General Information (Brantford Church Hockey League)

PrintGeneral Information


Here are the details of what this season will look like.  These changes are based on direction from the OHF, ALLIANCE Hockey, the City of Brantford and Brant County Health Unit. 

We will be running 2 separate seasons this year.
"Season 1" will begin in October and wrap up with championship games prior to Christmas break.
Season 2"
 will begin in January ending with championship games in March.  

Due to the special circumstances we find ourselves in this year, we have adjusted our fee structure and implemented a ONE-TIME REGISTRATION FEE which covers all admin costs such as Hockey Canada fees, player and league insurance, etc.

 Here are the UPDATED season fees for the 2020/21 Season.

 **BCHL is now able to accept E-transfers. Please send transfers to [email protected] and indicate the player name on the transfer payment.







Little Saints




U7 to U9 (Tyke & Novice)




U10 to U15 (Atom to Bantam)




U16 to U 21 (Midget & Juvenile)





Example - Registration fees for a U9 player for Season 1 (October to December) would be $100.00 + $150.00 = $250.00 
If you choose to also play Season 2 (January to March), you would NOT pay  another registration fee, only the Season 2 fee.


  • Players will be divided into age divisions of no more than 50 players.
  • REGISTRATION IS LIMITED SO PLEASE REGISTER ASAP TO GUARANTEE A SPOT.  Late registrations may have to wait for a January start date in Season 2.
  • Each group of 50 players will be divided into 4 teams and will play only within this division. Players can only play on 1 team.
  • Division schedules will be released by mid-September.
  • Near the end of the first season, registration will open for "Season 2".  New teams will be made for the second season but players will still play within the same division of no more than 50.
***If you are uncomfortable with the structure, costs or have concerns with safety measures, you will be able to withdraw your registration with no penalties.***

  • We will be organizing a select program (Ice availability permitting)
  • These teams will only be running practices to continue their development.
  • At this time, they will not be permitted to book games or tournaments but there may be the possibility for these events in the future.
  • Fees will be determined at a later date. 

    ***At this time, most practices and games will be at the Civic Center.  This may change due to ice availability.  Please review the current spectator protocols  below -
