Some Cinderella teams ?? Jun 7th, 2018 Posted By: Art Bevis


Summer Hockey at MAGNA is already in its fourth week. Looks like there are several teams that have bumped up their rosters a bit from last year. Every division is proving to be competitive in the skill level that it ranks with so many shootout wins. This shows parody. What more could you ask for. Penalty minutes are at an all time low and only a couple of teams still have some player conduct concerns but nothing out of the norm. I am so grateful for the continued support from so many players in the community. Thank you for your confidence in us to give you your monies worth on and off the ice summer after summer. 

We have launched social media accounts and are now on TWITTER @NDH_Hockey AND FACEBOOK @NewDirectionHockey. There are a few surprises to make the league even better for all of the participants. 

Cheers, Art Bevis, NDH-2018

The New Direction Hockey Way Feb 3rd, 2018 Posted By: Art Bevis

We will continue our summer hockey programs in 2018, again playing at The Magna Center in Newmarket. This is one of the finest facilities for Ice Hockey anywhere. New Direction Hockey is dedicated first and foremost to the safety of its players. This means strictly enforced non-contact hockey. We provide a competitive league in a safe and friendly environment for people who have to go to work in the morning. Please carefully read and familiarize yourself and your team with our rules.

Men's Adult Hockey programs are organized from a select few Ice Hockey facilities in and around the G.T.A. The emphasis is usually based on the numbers' game, with very little importance geared toward quality. Most Hockey teams are now recognizing this and are searching out for the best available place to play. Loyalty and dedication from a full team of quality people lays a strong foundation to a successful Men's League. It is my goal to enhance that reputation and maximize our standing with as many hockey players possible.

The New Direction Hockey philosophy has a very positive reputation in the recreational hockey industry over several decades. Along with a team of quality people that, together, we have over 50 years of experience in the "sphere" of recreational hockey.

In the G.T.A. the industry is a lot smaller than you may imagine. Recreational Hockey in metro is a very tight group. Team reps do their homework in this day and age. They want service, service, service and GOOD VALUE. They want the right people to provide this, and they know who is good and who is not. Teams and reps need a "heads up" as to the quality of people running their night out with the boys.

Hockey programs build successfully with the needs of the players being first and foremost. I remain confident that a high level of success will continue for us in this industry. I will continue to direct my energy toward a common goal of an unconditional commitment to you, to continuing to represent the best organized Men's Recreational Hockey Program in the G.T.A. I am forever grateful for your undying support.

With Sincerity,

Art Bevis

Connor McDavid - NDH PROUD Feb 3rd, 2018 Posted By: Art Bevis

Wow, what an amazing beginning to, what promises to be, a record breaking career. Connor McDavid was back playing with NDH in 2017 for his third summer season with New Direction Hockey,  His great play and positive attitude, along with his tremendous support of New Direction Hockey, has attracted several other great names that have chosen to come and play some puck with us week after week in Newmarket. Great players such as our very own Josh Leivo and Travis Dermott from the Leafs, first rounder to Philly, Morgan Frost, the Av's Captain, Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan Murphy, Darren Archbald. Phil Giuseppe, Jordan Subban, Malcolm Subban, and James Livingston have chosen NDH to play in summer 2017. We are also very proud to announce that our very own DYLAN SIKURA HAS BEEN NAMED TO CANADA'S 2018 OLYMPIC TEAM. Now we have TWO NHL CAPTAINS and an Olympic Athlete in the league .... what an honour!!  Its great fun watching the caliber of hockey that is played in our PREMIER ELITE division on Wednesday nights. 

We, at NDH, certainly wish great success to all the players that are reaching for the stars in so many hockey cities in North America, and hopefully we will, once again, see all thes tremendous athletes year after year with New Direction Hockey at the Magna Center. Good Luck !!

Hello & Welcome To: Jan 25th, 2017 Posted By: Art Bevis

The New Direction Ice Hockey Program!

We have successfully launched a Brand New Concept for Ice Hockey in the G.T.A. As a team rep, you will become a partner of New Direction Hockey and have an equal say in all major decisions within the Newdirectionhockey family. The end of year banquet is a great example where the food, refreshments and prizing are partially funded by revenue generated from the league.


This League is unique in that it is a business networking opportunity, and not merely "just another league to play in." We are fortunate to have a huge supply of talent and business savvy right on the ice that we play with and against each week. Business planners, corporation managers, marketing directors, lawyers, accounting executives. A wealth of knowledge at our fingertips and we have an opportunity to use this unlimited resource.


Summer hockey 2016 recap Oct 9th, 2016 Posted By: Art Bevis

Summer hockey started mid-May and here we are approaching Christmas already. "Championship Week" was at the end of August and it was outstanding at the Magna Centre. There has been a total of 270 hockey games played this season. Except for a hand ful of players, everyone played with the new direction hockey recreational focus and stayed out of the box. The league is proud that you are a part of it. All divisions were close and came down to the final regular season games to fill in the blanks for all championship games in all divisions. It was amazing the way it rounded out. We had approx 150 people out to the banquet at Sneakers on August 29th and Travis did a great job feeding all the players and, of course, Taylor from Molson Canada was there to make sure that no one went home thirsty.

Again, it has been a great summer and I can't wait to do it all over again in 2016.

Cheers, Art Bevis and Bernie Colvin

Zero Tolerance on Malice Nov 26th, 2013 Posted By: Art Bevis

Don't forget to remind all your players that if they lose their mind on or off the ice, they will lose the priviledge to play hockey in this league. Teams learn very quickly that we mean business.

If you have any members of your team that you think may be an issue early or later in the schedule, tell them to stay home NOW.   They will embarrass you down the road, trust me !!
