President's Message

I am pleased to be your new President for this season. Having been involved in the league for several years now, from player, to team rep, to executive member, I have experienced how great our league is. We have a great tradition that we rely on, with values of fun, fellowship, and fair play that is the pillar we have as a league. Also, with keeping a focus on the health of the league, our executive has a couple new changes this year that we are moving forward with. All of this is to have our PROHL league be not only one of the best in Peterborough, but in Canada!

Starting this year, our league will be moving to two divisions. They will be named division 1 for ages 35-55 and division 2 for 55+. This change is due to a re-configuring of our divisions due to declining registrations. Moving forward, we may go back to three divisions for next year, but we will see. The goal is to have enough teams in each division, with a mix of hockey abilities. One advantage right away is that the late ice slot has been eliminated this year. We will have our ice times be start at 8pm, with only two weeks starting at 9pm. Thanks again to the City of Peterborough for accommodating us on this. Our league will begin on September 22 and conclude March 23. Don’t forget to check our league schedule for dates. Also, on the last league night, be sure to attend the awards presentations upstairs in the lounge area.

A couple reminders... - if you are reading this this message and have not submitted a Registration Form for this upcoming season, please fill one out. You will be put on a waiting list and if there is availability on a team, we will contact you. All post dated cheques will be cashed by July 31st. The Draft will take place in the first week of August. The schedule will be posted, along with the Team Rosters by the 20th of August.

Again, looking forward to another great hockey season! Remember, the PROHL is where the PRO’s play!

Mike Ivey,
President 2017-18
