THIS IS BIG!!! NEW TRI CITY HOCKEY LEAGUE ANNOUNCED FOR OUR HOUSELEAGUE PLAYERS!!
Cambridge, Kitchener & Waterloo Minor Hockey Associations announce the formation of the Tri Cities Hockey League (TCHL)!
The Spirit of Hockey Unifying Three Cities!
While the 2022-23 season’s whistles and skates are retired for the summer, the Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo Minor Hockey Association Board Members have been busy at work creating the Tri Cities Hockey League (TCHL).
The Tri Cities Hockey League (TCHL) was born of a shared vision to create a hockey league that not only showcases remarkable skill and competition between the three Cities, but also fosters unity and regional pride.
This joint effort aims to strengthen the bond between our neighboring Centres, transcend boundaries, and create a sense of community that extends beyond the ice rink.
This collaboration marks a remarkable moment in the hockey history of our Region – bringing together the collective strength of 3 Associations to form a fun, competitive experience for all House League players.
Participants will experience some travel, as their representative counterparts do; however, it will be limited between Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo.
Practices, where applicable, will continue to be scheduled at the respective home rinks and families will recognize game days and times similar to past seasons.
"Waterloo Minor Hockey is thrilled to be part of the inaugural Tri City Hockey League launching in the 2023-24 Season" , said Greg Best, President of Waterloo Minor Hockey. "Our goal with recreational hockey has always been to provide a fun environment for our hockey players to show and grow their skills - now by adding this additional component of outside play with our partners in the CMHA and KMHA, we are confident the league will foster development, growth and healthy competition while still maintaining the spirit of recreational hockey. On behalf of the WMHA, I would like to express our gratitude to the KMHA and CMHA for their collaborative and positive approach to creating this new exciting league. Can' t wait to watch the puck drop for the first ever TCHL game in early October 2022!!
If you are already a House League player, we look forward to seeing you in the new format.
If you have stepped away from house league hockey, we welcome you back to share in this great new opportunity.
If you are new to hockey, there is a place for you on one of these exciting teams.
By joining together all three associations, we will have enough capacity to tier each division into smaller groupings part way through the season. These groupings will allow teams to play games against opponents closer to their own skill level, so everyone has a best-in-class experience.
Together, let’s embark on a journey that will create lasting memories for all involved!
Stay tuned for more information throughout the summer!
