Recreational Hockey

The majority of NDMHA players play recreational hockey. The NDMHA is a “no body checking” Association for all recreational levels up to and including U21. The emphasis is on fitness, fellowship, sportsmanship and fun. The objectives of the NDMHA recreational league are:

  • To promote a game that fits the needs of its participants
  • To be open to all male and female players
  • To allow players fair and equitable ice time
  • To emphasize the importance of having fun while improving skills
  • To allow enjoyable participation
  • To assist in physical development
  • To create a pleasant social environment

Players in the Recreational Program will be evaluated. Using these evaluations, the players will be drafted on to teams, with our best efforts to create balanced teams.  Please see Policy B03 for further information on the draft process.

NDMHA is a member of the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association, BC Hockey & Hockey Canada. Please review the following links for programming & relevant information.
