The HTFA has four divisions including a womens division and plays games on Saturday mornings from early May until Championship Day in early October or late September.

Games are played at local high schools and Mohawk Sports Complex on the east mountain.
The season is under way now with 33 teams and over 400 players.

HTFA League Information

Thursday April 20, 2017

Hi all Team Reps

We have completed the work on the team fees for the HTFA 2017 season.

Remember, bring the amount needed to pay for the 3 games on artificial turf during the season on a weekday night (with Tuesday being the targeted night as often as possible). The league will vote, 1 vote per team whether the league would like to pay the extra fees for the 3 turf games. This will not increase the number of weekday games for teams. Non-tournament teams average 3-4 weekday games, while tournament teams average 7 games on weekdays.

The artificial turf vote applies to Mens League only. The Womens League will continue to play Monday at Sackville.

Womens League Fees

$1100

Mens League Fees

$1800 for 3 artificial turf games
$1600 for no artificial turf games

The vote will be 50% plus 1 to carry and have 3 artificial turf games.

See you Monday April 24, 2017 at 7:30 pm at Huntington Park Rec Centre.
