Who we are...
The Colchester Women's Rec Hockey League was started in 2006 in order to give women who had gone through the Babes on Blades program a chance to play organized games on a regular basis. We have grown from four to six teams (13 players per team) with a 23-25 game season depending on ice availability. We are women aged 19 and beyond (younger players may be permitted but must be agreed upon by the Executive) who enjoy playing recreational hockey in a supportive team atmosphere. We are comprised of beginners (1-2 years experience), intermediates and veterans and welcome new players. The league is for those players who are in need of challenging their skills in formal game situations and should have some basic skills at passing, shooting and carrying the puck. It is our hope that you will develop a greater understanding of positional play through game situations. We play one night per week and use the rinks in Brookfield (Wed. 7&8 p.m.), Debert (Mon. 8:30 p.m.) and at the RECC (TBD).
For those new to the game, there is a Four-on-Four Sunday league, comprised of at least eight teams. They play Sunday afternoon at Deuville's Rink in Salmon River and are currently run by the Municipality of Colchester Rec. Department. If you are a beginner hockey player, looking to develop your skills and want to understand how to play the game, the Four on Four League will offer you the opportunity to learn to play hockey in a game setting. Phone 897-3155 for more information or check out: 4-on-4 Hockey . Typically women new to the game will play a year or two in the Four-on-Four league and then move over to the Rec. League.
The Nova Scotia Women's Hockey League is based out of Halifax and offers more competitive play. It is currently made up of more than 20 teams, split in to A, B and C divisions. If you are interested in joining the league as a player please contact NSWHL
