General Information (Brantford Church Hockey League)

PrintGeneral Information

BCHL has now opened registration for the upcoming 2020/2021 season. 

At this time, we are uncertain of what the season may look like on or off the ice as we are still awaiting guidance on what procedures we will be required to follow. Hockey Canada, OHF and Alliance are working to find a solution and we are in discussions with our municipalities regarding new policies and precautions in a post-COVID-19 world.
There are NO PAYMENTS REQUIRED at this time as we are uncertain of fees until we can confirm a format for our season.  Once this has been established,  we will inform all members of fees and season details. 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. 
How does registering now assist in planning?  If you register now, it will allow BCHL to make more realistic plans to meet any safety requirements set upon us by health officials and/or Hockey Canada.
Our hope would be for a full and regular season, but unfortunately, that does not seem likely.  So what might our season look like?  We really do not know at this time but BCHL is planning for a wide variety of scenarios and, once we have return to rink protocols, we will be able to share which plan we will be following. Rest assured that we will do whatever it takes to make sure we are able to return to hockey life as safely as possible!
We are as excited as you to get back on the ice and see all our wonderful BCHL families, but our first priority is the safety of our members. Until we see you at the rink, please stay safe, stay fit and stay positive!

***IMPORTANT - Parent Respect In Sport***

All families from U7 to U18 - at least one parent or guardian for each player registered in minor hockey will be required to complete the Respect in Sport - Parent Program as a condition of participation.  The one-hour online course is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure the game is enjoyable and respectful for themselves, their children and all other stakeholders in the game.  This is a required course from Hockey Canada and Alliance, and players cannot be approved on a roster until it is complete. 
• This course is mandatory in order for your child to be eligible to play. Failure to complete this course will restrict your child’s on ice participation.
• For more information and to complete the course, please visit:


We are always looking for volunteers for Coach/Assistant Coach/Trainers or to assist on the ice.  Please see the Coaching tab on our website for required courses and certificates.
Effective August 31, 2014, the ‘Respect in Hockey’ initiative now requires all Team Officials, On-ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate ‘Respect’ education.  For more information and to complete the required Respect in Sport coaching courses, please visit:
