About the MHL:

  • The Mississauga Hockey League is a Non-Profit Organization set up to provide recreational hockey to the young residents of Mississauga, both boys and girls
  • Non-residents are welcome, subject to restrictions on total numbers, and will be assessed a non-resident participation fee by the City of Mississauga
  • The MHL is an affiliate to the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Mississauga and reports to the GTHL (Greater Toronto Hockey League)
  • The MHL is comprised of six Area Associations, whose information appears further down this page… Applewood, Erindale, Heartland, Lorne Park Clarkson, Meadowvale, and Port Credit.
  • The MHL is also affiliated with the Mississauga Crusaders, an organization geared to providing special needs children, youth and adults the opportunity to play hockey, regardless of their skating abilities and hockey skills.
  • On average, we hit the ice with 4,000+ players and 250+ teams.

How to Register:

  • Select which of the 6 Area Associations you’d like to join (See below for their corresponding Home rinks and for links to their respective websites)
  • There are no geographic boundaries within Mississauga and the choice of Association is up to you.  (Note that your weekly practices will be held at your Home rink, whereas your weekly games will be throughout Mississauga, though a significant percentage should be at your Home rink.)
  • Registration commences on May 1st and acceptance is based upon space rather than skill level.  If you haven’t played before, or even skated before, no worries… we’ll find a spot for you where you’ll learn the game and play with fellow beginners.

After You’ve Registered:

  • After you’ve registered, your Association will contact you to confirm your registration and advise your next steps, the primary of which is “Evaluations”.
  • Evaluations take place in early to mid-September and enable the coaches and the League to assess each player’s ability and to place him or her on the appropriate team.
  • The first 6 weeks of the MHL season represent our team and player convening period and allow the coaches and the League to refine the evaluation process.
  • During the convening period the MHL Games Schedule will be posted only 1 week at a time.  Once convening ends (the first Sunday of November) a rolling 6-week schedule will be posted.

If you have any questions or require additional information, we’d be happy to hear from you… give us a call at the MHL Office, 905-607-1118, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
