The UVHL is an elite 'A' level adult hockey league based out of the Union Arena in Woodstock, VT from mid-October to early March (21 games), and out of the Campion Rink in Lebanon, NH from early March until mid-April (5 games). The 2016-2017 season will run from October 18th, 2016 through February 14th, 2017. There will be NO game played on December 22nd due to the holidays, but we DO play on December 29th! Players should have no less than high school hockey experience, or equivalent, to compete in the UVHL. Games are on Tuesday nights at 6:30, 7:55 and 9:20 PM. We run a 3-minute warm-up, and three 15-minute stop time periods. There is a shootout if games are tied at the end of regulation. The league is body contact but NON-CHECKING, and we currently have 6 established teams, but are still looking for about 5-6 quality players to add to our existing rosters for the 2016-2017 season.
The UVHL is an official USA Hockey league, and all players must be current USA Hockey members to step on the ice. We have 2 USA Hockey certified refs each game, a cool website, stats (G, A, PIM's), trash talk, polls, and weekly game write-ups, plus quality hockey!
MISSION STATEMENT: The UVHL is dedicated to develop and uphold the highest level of adult league hockey and sportsmanship in Vermont. Our passion is hockey, and our quest is to become Vermont's Premier Adult Hockey League.
