Adult Leagues in Toronto
 
:help::help::help:

Kind of new here and I'm looking for info on the local beer league scene - having a really hard time which I find surprising given this is such a hockey city!

Basically all I'm looking for is something in the west end, preferably, with a good group of people. I always see guys with the permits at the local outdoor rinks and that looks like lots of fun!

On a scale of D - A (A = best) I'd probably fall in somewhere between C & B. I could probably skate with A but I don't know how effective I'd be.

I'm also unclear about when leagues begin & end.

At this time you'll have a hard time finding a league to play in as all of the leagues are well underway. Most of the major beer leagues in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) Winter - start in September and end in April Summer - start in May and end in August. At this time most of the teams are already established. You'll probably just have to play pick up/drop in for now and if you're interested look for a team/league to join for the summer season. Some guys have already given you a good start on all of the major beer leagues. If you go to the ASHL site they also have a classified section where you can search for teams who may need a player but at this time that's rare, good luck!

What is the west end to you? That may help with suggestions.

Anyone know which rink the HNA finals are held at?

www.adulthockeyclub.com is a good place to get pickup games. I think Friday's low-mid game would be good for you.

I just looked at that ASHL site. Odd name for a hockey league to have 'safe' in there. Granted there are things that can be done to lessen risk, but by nature of the sport, I'd hardly say 'safe' is appropriate as a name. Heck, walking out your door each day can hardly be called safe.

Check out true north hockey. They are mostly at rinx which isnt great but they also have games at mastercard and ricoh. Location wise it's not bad for high park. I play there on Sundays as they have 3x15 minutes stop time and its hard to pay for 10-10-12 after that.

ASHL is generally a higher level of play but is further out from you. They also, IMO, have better reffing.

LOL, I played there in the summer and you're right it was far from safe. As per other comments it's a more competitive league than True North. Good luck to the OP finding a team.
