We are a beginner friendly, small, non-checking, recreational hockey league for players of all skill levels, 18 years and older, male and female. It doesn’t matter if you are new to hockey or a seasoned vet we can find a place for you to hit the ice. Currently, the NAHL offers Beginner/D-level ("D-League") and C level ("C-League") hockey. C-League is open to players with higher skill levels, where D-League is reserved for those players who are beginners or D-level in skill. Higher skilled "Mentors" are allowed in D-League but must play under the restrictions outlined in the handbook below. A player's skill level is currently determined simply by how he/she compares to the rest of the league. Any player whose skill falls in the lower half is considered "D". Any Player in the upper half is considered "C". All NAHL games are played at the Lou & Gibb Reece Ice Arena in Newark, Ohio. Games are played on Mondays and Wednesday nights after 9 PM. On rare occasions, some games may also be scheduled on other evenings. Currently, the "home night" for D-League is Monday and the "home night" for C-League is Wednesday.
Want to start playing? It is easy!
The first step is to get skating. Watch the www.newarkicearena.com schedule for "adult drop-ins" or open skating times. Adult drop-ins are open times for players to play informal games. When you think you are ready for team play watch for registration to open on this website. Fall session registration generally opens around mid-September, winter session around the 1st of January. The NAHL is a USA Hockey sanctioned league, which means: All NAHL players are required to register with USA Hockey and are not allowed to play until valid proof of registration is presented to the league. Yearly USA Hockey dues are currently $50 for a season (September 1 to August 31 the following year). USA Hockey membership benefits include accident insurance for covered medical expenses and a monthly magazine. Registration can be easily obtained with a credit card by visiting the website: www.usahockeyregistration,.com. It takes only a few minutes to complete. If you are interested in signing up mid-season or have any other question(s) please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see on the ice!
