The GTHA House program is our recreational hockey program for the youth in the Grand Traverse region. Our fees include the costs for ice time, referees fees, administrative costs, trophies and awards, team registration fees, coaching(2 per team) and referee expenses, Home tournament fee, district fees for 1 team and equipment costs. The registration fees do not include the lottery fundraiser, or any extra ice time or extra tournaments the team may participate in during the season.
The house season will begin with the draft skates. These skates will start in early September. All house players Squirts thru Bantams must participate in draft skates in September. There will be 2 draft skates for each age division. All skaters are expected to participate in all draft skates.
We take the player ratings from the coaches’ evaluations and try to form balanced house teams based upon the demonstrated abilities of the players. We will announce the teams at the Parent/Player meetings according to the following schedule:
Tuesday Sept 19th

GTHA is in the process of converting to one logo for all teams as an association. We as an association are the Traverse City Northstars. This includes house, travel and the girls teams.
Any spirit wear, hats, warmups etc can be purchased with the Traverse City Northstars logo. Embroid Me and Dave Harveys have these logos. You are not required to have them on your items for spirit wear. They will add the embroidering to the warmups. With the change, the warmups for the GTHA will be going to black.
Samples are available at Dave Harvey's to try on for sizing and pricing.
