IBHL League Update

2020 has been an interesting year for everyone. We have all had to navigate a great deal of uncertainty with COVID-19 and abiding by the fluid AHS guidelines provided to us as citizens and businesses.

AHS Phase 2 guidelines stipulates a 50 player cohort restriction which offers challenges in providing league play. We opted to wait until the possibility of Phase 3 beginning with the success of Phase 2, however, it looks like this may not happen any time soon.

Even though the situation is not ideal, we will plan to restart IBHL in January 2021.  We are hoping to have Phase 2 restrictions lifted by then, but will operate under those restrictions if required. Obviously, league format and teams will look slightly different in January with the new restrictions, but we will still aim to provide a safe and fun place for us to all play.

Tuesday’s, Thursday’s and Sunday’s will still be offered at VSC with limited spaces available. Details are still to be determined and we will be working on them in the next few months ahead of November registration. Get a head start and talk with your teams. We know you are all anxious to play!

We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during these uncertain and unprecedented times. As a league, our main priority is offering a safe place for our players to play. We believe with the right preparations and restrictions, we will be able to do this - perhaps not in the same ways as before, but giving an option for players to play nonetheless. We know you have all missed hockey and we have missed offering it.

Again, thank you all for your patience in allowing situations to play out. We are very excited to provide teams the opportunity to return and play in January!

Any questions, please contact us at

Be safe and take care of yourselves and each other.

IBHL Subbing Guidelines

Team captains are responsible for finding their own subs. However, the IBHL will only allow subs who have signed the sub registration form and waiver to play. This will be monitored and strictly enforced at every single game by IBHL referees.

The IBHL endorses fair play and sportsmanship within this league. As a result, IBHL:

- encourages teams within the league to help each other and communicate through the IBHL forum thread under "Subs Needed" should they know they are in need of a sub; and

- enforces teams who have sub players that they can only participate in playoff games if they have properly subbed for your team at least twice during the regular season

Thank you - IBHL
