24 Winter 40+ Champions

2024-25 Season

Two Divisions
30 & Older * 40 & Older * 

This league promotes friendly yet competitive hockey games and very few penalties. You must be the minimum age as of the first day of a session to play.

The 30+ and the 40+ league consists of eight teams with a maximum of 15 skaters and one goalie per team. A total of 15 games are possible: 12 games plus all teams make the playoffs. The schedule is designed so players may play in more than one league as leagues do not play on the same evenings.

Games are 3 twenty-minute running time periods with a stop clock during the last two minutes of the third period if a game is within two goals. Regular-season games ending in a tie feature a five-minute sudden death overtime. Winners earn two points, and teams losing in overtime earn one point. The league champions receive championship t-shirts for each player.

Player Rating

We ask that all players give themselves a rating when they join the league, Player ratings will be adjusted accordingly before the next season's draft.

Player Rating Definitions:

Lvl 1

Players / Goalies at this level are becoming more comfortable on their skates but still have a hard time with skating both forward and backwards. They've acquired some basic skills to get up and down the ice but still struggle with carrying the puck, making passes and taking shots. Players in this group would also include those who are not natural athletes and may take more time to develop their skills. The level of physicality in this game should be nil although players should understand that accidental collisions will occur because players haven't mastered controlled skating. Skating - Stick handling - Passing - Shooting skills are all in the 1 to 2 out of 10 range.

Lvl 1.5
