OUR MEN'S LEAGUE
Ball Hockey Edmonton's (Men's League÷ started in 1982 with a total of 14 teams playing in one level of play.Over the years, Men's ball hockey has grown and so have the levels of play. In 2011, we had over 150 Men's teams playing in 12 divisions of play. No matter what your skill level may be, there is a place for everyone to play the great game of ball hockey!
All players must be of the legal age of eighteen (18) in order to play in the Men's League. Players may only be registered to play for one team,but a player can play in one division and coach in another.
In the Men's league, we have a total of 12 divisions of play. The league is split up into 4 Tiers plus a Rec. Level, and there are Provincials for all levels of play. Winners at Provincials have a chance to move on to Westerns & Nationals. We try and place teams in the proper skill level. If your team has little or no experience, you would start in the lowest division. But no matter what division you end up in, you have a chance to win a Divisional and Tier championship, and a chance to qualify for Provincials.
-Tier 1: (Division 1 teams)
-Tier 2: (Division 2-3 teams)
-Tier 3: (Division 4-5-6 teams)
-Tier 4: (Division 7-8-9-10 teams)
-Rec. Level: (Division 11-12 teams)
Team and player registration takes place every year during the months of January-February-March. Contact the B.H.E. Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to get team or individual player forms sent to you.
