Adult Hockey Leagues
We offer one of the most competitive Adult Hockey Leagues in the Chicago area with divisions based on level of play for men and women. We provide professional referees and scorekeepers for every game.
Men's Hockey League
The league offers a 12-game season with flexible scheduling. Teams are split into divisions, based on their level of play. We also offer a recreational division for new and experienced players looking for fun and exercise. The regular season will be followed by a single-elimination playoff tournament; every team is guaranteed at least one spot in the tournament. The season begins with a mandatory captains’ meeting.
Team Registration Fee
- Teams must pay in full or arrange a payment plan before the meeting.
- Teams can use an electronic monthly payment process:
Credit Card Plan
After paying a $1,000 deposit, the captain completes and submits an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) Form. A credit card is charged on the 15th of each month with a scheduled amount.
After paying a $1000 deposit, the captain completes an EFT Form and submits a blank, voided check. The scheduled payment is withdrawn from that account on the 15th of each month.
The following schedule is used for automatic payments:
November 15: $1000 December 15: $1000 January 15: $1000
When the season starts, teams can begin play only after they have paid the $1,000 deposit and handed in a signed EFT Form.
Player Registration Process
All players fill out a Registration Form with the Park District and have their picture taken for an Adult Hockey ID. Those with existing IDs just need to fill out a Registration Form. Once the form is turned in, the existing ID card will become active.
Women’s Mixer League (summer only)
Beginners through advanced players are welcome to join this league. Women register as individuals, attend an evaluation night, and are placed on a team for an 11-game season. We try to ensure that teams are evenly balanced with players and goalies. Contact the Sports Center Office if you would like to be on the committee that chooses teams.
