Notice to all parents and players with CRHL:
We understand and sincerely apologize for the situation with our 2019-2020 season schedule. Due to an unfortunate circumstance in which our new scheduler resigned two weeks prior to the start of the season, we are in a difficult position of having to create a schedule on very short notice. We have been fortunate to have an individual step up to help us who has decades of hockey scheduling experience and is working tirelessly to make sure our kids can play. However, due to the unique nature of the CRHL as a local league in Clarington, there is a steep learning curve. We request at this time your understanding and patience with this non-ideal situation. Rest assured our Board of Directors is very involved, and is working diligently to ensure that we are able to continue to provide hockey this season, and to ensure that we have a solution in place for next season and for the future.
Thank you kindly, and we do appreciate your consideration in helping us get through this very challenging time as smoothly as possible.
Mark your calendars - the Annual General Meeting for the Clarington Recreational Hockey League will be held November 10th at 10am, South Courtice Arena in the Upper Viewing Room. This meeting is open to all parents and guardians of players in the CRHL, and is your chance to hear first-hand about your league, and to ask your questions. We hope to see you there.
Photos will be held October and 27th during practices for all house league teams.

The CRHL Supports Rowan’s Law
Rowan Stringer loved rugby. A competitive and keen athlete, she was captain of her high school’s team. Tragically, in May 2013, 17-year old Rowan died as the result of head injuries she sustained while playing rugby. In the week before her last game, Rowan was hit twice while playing, likely sustaining a concussion after each blow. Her concussions went unreported, and she continued to play. Rowan suspected something wasn’t right—she texted a friend about her condition and used Google to search for information about concussions. When she was hit again in her final game, Rowan suffered what is known as Second Impact Syndrome—catastrophic swelling caused by a second injury to a brain still healing from previous trauma. Rowan collapsed on the field on May 8, 2013, and died four days later (Ophea.net).
Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 makes it mandatory for sports organizations to: ensure that athletes under 26 years of age, parents of athletes under 18, coaches, team trainers and officials confirm every year that they have reviewed Ontario's Concussion Awareness Resources. (https://www.ontario.ca/page/rowans-law-concussion-safety
The CRHL is in full support of the Rowan’s Law and its intent to improve concussion awareness. As mandated in the new law, the CRHL now requires all players, parents/guardians, and team officials to take the following two steps:
a) Reviewed the concussion awareness resources;
b) Commit to the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct, which includes helping to prevent concussions, taking concussions seriously, and respecting the OHF removal and return to play protocol.
The CRHL has set the following deadlines:.
Monday - closed
Sunday - closed
Please be aware that due to registration numbers the decision has been made to merge the minor and major midget divisions into a single midget division.

The Clarington Thunder is now looking for sponsorships for the 2019-2020 hockey season.

Thank you to everyone for sponsored this 2018-19 season!
Please be aware that the OMHA has now stated that all players new to the association must have birth certificates attached to their hockey profiles.
Coaches will be asking parents to submit birth certificates to the office to add to player profiles. The CRHL will not keep a copy of these once the documents are added to the player profiles.
Keep up to date on CRHL News, Events and schedules on our new Facebook and Twitter Pages!
Keep current with your team's schedule, scores, and standings.
The OMHA requires that at least one parent or guardian for each player registered in the OMHA, and therefore the CRHL, must complete the online Respect in Sport - Parent Education Program as a condition of their child’s participation.
This course must be taken BEFORE you can register your child for play.
Once the course is taken, the certificate number obtained is to be used for player registrations in this and subsequent years.
2017-2018 Thank You to CRHL Sponsors
