All teams MUST be able to start as early as 8am on Friday, January 17th (consideration will be given to out of town teams as much as possible).


Most teams will play 2 games on Friday and 1 on Saturday, followed by the playoff rounds on Sunday for those who qualify.

NOTE- The Bell Sensplex will be tournament headquarters for this tournament, however teams will be required to play games at other local facilities.


This is the 10th annual edition of the Capital House League Championships, which has firmly established itself as THE premier house league tournament and is hosted at the best facility in the National Capital Region.

Period Lengths: 3 x 10 minute stop-time periods

Teams can expect to play most, if not all, games against teams from other leagues in the round-robin portion (wherever possible). As a result, it may be necessary to cap the number of teams which will be admitted from each league. Please apply early to avoid disappointment.


Acceptance Notices for local teams will be issued on approximately October 15th and then sent on an ongoing basis.

In the Ottawa District, house league teams are ranked from 'A' (highest) to 'C' (lowest). There is no definite restriction on the number of MAJOR (2nd year) or MINOR (1st year) players at each level, but typically the 'C' level has more first year players and the 'A' level has more second year players.

"RED" Level teams should apply to either our 'A' or 'B' division depending upon the number of first/second year players. "WHITE" level teams should apply to either our 'B' or 'C' level.

The Bell Sensplex features plenty to compliment the action on the ice including:

  • Stanley's Restaurant & Bar
  • Lightning Blade Pro Shop

Teams will play most (if not all) games at the Bell Sensplex, but some teams will play at other local facilities including the state-of-the-art Cavanagh Sensplex in the West Carleton Community Complex - Kinburn, ON.
