|“B Minor” (B-) League||Populated by lower to middle intermediate players that know the rules, can stop rather well, but may be less experienced adult recreational player. The player has limited understanding of where they should be on the ice, but understands basic game concepts. Forward and Backward skating may be somewhat strong but maneuverability and transitions still need work. This division fosters skill development and collegiality. Rosters are built deliberately for balance across the league, with the goal to create learning opportunities for all.|
|Emerald (C) League||Populated by beginner or novice skaters who may be new to the game and learning the rules. Also supporting experienced members of this league may have skated for 2 to 3 years but are still working on skating, stick handling or fundamentals. Game function of the league is to recruit new players into the league and develop them for the next League. Ice time consists of both scheduled games and practice sessions.|
Emerald League practice sessions will involve skills and training, but some will be used for Open Hockey. Emerald League Practice – Skills and Training: B- players may attend these League Practice sessions by paying a sub fee. Please email the Emerald League contacts, so we can gauge numbers and inform you if we have reached our maximum for that session. Emerald League Practice – Open Hockey: A signup roster will be available for the Open Hockey times and initially only open to Emerald League players. When they are not filled the day before the game, B- players will be able to sign up. Click here to sign up for practices!
*NOTE: All Adult league games are non-checking and follow USA Hockey guideline and rules if not otherwise specified. We want players to work hard and realize collisions happen, but try your best to be safe, avoid reckless behavior and stay in-control of your play.
How to build your team or join a team
One may sign-up as a team or as an individual. Team captains will work with other team captains, the Palouse Adult League Committee and Rink Manager to ensure a level of equality between teams. If a team appears to be over experienced and not comparable to other teams in the league they will be asked to resubmit an appropriate roster. The goal is to be able to play with those you wish, but also keep fairness, and appropriate competitiveness fun. Captains please mix up your roster and recruit players that will equal out as an average team in your division.
Players signing up as in individual are encourage to try to find an appropriate team first. They may request a “skate rate” to be evaluated and to allow captains to recruit them. “Free agent players” may reach out to specific captains to find a team. If there are no teams with openings, than a misfit team of “free agents” will be created. If there is not enough space available to add an additional team in the league or on a team. The free agent players will be placed on a waiting list until a spot becomes available. Teams who do not pay as a team will be subject to having additional players added to their rosters at the discretion of the league committee. Individual players, please mail, email or drop off your registrations at the ice rink. There is a box by the office marked “Adult Hockey”.
Below is a list of all team contacts. These contacts will be signing up as teams. Please contact the team directly. Please contact the league liaison with questions or concerns. After contacting your league liaison you may reach out to the league Staff by emailing: email@example.com

Sub policy –
Note on sub courtesy, ethics and sportsmanship – To develop our leagues and players, it is a courtesy to try to find subs from the lower levels to build up our players from lower levels and get them experience in the higher league. This encourages fair play as well to try to litigate advantage of getting an experienced sub. Please try to ask a variety of players to sub. Usually only a few of the regulars get asked, lets strive to be inclusive and fair.
