The Ajax Pickering Raiders Rep Leagues represent the best opportunity for the elite players in Ajax and Pickering to represent our communities against other top caliber teams in the area. The Rep Leagues are comprised of 'AAA", 'AA', 'A', 'BB', 'MD' and 'Select' Leagues.
The 'AAA' teams range from U10-U18; these teams play in the AAA Eastern Hockey League (ETA).
The 'AA' teams range from U10-U18; these teams play in the Lakeshore League. The geographic boundaries for this league are Pickering to the west, Kingston to the east and Peterborough to the north.
Our 'A' teams play in the Lakeshore League. In geographic terms the Lakeshore League encompasses Pickering to the west, Kingston to the east, and into the Lindsay/Peterborough area to the north.
The BB teams play out of the Lakeshore League/York-Simcoe with geographic boundaries consisting of Clarington to the east, Peterborough to the north and Vaughan to the west.
Minor Development (MD) hockey is the first level of competitive hockey and is available to U15-U18 divisions, where there is demand in the Association. MD has become more popular over the last 5 years; local associations offer one MD team per division where registration numbers and player development allows it. MD is a non-checking league and in many cases is comparable to A/AE hockey without body contact; skill levels can vary. Currently our MD teams play out of the York-Simcoe loop, but this could change if there is more interest in the Lakeshore League to provide an MD loop.
'House League Select'
The House League Select teams consist of both Minor and Major aged players and provided players the opportunity to play at a higher level during Exhibition and Tournament play throughout the season.
