Welcome to the Denver Women's Hockey League
To provide an environment in which women can play hockey free from all forms of harassment or discrimination and which encourages fair play, openness and friendship.
To provide a competitive and social atmosphere which promotes the growth of leadership, coaching, and skill development.
Dates: June - September
Cost: $285 regular. $265 if you sign-up by May 26. Free for goalies.
Location and Game Times:
Games are expected to be on Thursday nights (8:00 - 9:30 pm starts) at Apex and Sunday afternoons (12:00 - 4:00 pm starts) at Promenade.
We are looking into the possibility of scheduling some games at Sports Stable or southern rinks depending on the number of registrations and available ice times.
Divisions: Depending on the final registration numbers, we will divide the summer league into three levels (Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced) or two levels (Recreational and Competitive).
Guaranteed Number of Games:
Advanced Level: 10 games plus playoffs (12 games total guaranteed)
For Novice/Recreational Level: 8 games, 2 practices, plus playoffs (12 ice touches guaranteed)
Teams: We will be rostering teams this summer to make sure we have enough players to fill all the teams and have balanced rosters. However, we are offering the option to note who you would like to play with and will do our best to accommodate any and all requests.
Refs and Coaches: We will have two refs and a scorekeeper at all games; plus coaches for all novice/recreational games.
USA Hockey: As always, you must be USA Hockey registered (2020-2021 or 2021-2022 Registration is valid).
COVID-19 Precautions: We take seriously any concerns regarding COVID-19 and recognize that while things are easing, we are still in a pandemic. We will continue to follow state, local, and facility health code guidelines and regulations. We reserve the right to make changes to the season should the situation change. There is an option in the registration to note if you are vaccinated or not. This is not a required disclosure. We will use this information to track the overall number of members that are vaccinated in hopes of helping everyone feel comfortable and safe to return to play.
