PrintIce Times and Rinks
The Dolphins use a variety of City Rinks for practice ice times and the Ford Performance Centre (FPC) for all home games and weekday practices. The Female game of hockey is growing - be a part of it!!

Ford Performance Centre is the home of the Maple Leafs, Toronto Marlies and Toronto PWHL.

Practice Ice

As a Dolphin in the Rep program you can expect two weekday practices / week at any of our five rinks:
  • Ford Performance Centre (FPC)
  • Etobicoke Centennial
  • Mimico
  • Long Branch
  • Albion


All home games are scheduled Friday nights, Saturday or Sundays at the FPC on Rink 4 - the Phins' Rink. Typically there is one home game and one away game each weekend. The Phins participate in the OWHL - Southern League which stipulates you will have 22 (20 for U11 and U9) league games which lead into playoffs resulting in at least another 6 playoff games (if you make it).  There are also provincial playdowns which are qualifiers for the OWHA All Ontario Championship - the pinnacle of the season. The number of qualifier games played depends on the format chosen for the teams age and category (i.e. U15A, U13B can have different formats) and will vary year to year based on the number of teams in your Regions category. Finally teams typically enter in 4 or 5 tournaments resulting in another 16 - 20 games, at minimum. A typical single season will have your daughter involved in at least 50 games and close to 50 practices - that's a lot of ice.


The Season starts Labour Day and will end the week after Easter when Provincials (see above) are finalized.
League play on the OWHL-Southern commences October 1st and finishes the middle of February. Fitting in 22 league games with tournaments interspersed makes for a fun, busy and exciting season. The game is growing - be a part of it!!
