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.


We invite all players to come over to The Black Bull and en Continue reading “ARL Championship Night [Update]”


July Survey Results

Thank you to the many players who responded to the survey that we created to gauge players opinions regarding our hockey league. The response was overwhelming.

The vast majority of players are in favour of the status quo with a few adjustments.

The modifications will likely surround working towards balancing teams and divisions as best as possible as we head into the Fall/Winter season and at intervals during the season. As a Committee we are currently working on the definite logistics and we will update the league as a whole after Labour Day through our website, newsletter, Facebook page and e-mails to team captains.

Playoff Schedule – Summer 2016

Welcome to the ARL Summer 2016 Post Season!

We hope everyone has had a blast in the Regular Season. It’s now time to bring on the Playoffs!

The Playoff schedule has now been posted. The format this season will be a 3-round semi-round robin. Every team starts with a clean slate.  Your record in these 3 games will determine your placement in the 4th and final round. Even in the Playoffs, the ARL is about fun first and foremost. The same rules of the regular season still apply. In order to keep a fair playing field for all teams, only goalies and female poolies will be allowed during the playoffs (and only in the event you don’t have one playing).

The Championship Night will take place on Friday August 19th. See below for the current placeholder time slots. Best of luck to all teams! Continue reading “Playoff Schedule – Summer 2016”

Welcome to the Spring/Summer season

Welcome to the Spring/Summer season. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting four months of hockey.

We wanted to send this message to all participants prior to the season in order to make you aware of a few changes as we head into the new session.

  1. There will be no shoot outs in the regular season. A tie will award one point per team.
  2. There will be no “Hot Dog” rule in Division 1. The remaining divisions will still have the “Hot Dog” rule.
  3. We are still adhering to the 24 hour rule, for on ice issues. Of course there can be extenuating circumstances, however, 24 hours can make for much clearer thoughts.

Off ice, we ask that ARL players enjoy the league Facebook page. There is lots of friendly banter, fun content and some great photos by ARL player Michael Durrant. On occasion, this page is a source of communication between the ARL Committee and players

Speaking of which, one other important change related to ARL communication involves each division having a representative from the committee as your team captain’s first means of communication when discussing any issues related to ARL activity. We ask that everyone follow the chain of command to ensure that questions are answered in an orderly way.

Players communicate with captains. Captains will either deal with the situation directly or within their team, or they will forward the question to the Division Convener. The Division Convener will either deal with the situation with the Captain or move it forward to the Committee as a whole. Once the issue is resolved, communication will then move back down through the chain from the Committee to the Division Convener, to the team captain and then to the players. As a group, the Committee and Captains hope this creates a positive flow of information through the league and that all participants are involved on a need to know basis.

The Division Conveners are:

Division 1 – Patte Beltrame
Division 2 – Jeff Topping
Division 3 – Jim Sleno
Division 4 – Pat Baranowski
Division 5 – Ted Lindsay

Finally, please take notice of the ever evolving website created by ARL players Cody Lusk and Bruce Johnson. There are many improvements to the site since January so by all means go familiarize yourself with everything the new site has to offer.

We wish you all the best in the upcoming season and as always keep the ARL spirit in mind while playing.

Keep your stick on the ice.


The ARL Committee
