Yes, USA hockey membership is a fee separate from the Provo Peaks Ice Arena’s registration fee and must be obtained before you can begin participation in our league. As a sanctioned USA hockey affiliation, we require you to be a member of USA Hockey for participation in our league. You will need to provide proof of this, on or before the first game of the season.
When is it too late to join the league?
There is a policy and procedures guide that is online that explains when team roster freeze dates are. If it is past that time then you will not be allowed on any team, regardless if they have room on the team for you or not. If it is prior to the freeze date, then you can contact managers about joining a team.
What league should I be in?
A Division (Advanced) – designed to be the advanced division of play. This will include players who may have once played at a high level (former pros, college and junior players, college club, midgets, and travel, etc.), and have mastered the speed and skill of the game, and feel confident playing at this level.
B Division (Intermediate) – designed to be the intermediate division of play. This will include players who may have once played at an intermediate skill level (high school, youth league, some travel [bantam and below]), and feel confident with the speed and skill required to play the game at this level.
C Division (Rookie) – designed more for the beginning level player (5 years or less playing experience) or those players who have not played the game for a while and are looking to get back into the competitive playing experience. Generally, these players have not played on a travel team, at the college level, at the junior/midget level, or any professional hockey in the past.
How do I find a team manager?
Team managers are players within our league and oftentimes you can make these connections at drop in’s. Drop in players can introduce you to their team mangers. You can also contact the League Coordinator, Foster Watabe by email and he can provide you with contacts of people who have managed teams in the past who are possibly coming back for the current season. The league coordinator can also help fill teams or know of teams who might need extra players.
There are two basic ways to sign up for the league.
Sign up as a team. The most common way to sign up is under a team manager. The team manager is responsible for collecting payment from the players on the team and filling a roster with players. Pay collection, the division of player fees, and matching jerseys are the responsibility of the team manager.
You can sign up as an individual. If we have 12 or more individuals sign up in any one division, then we create a team of individuals. If there are less than 12 players than we refund you the money paid and you will have to find room on an existing team. The individual team is managed by the league coordinator, and team jerseys are provided by the Peaks Ice Arena.
