Ancaster Men’s Hockey League

The Ancaster Men’s Hockey League is for players who want to play clean, competitive hockey with other guys who also have to go to work the next day.

Two Divisions
The 12 team league has two divisions, a Junior League with 6 teams and a Senior League with 6 teams. The Senior league is open to players who are 40 years of age or older. While there is no age restriction for the “Junior” league, most of the players are close to 40 or older.

Ratings
Each team has 10 players who are rated from 1 to 10 by skill. That means lots of ice-time for everyone and league parity since all teams have equally rated players.

The Spare List
If a player can’t make a game, the team rep calls a player with an equivalent rating from the Spare List to replace him. Usually the best way to get into the league is to get on the Spare List first for a year or two.
