League Overview:

The Sensplex facililties are proud to announce another key initiative to support the local hockey community in our collective return to hockey during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our team of hockey program professionals has been working hard, consulting with government officials, competitive hockey parents, and coaches from our region; all with the goal of coming up with a plan that meets the needs of public health and safety, AND that gets kids playing hockey again. It is with huge excitement and pride that we unveil the Inaugural Sensplex Summer AAA League hosted by the SSHD AAA Hockey Club.

Space in this league is extremely limited, so please follow the link below to sign up.

Attention 2010 and 2013 players!

We have exciting opportunities available for individual players to sign up for teams in the 2010 and 2013 division. Follow the links below for more information on each team:

Minor Atom – 2010

Pre-Novice – 2013

League Information:

  • Each team will be scheduled for league play on three of five weekends in August.
    • Game dates will be: Aug 7-9, Aug 14-16, Aug 21-23, Aug 28-30
    • Each team will receive a “bye week” so that parents may count on at least one of the first three weekends away from the rink.
  • Teams will play a combined total of 12 games, concluding with a league championship weekend where all teams will be in action (four games per weekend played).
  • Games will be played 4-on-4 skaters + goalie on full ice for all divisions, with the exception of Pre-Novice 2013 which will be played 3-on-3 + goalie on half ice.
  • Rosters are limited to a maximum of 11 players (skaters and goalies combined), with the exception of league host SSHD AAA teams (who will have expanded rosters, but not be permitted to dress more than 11 players per game). Rosters may not be altered at any point during the season. Teams are not required to dress the maximum number of players per game. That is at the discretion of each team. If players are forced to miss game(s), they may not be replaced by anyone other than those on your original league roster. For this reason, we recommend having at least 10 players on your roster (including any substitutes who may be needed).
  • Teams will play in divisions of no more than four teams, to ensure that the total number of players in each division does not exceed 50 (per government regulations). This means that space in this league will be extremely limited, and in high demand. Some divisions may operate with as few as three teams.
  • The total cost to participate in this league will be $3,000 per team (all-inclusive).
  • Teams will play in divisions of no more than four teams, to ensure that the total number of players in each division does not exceed 50 (per government regulations). This means that space in this league will be extremely limited, and in high demand. Some divisions may operate with as few as three teams.
  • In order to ensure safety for all players in the league, teams in the league are not permitted to play in out-of-town tournaments. Any player who participates in an out-of-town tournament will not be permitted to play in this league until 14 days have passed, or a negative COVID-19 test is produced.
  • A maximum of two coaches and a minimum of one certified trainer must be on each bench. At least one certified coach must provide an NCCP Coaching Number on their application and be present for all games.
  • Proof of team insurance must be provided electronically before each team’s first game.
  • In addition to previously established COVID-19 screening procedures, any person who has attended an event or gathering (including sports tournament) other than those which are permitted under Ontario’s current re-opening phase will not be admitted into a Sensplex facility.

League Features

  • All games will be played at one of our three premium Sensplex facilities (Bell, Cavanagh, Richcraft)
  • Parents can watch! While spectators are currently not permitted to remain inside the Sensplex facilities during games, the Sensplex has come to an agreement with Hockey TV to pay for the broadcast costs on behalf of the community; enabling all games to be streamed LIVE or on-demand for parents to watch in their own homes or on their mobile devices anytime.
  • Championship teams will receive prizing.

Game Format and Rules

  • Games will be played using modified rules to reduce incidental contact, severely punish intentional contact, and promote physical distancing, while still making sure the game is very much “still hockey”.
    • 2005 to 2012 divisions will be played full-ice 4-on-4 (four skaters + 1 goaltender)
    • 2013 division will be played on a modified half-ice surface 3-on-3 (3 skaters + 1 goaltender)
    • No face-offs
    • A 90 second line change buzzer will be used for 2011-2013 divisions, while other divisions will complete line changes as desired.
    • Teams will not change ends mid-game to avoid unnecessary two-way traffic near bench areas
