Adult Hockey Leagues

We offer one of the most competitive Adult Hockey Leagues in the Chicago area with divisions based on level of play for men and women. We provide professional referees and scorekeepers for every game.

Men's Hockey League

The league offers a 14-game season with flexible scheduling. Teams are split into divisions, based on their level of play. We offer a Recreational Division for adults who are new to hockey and experienced players who want to play for fun and exercise. The regular season is followed by a single elimination playoff tournament in late August; every team is guaranteed at least one spot in the tournament. The summer season begins with a mandatory Captains’ Meeting on May 19 at 7pm. Games begin on June 8; there are no games on July 4.

Team Registration Fee

Payment Information

  1. Teams must pay in full or arrange a payment plan before the meeting on May 19.
  2. Teams can use an electronic monthly payment process:

Credit Card Plan
After paying a $1,000 deposit, the captain completes and submits an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) Form. Payments will be charged to your account on the 15th of each month.

Checking Plan 
After paying a $1,000 deposit, the captain completes and signs an EFT Form and submits a blank voided check. Payments will be withdrawn from your account on the 15th of each month.

Player Registration Process
