Hockey Leagues

Adult hockey programs are offered to beginners through advanced hockey players looking for a recreational experience.  Leagues are held on both the small ice for a pond hockey style of play and main sheet of ice for full 5 on 5 play.  League divisions are split by ability and skill levels, and dependent on enrollment for each league.  Drop-in sessions are also offered for individuals looking for practice or a recreational pick-up game.  Full equipment including a helmet with full shield or cage is required for all hockey programs and activities at the Slater Family Ice Arena.

Adult co-ed leagues are offered three times a year for those 18 and older.  All leagues are non-checking and slap shots are not permitted. Players can sign up individually or as a team. Strict adherence to USA Hockey rules is expected by all players and spectators.  Ice Arena staff endorses a "Zero Tolerance" policy for aggression and violence among players and spectators in the leagues!  Full equipment including a helmet with full shield or cage is required for all hockey programs and activities at the Slater Family Ice Arena.
