The Gardens Ice House is proud to announce the 20th Season for our In-House Women’s Summer League!
Most games will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings afternoons, with the addition of some weekend games. We expect to start games mid-May and end about mid-August. Evaluations give Captains the ability to rate players and see everyone- after the last evaluation, the captains hold a draft. The goal of the Captains is to put together equally balanced teams for each division.
Also, we're in our second season for the High School Division! We need USA Hockey-certified coaches on the benches. Please let us know if you can help. We’d like 2-4 coaches aligned with each team, ideally four teams again, to share the load.
Approximately $175 per goalie and $350 per player depending on how many we end up with on each roster.
Other Stuff: You need to have a current US Hockey registration number: http://www.usahockeyregistration.com
You must be 18 yrs old or older to join us. We are planning for 12 teams in the summer league across three divisions: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
Evaluations: $20 to attend, please pick out the date and skill level that is best for you and contact Emily at: email@example.com to sign up for the summer and an evaluation.
Sunday April 30, 9:30am - 11:00am (Silver/Gold)

Gardens Ice House Women’s Ice Hockey League
Mission Statement and Code of Conduct
Mission: Since inception, our goal has been to provide a safe, fun, and competitive environment for all women playing in the league, from beginner through college level players. The Administration, Captain’s Council, and players are asked to keep the big picture in mind: Do the best we can to ensure each game is a positive experience, so we may continue to have players return each season, and grow the league by encouraging new players to join.
Ice hockey is a competitive sport, but our league is non-check. This is a recreational league. We play for fun and exercise, focusing on safety first, so we need to consistently self-police/look out for one another by taking responsibility for ourselves. Players need to remember good sportsmanship and make split second decisions to protect themselves and opponents.
Dangerous plays may occur that are still within the rules and not something that can be penalized. Captains should encourage players to play to the best of their ability while conducting themselves in a safe and controlled manner. Players should report unacceptable behavior, on and off the ice, to captains or the League Commissioner.
