Hockey – Boys

Trinity College School’s boys hockey program includes two teams. The Varsity team, or Bigside, is typically made up of older and more experienced players. Our second team, or Junior Varsity (Middleside), is a springboard to playing at the Bigside level and is open to all grades.


The hockey season starts in mid-November at the beginning of the winter term. Our teams play in the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA), a league made up of independent schools from across Ontario. They play a 10-12 game regular season schedule, plus playoffs. We supplement the league schedule with exhibition games as well as one local tournament, for a total of approximately 20 games each season.


  • Between games, practices and off-ice sessions, the teams are together at least five times per week – typically on the ice four times. This provides an ideal ratio of two practices to every game day.
  • Off-ice training programs are designed to develop strength, conditioning and, most importantly, overall athletic ability.
  • A built-in video system in our rink is used for honing team systems and tactics.
  • Support for players interested in pursuing hockey after TCS is provided.
  • Dedicated goalie sessions with a goalie coach are provided.


We are very fortunate to have our own arena on campus. The Peter Campbell Memorial Rink provides us ample ice time to support three teams and the Bigside (Varsity) and Middleside (Junior Varsity) team have a dedicated dressing room with individual compartments (“stalls”) for players to store equipment for the season. The rink is often available during the day, after school and on weekends for informal practice and shinny sessions.

TCS’s athletic facilities also include eight full-size multi-purpose fields for football, soccer, rugby, cricket and field hockey, an indoor pool and a 5km cross-country running course that hosted the 2002 and 2017 Ontario high school championships. Our new athletic centre (2017) includes such facilities as a resistance and cardio training room, three new gymnasiums (for a total of five) and two new squash courts (for a total of five), in addition to classroom, changeroom and office space. There is ample opportunity for our hockey players to train both in and out of season. TCS also has a new, state-of-the-art physiotherapy clinic on campus, staffed full time by two certified athletic therapists.


Our coaching staff works diligently to identify student-athletes who we feel will fit into our school program. Above all, we look for hockey players who are strong academically and can handle the rigours of a full hockey schedule and a complete academic program. We also believe that good hockey players are born from good athletes – athletes who can excel in different sports – and all of our players are expected to be contributors on both fall and spring teams.
