Places for shinny in North York?

Hey guys,

Been lurking around for a while and finally getting back into hockey. I bought myself a pair of Bauer Vapor X5.0 and love them. I was looking around and had trouble finding rinks/parks in the North York (GTA) area that allow no full equipment to play.

I understand most places require gloves and a helmet at the minimum which is fine. I'd like to play a bit before buying full equipment and possibly joining a league.

Anybody know any good spots to go play with minor equipment in the North York area?

(Apologies if posted in the wrong area).

It appears all Canlan rinks require full equipment from what I read on their site.
Chesswood arena will do shinny without full equipment?

Most, if not all, of the outdoor city rinks are now open for the season. You can check out the website here for ice times: http://www1.toronto.ca/parks/prd/ska...ckey/index.htm

Awesome thanks Pog Form. Do all the outdoor rinks have the same equipment regulations?

I think helmets are "mandatory" though not always enforced.

It is essentially pond hockey. Ice hockey played without full equipment. At the very least it is just your skates and a stick. I am sure most if not all today people wear gloves for warmth and protection. Idk if there are official rules and if they enforce more equipment but I am sure most people today also wear a helmet.

From there I would say you could wear shin pads but that is really it. Anything else and your basically playing pick up ice hockey.

No goalies I believe. Instead there is a wooden/whatever material wall where the goal line would be and there is a hole about the size of a puck (i think ive seen two to three holes in some videos on a wooden board). So basically there is no high shots.

The nature of the game is to have a free flowing, full skilled version of hockey keeping the puck flat on the ground I guess besides saucers.



Summary Short- Its hockey played with very little equipment and no goalies.
