THE SPIRIT OF THE LEAGUE

The Women’s Hockey Club of Toronto (WHCT) is an adult recreational non-body-checking ice hockey league open to women, trans and nonbinary folks who are queer/trans/nonbinary-inclusive.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the League suspended operation in March 2020 and hopes to resume in January 2021. Further information will be posted as it becomes available.

About WHCT

The Women’s Hockey Club of Toronto (WHCT) is an adult recreational non-body-checking ice hockey league open to women who are lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, two-spirited, nonbinary or allied. All players are welcome regardless of skill level — beginners just learning to play, mid-range and experienced players. The League was first created in 1993 to offer safe space for gay and gay-positive women to play hockey. In the more than 25 years since, WHCT has progressed into a League that is also inclusive of and welcoming to trans and non-binary players.

WHCT is believed to be the only queer women’s hockey league in Canada and certainly one of the largest in North America. The League has 12 teams, each with 15 players including goalie and every attempt is made to balance the teams with a mixture of players from all skill levels

Our Vision

The success of the WHCT is a result of the commitment of its members to abide by the founding spirit of the league: to play the game of hockey in a sportsperson-like manner respecting not only teammates and opposing players, but also the referees, timekeepers, Moss Park Arena staff and members of the WHCT Collective.

Our Mission

To create an environment where queer, trans, nonbinary and allies are encouraged to participate, regardless of their experience or skill level.

To allow equal access by providing financial options and solutions that work towards breaking cost-prohibitive barriers.

To develop an organization that provides its members with the opportunity to meet other women with similar interests.
