Hello and welcome to the official website of Tucson Adult Hockey League
Registration is now open!!
In 2007, the only public ice rink in Tucson closed. At that time Tucson Adult Hockey League, LLC was founded by Danny Plattner, Pat McDonagh and Robert Nissenbaum.
The mission of Tucson Adult Hockey League, LLC is to provide an adult ice hockey league in Tucson. As part of our mission, we are committed to providing players a safe, fun and competitive place to play with a focus on sportsmanship.
Going forward, we will have 3 divisions; Tier 1, Tier 2 & Tier 3. Our players range in age, ability, and experience. We do our best to make sure the teams are even and competitive.
The Tucson Adult Hockey League is a no-check league. League play is subject to USA Hockey rules and regulations. There is an additional rule that if a player receives 3 penalties in a single game, the player is ejected and not allowed to play the remainder of the game.
The only option for ice hockey in Tucson is the Tucson Convention Center Arena. Due to their scheduling of large events, we typically do not have our league schedule in advance. We update our website regularly with the upcoming game schedule. Our season runs from late September thru January.
Periods are 20 minutes running time. The final minute of the third period will be stop time if the score is within 2 goals. In the event of a tie at the end of regulation, there will be a 3 player shoot-out. Playoffs will have a separate set of overtime rules.
