AMHL Return to Play Update - Feb 18, 2021
Concluding our Regular Season & Spring Development Opportunity

AMHL has made the difficult decision to conclude the 2020-2021 House League Season.  The opportunity for our House League teams to return to game play activity at this point remains unknown, including the fact that our season would be coming to an end very soon.

As a direct result of the decision to conclude the 2020-2021 House league Season, AMHL has also recognized and identified the opportunity to operate a new 5-week spring skills/development program for most House League divisions under the current COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open Stage Red.

Families interested in participating in the 2021 House League Spring Development Program are requested to review the program timeline and details below, along with registering their interest via the AMHL site.  The program will only operate if there is sufficient interest and available ice-time from the city.  Registration will be based on a first come, first serve basis, along with sufficient Coaching/Volunteers to run such programming.

Credits and Refund

  • All families will be automatically receiving a credit to their Hockey Canada account with the decision to conclude the AMHL 2020-2021 House league Season.
  • Families interested in participating in the 2021 5-week Spring Development Program, can apply account credit towards the program.
  • Families can apply account credits towards next year registration or can apply for a refund through an online link via AMHL website.  The link will be published next week, with the refund process starting March 1.
  • The following credit amounts will be applied to your account depending on your division:









Refund amounts above apply to families who have paid the 2nd installment.
