Some exciting changes coming next season for the year 2019-2020! We’re going to get on board with USA Hockey’s Adult League Rating System*. As we get ready to grow into our full size-rink this will allow our league to grow with the expansion and be more comparable with USA Hockey Guidelines. Our formal league names were as follows : C, B Minor, B Major, and A . For the 2019-2020 Season these Leagues perspective will be called:  Novice, Bronze, Silver,  and Gold. Below are guidelines provided to help determine the divisions in the league:

Gold League – Populated by advanced, experienced, competitive skaters. Usually players who have played hockey growing up, and continued on to higher levels of College or beyond.

Silver League – Populated by experienced and competitive players. Those who have a high level of basic hockey skills. He/ She has a very high understanding of team play and  where they should be personal on the ice. Forward and backward skating is strong with good maneuverability and transition. They may have played high school varsity or adult league for quite some years.

Bronze 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.

Novice League – Populated by beginner 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 fundamentals, or game Function of the league is to recruit new players into the league and develop them for the Bronze League. Ice time consists of both scheduled games and practice sessions.

Novice League Practice sessions will involve skills and training, but some will be used for Open Hockey. Novice League Practice – Skills and Training: Bronze players may attend C League Practice skills and training sessions by paying a sub fee. Please email Novice League contacts so we can gauge numbers and inform you if we have reached our maximum for that session. Novice League Practice – Open Hockey: A signup roster will be available for the Open Hockey times and initially only open to Novice League players. When they are not filled the day before the game, Bronze 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 attend a rate skate on March 7th 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 add to their rosters at the discretion of the league director. Individual players…Please mail, email or drop off your registrations at the ice rink. I will have 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: adultleague@palouseicerink.com
