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  

Squirts/U10         530pm                          Bantams/U14       7pm

Wednesday  Sept 20th

Scrip is another great way to use your money for your expenses.

Scrip Program-select home tab, scrip program and shop with scrip button.

Scrip involves purchasing gift cards from a list of retailers.  Each retailer gives a percent back to the organization you select.  Every 3 months you will receive a check for the amount you have earned. You can then use that money to pay towards your players hockey or cash the check and spend it as you wish.

For example,

Meijer         3%    GTHA gets 1%  you get 2%  

   if you spend $200/wk  for 52 weeks  = $10,400 -2%= 10,192    $208 back to you

Speedway  4%  GTHA gets 1% 

If you by gas at $40 wk X 52 wks = $2080 -3%=2017    $63 back to you

Starbucks  7%

Morning coffee at $20wk X 52 wks = $1040 -6%= $63 back to you

Amazon   3%

Spend $1000 per year and receive $30 back to you

$208 + 63+ 63+ 30 =$364  towards your players fees.

                             A little planning will add up to free money .






GTHA Warm Ups Orders

Warm ups will be available to order thru Dave Harveys.

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.
