Recreational Hockey League for U15, U18 and U21:

The EFHL Recreation Hockey League is intended for players who want to play hockey but not commit to the more involved practice and game schedules of the community hockey program. Registration fees are TBD. Please note no registrations will be accepted after September 30, 2024.

Some of the key founding principles of this program are as follows:

  • Focus on fun and participation more so than development
  • Playing with family and friends
  • Less time commitment - 18 games, no practices
  • Minimize travel – playing closer to home as much as possible
  • Lower fees – fees are set by the league with no need for team cash calls
  • More consistent scheduling
  • When registrations open, players will have a choice of registering with SWZ Hockey for the traditional community program or the new recreational program.

See the "Player Registration" page for additional information.
