Adult Hockey League
The Sherwood Ice Arena Adult Hockey League is dedicated to providing players of all skill levels a safe place to play where the focus is on fun and sportsmanship with equal playing time for all players. The SIA hockey league stresses equal play at all levels of competition. Teams are continually scouted throughout the season. Based on management’s assessment, your team will be matched up with other teams of equal ability to ensure a fun and challenging experience. All games are played at the Sherwood Ice Arena throughout the week, depending on the division.
The Sherwood Ice Arena Adult Hockey League offers a Fall league starting in September, a Spring League starting in January, and a Summer League starting in June. Currently the SIAHL has more than 800 players participating in over 57 teams in 9 divisions and our proud members of USA Hockey. The Fall and Spring seasons will consist of 15 regular season games. Following the regular season, all teams will participate in a playoff tournament to determine division champions, gaining everyone a 16th guaranteed game. Schedule averages one game per week. Team sign ups begin in July for the Fall season, December for the Spring season, and April/May for the Summer season. Space is limited, so enroll early. Registration is on a first come first serve basis. Players entering league after the first game will be charged a pro-rated registration fee of $30.00 per remaining game fee. No refunds. Must be 18 years or older during the season to play. Schedules, scores, and standings are updated weekly here, on Sportability.
Looking For A Team?
Individuals without teams who are looking to play should register as an individual and contact Sean Taylor, SIA Hockey Director, and arrange an evaluation. Sean’s phone number is 503-625-5757 ext. 202. An evaluation consists of the player participating in our Thursday night (6:25pm) Adult Hockey Skills class (cost is $17), with a SIA hockey evaluator observing their play and recommending the appropriate division. The player will then be placed on a team that has open slots on their roster. This process helps us ensure skill-level parity throughout the divisions, and that the individual has the most fun playing in a division that is appropriate for their abilities. If enough individuals register to create a team (14), the arena will make a team. Players will then be responsible to purchase jerseys. (Northwest Skate Authority can help you if you need jerseys. Call them at 503-925-8097).
Adult Hockey League Divisions
The idea behind having nine divisions is to have more parity amongst the teams, as well as providing a place for players of all skill levels to play. To ensure this happens, it may be necessary for some players to be relocated once the season starts to make sure they are in the proper division. Players will be relied upon to honestly represent their own skill level to make sure they end up in the correct division. Days & times are subject to change at league’s discretion.
We will have a 15 game season for all divisions (10 for the summer) plus 1 playoff game is guaranteed. Team Reps skate a discounted rate when they provide the rink with a full roster (Full roster = 14 paid players + Goalie).
