The 2015-2016 GARHL Season has begun with a new format.  The league will play a ten game round robin schedule and then have divisions split in to A and B Divisions.  The top eight teams after the round robin will be placed in A Division and the bottom eight teams will be placed in B Division.  From here there will be a fourteen game in division schedule to determine seeding for the GARHL Playoffs.

We would also like to welcome Huber Window Cleaning and Shootin Blanks to the league as new teams.  The GARHL would like to thank departing teams, Goblins and the Young Guns for taking part in the league.  The Goblins were one of the original franchises in the GARHL and won the inaugural GARHL Championship in 2000-2001.

A couple of teams have also switched names.  The Belugas how become Power Bus Way and Baker St. Station has been renamed Royal Electric.

Good Luck to all teams in 2015-2016 Season!
