16 Dec UPDATED: NYHL Winter Season Paused
Updated as of January 4
This week the Government of Ontario announced new temporary restrictions as the province moves to a modified Stage Two of the Roadmap to Reopen.
This will effect the NYHL Winter season as the restrictions include the pause of indoor sports which are not permitted for a period of at least 21 days beginning on January 5, 2022 at 12:01am. These dates are subject to change based on trends in public health and other health system indicators. As a result, NYHL teams and players cannot participate in any indoor activities. Indoor sports facilities, as with the pause of indoor sports, are closed up to and including at least January 26.
The NYHL has every intention on continuing and completing the Winter Season as soon as restrictions are relaxed or lifted. Despite all of the difficulties and challenges brought about by the pandemic, we appreciate the continued support and understanding from our membership and look forward to hockey’s return.
During this time, the NYHL office will be working remotely. If you have any urgent business, please contact Mario Aguiar at 416-399-0127.
The NYHL will be following the GTHL’s announced pause of all hockey activities effective January 2 up to and including January 12 due to Public Health advice and uncertainty created around changing regulations. This pause affects all hockey activities which includes games, practices and tournaments.

Further to the announcement made on December 16, it is with great concern for the safety of our players and membership that the North York Hockey League has decided to pause the remainder of the Fall season. The pausing of participating house league seasons and the rising number of cancelled games due to COVID-19 exposure are the driving factors that influenced this decision to pause the season. The health and safety of our players, parents and coaches are the League’s top priority during this pandemic. For the time being, the League’s tentative return date for all NYHL hockey activities will be January 2. Future updates will be made here and on social media. We hope that everyone stays safe and has a happy holidays.
Effective as of December 16, the North York Hockey League will be pausing the remainder of the Fall hockey season due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Future updates will be shared via our website and social media.
