The North York Rangers are proud of being a part of the 50 year tradition of the Goulding Park Hockey Association, in providing competitive hockey to the community at all levels. Combined with Goulding and the North York Rangers OHA Jr A team, we offer approximately 1,000 children the opportunity to learn and develop their hockey skills, from the age of 4 when a child first puts on skates through to our Juvenile AAA and OHA Junior A teams.

On April 5, 1995 Les Vinton the General Manager of the Goulding Park Hockey Club was given permission by the MTHL (before it became the Greater Toronto Hockey League or GTHL) to form a “Major series club”. At that time “current” MTHL policy required only that Goulding operate the Major division with a different name and have a separate General Manager.

Times have changed. Today we are required not only to have a separate name and General Manager, we are required to be incorporated separately from the Goulding Park Hockey Association.

As a community based not for profit association we operate only with volunteers who contributed more than 40,000 hours during the past season (AA and AAA combined).

The Executive of the North York Rangers AAA Hockey Club reports to a Board of Directors, which includes; Dave Mitchell, Harry Ort, John Carriere, Steve Davis, Brant Snow, Claude Desjardins and Wally Turner.

Philosophy & Objectives

It is the philosophy of the North York Rangers to provide a learning experience in a safe environment, both on and off the ice for every child who plays for the Club. All our coaches and their staff are expected to focus on player development with a secondary focus on winning.

It is not only the objective of the North York Rangers Club to develop players to the best of their ability and provide a facility to exceed, but also to provide every opportunity to become a fine citizen of this great country.

A friend of ours introduced a concept to us a few years ago and although it is widely used and accepted in business it also directly applies to the North York Rangers Hockey Club and all our divisions and affiliates


Every child who sets his (or her) feet on the ice for the first time at Goulding (and this can be at the age of 4), the North York Rangers start at the Minor Atom level (age 9), has the opportunity to grow and play at our highest level of competition the North York Rangers OHA Jr ‘A’.

We expect each team to make the play-offs and have an improvement in team statistics year over year. Not making the playoffs can be offset by the program of learning and development. We regularly discuss with each coach their progress.

Every year we have a number of players graduate from the “minor” GTHL division to our North York Rangers OHA Junior ‘A’ Team thereby maintaining and developing skill levels at a higher quality of competition. And at the same time empowering our players to advance their hockey careers and become exposed to scouts from American Universities.

Starting at a young age our players are introduced to the philosophies, systems and skills development necessary to succeed.

These are supported by all our coaches, executives and directors.
