New Recreational Hockey League for U15, U18 and U21:

We are pleased to announce that due to the energy and commitment of several SWZ members, including Confederation Hockey and SWAT Hockey, there is a new and exciting option for minor and junior hockey players commencing this season.  Hockey Edmonton has announced the EFHL Recreation Hockey League for players who want to play hockey but not commit to more involved practice and game schedules of the community hockey program.

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.

Fees for the U15, U18, and U21 RHL divisions are $450.

See the "Player Registration" page for additional information.
