams play and practice?

House league programming does occur on the Saturdays and Sundays.

Unfortunately, at the start of the season the CVHA Office will not have access to team, division or arena schedules. These will be communicated to you in October by the Coaches and Convenors in each division. During the season all team schedules will be posted online and should be the resource used, as this is the most up to date information.
