Thank you to the many ARL players who joined us last night at Pub 21 for the party to close out the 2017/18 Fall/Winter season. There are a lot of people to thank for a great event last night and for a fun season.
It all starts with the drop of the puck so we want to say thank to the referees who do such a good job maintaining order and keeping the ARL games running smoothly. Their unique approach also keeps things light (most of the time). The ARL refs are a great group of people and they are truly a part of the league. They are appreciated.
Next, we would like to thank the timekeepers who show up week after week and sit in cold arena to run the clock. It may look easy but they do it well. For many, it is their first job. They are learning as they go and they are doing it for us. We are lucky to have them. A special thanks to Bruce Johnson for coordinating this group.

Every season, we all get a day to step out on to the ice and stare right at our in-house volunteer photographer, Michael Durrant, as we try not to blink at the wrong time. For some of you, that day will be this upcoming weekend (Jan 26 and 28) as we take part in the first round of team photos.
We have been able to secure some ice time for our annual Boxing Day Tournament. It will be held on Tuesday December 26th at Wave Twin Rinks from 7 pm through midnight.
There will be a guarantee of four games. We are looking for four teams of 15 players and 1 goalie. Positions will be held on a first come first served basis. Bruce has been kind and brave enough to take on this hefty project. He is confident there will be 60 plus ARL players and friends to occupy the rosters spots and create a fun event for many. The price will be $65 per person.
Deadline for registering will be Tuesday December 19th. Teams will be built immediately up to and following the deadline and captains and players will be notified as soon as possible once everything is done.
Here are a few things you need to know for Championship Night on Friday and the games that will take place on Friday and Sunday. Every team will play this weekend on either Friday or Sunday. Friday’s games are mostly ‘Gold Medal’ games and the games on Sunday are ‘Bronze Medal’ games.
The schedule was posted on the website and Facebook earlier today.
Congratulations on another excellent season. With Championship Night just around the corner we wanted to update you on what is going on for this evening. The schedule will be released very soon. We are in the process of finalizing every matchup.Posted.
With The Crossbar being closed the Committee worked on a couple of different scenarios and we decided on the one that we felt was best…
We will be holding the Championship Night festivities at The Black Bull Pub which is on Guelph Line just south of Mainway, mere minutes from The Wave.
What an incredible night! I’ve experienced a lot of exciting moments in my short hockey career, but what I witnessed last night by far surpasses all of that. This idea came to light on Thursday morning. Our expectation and goal was to raise $500 to send to Fort McMurray. We purchased 1000 tickets. By 8:15, we were making a dash to purchase another 600. I always knew this was a great league with a great group of people…last night changed my mind…this is a phenomenal league with a phenomenal group of people.
