Adult Hockey Leagues

**COVID-19/Coronavirus Update: Our new Adult Hockey League season will be starting on July 27th! To register your team click HERE.

Our Adult Hockey League is the new premier adult hockey league in the St. Louis metro area. All leagues will be governed by USA Hockey. We offer divisions based on ability levels and follow USA Hockey's classifications. The Centene Community Ice Center reserves the right to realign as needed. 

For more information regarding our leagues or looking to join a team, please contact Brandon Schultz

Schedule:

We strive to provide consistency for the adult league hockey player. Based on feedback from you, the player, we found that playing on the same night of the week at the same facility allows for a better work/business, hockey, social, and hockey balance. With the 314 Social Restaurant and Bar on-site, we offer the complete Adult Hockey League experience.

Top Tier League (Thursdays):

Team is comprised primarily of advanced level players who may have NCAA Division III, Junior A, B, C, Non-Varsity College (ACHA), Midget major, Prep or Varsity High School playing experience. Teams may be comparable to traditional "A” level adult house league teams. **Teams are only allowed 2 players with professional (any level, including Europe) or NCAA Division I experience**

Bronze League (Sundays or Mondays):

These teams are comprised primarily of players with novice to intermediate hockey skills. A few of these players may have high school playing experience, but are several years removed from those levels. Most players have some youth organized playing experience up to bantam house. Some may also have little or no youth playing experience, but several years as an adult player in organized leagues. These teams would be comparable to traditional high “D” or “C” level adult house recreational teams. **Players with any junior hockey experience or above will not be permitted to play Bronze or below**

Intermediate League (Sundays or Tuesdays):

These teams are comprised of players with intermediate hockey skills. Several players may have experience at the lower ACHA levels, prep or varsity high school, or lower midget or junior levels. Some players may also have limited organized youth playing experience, but have several years of playing experience as a recreational adult player. These teams would be comparable to a traditional high “C” level adult house recreational team. **Players with any NCAA Division 1, 3 or ACHA Division 1 hockey experience or above will not be permitted to play intermediate or below.**

40 & Older League (Fridays):

Predominantly Bronze level players with the addition of a 40 & Older age requirement. Each team may have a couple intermediate level players on their team as long as there is parity in the league. This division is intended for individuals looking for a good paced game in a relatively relaxed game atmosphere. 

Novice (Sundays):

Team is comprised of players with novice hockey skills. Although some players may have 5+ years of playing experience (either as an adult or a youth), this experience is not to have exceeded the adult novice, or beginner youth levels. These teams may be comparable to traditional low “C” or “D” level adult house league teams. **Players with any high school experience or above will not be permitted to play Novice**

Women’s Adult Hockey Academy (WAHA): 

A Wednesday evening dedicated to women’s adult hockey! Our Women's Adult Hockey Academy offers women the opportunity to hit the ice to sharpen their skills or join in on a pick up game of hockey with our goal to create a Women's Only Hockey League. Skill clinics are available for women of all levels and experience. 

Women-Wine League (Wednesdays):

Team is comprised primarily of recreational level players. Teams are allowed to have a few upper level players on their roster as long as each team is balanced. The idea is the upper level players will help teach the game to the novice level players. 


Women-Beginner Skills and Games (Wednesdays):

Team is entirely comprised of entry level adult players. Players will receive on-ice instruction by certified USA Hockey coaches that will help teach them the game of hockey. Sessions will include proper skating mechanics as well as puck handling, passing and shooting techniques. Although a small number of players may have 5+ years of beginner adult experience, the majority of the team consists of adult players with 1-5 years of entry level playing experience. The goal is to graduate onto our Bronze and Top Tier divisions. This division is not subject to the team fee. Individual fees will be offered.
