Registration for both Divisions of Spring Mixed League is now open!!
2015 DWHL Spring Mixed League
Season begins week of January 19th, 2015.
To register: Logout of the site (you cannot be logged in) and go to registration tab and choose Recreational Mixed League or Competitive Mixed League.
League Details: There will be two mixed divisions this season!
Recreational Mixed League - Novice to Intermediate with Advanced Mentors. Games are on Mondays at 10:15pm at Promenade and Wednesdays at 9:00pm at Apex. The focus of the Recreational League is the skill development of Novice and Intermediate players through a more relaxed, positive and social atmosphere. Each team will get 10 games + Playoffs, 1 half-ice team practice during the first week of the season to help us assess skill levels, and can sign up for three opt-in skill camps spaced evenly throughout the season. This league will have coaches on the bench.
Competitive Mixed League - Intermediate to Advanced. Games are on Mondays at 9:00 at Promenade and Wednesdays at 10:15pm at Apex. Players in the Competitive Division are more experienced players looking for a challenge. Focus is still on skill development and mentoring, but the games will be faster. Each team will get 10 games + Playoffs, 1 half-ice team practice during the first week of the season to help us assess player’s skill levels, and can sign up for three opt-in Drop-In Games spaced evenly throughout the season. Intermediate players can expect to be challenged by the higher level of play, but still able to compete as part of the team. Advanced players will be challenged to be a team leader, mentor for intermediate players and a good opponent.
Fees Early bird registration fees are $265 per skater if paid by December 31st and $275 from January 1st – 9th. All Payments after January 9th will include a late fee of $50. Fees include free subbing within your division - we are limiting the rosters to 13 players each (12 skaters and 1 goalie). All games will have a limit of 13 skaters per bench. In the event that there are not enough registered skaters to field more full teams, then the max number of skaters per team may be increased at the Board's discretion.
• Registration Deadline is January 9, 2015.
• No charge for goalies - first registered, first rostered.
• Game nights and times are subject to change due to availability of ice. Games are currently scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays.

• USAHockey-Certified Referees
• Each Recreational League team will have a dedicated Coach for the season
• Huge Benefit over other adult hockey leagues: Rostered players sub for free within your division on nights your team is not playing! Non-rostered, DWHL members may sub for a $25 drop-in fee. Subbing up into the Competitive Division is allowed and subbing down into the Recreational Division for mentoring purposes will be considered with Board approval.
Payment: Payment for the 2015 Spring Leagues is due by January 9th. You will be notified of your team placement prior to the 1st game, if registration and payment are received on time. All registrations and payments made after the deadline will be subject to a $50 late fee and late registrants will not be guaranteed a roster spot on a team. If your registration and payment is received after the deadline, you will be notified of your team placement upon receipt, assuming there is still space available.
In an effort to keep player costs to a minimum, the DWHL has a no refund policy for league fees after the start of the season.
USA Hockey: If you have not already done so, you must register for the 2014-2015 season with USA Hockey and enter that registration number when you sign up for the Fall Mixed league.
Jerseys: The DWHL is committed to keeping your costs down. As part of this commitment, we provide jerseys for use in the in-house league during the season. To control costs and encourage the return of jerseys, we ask for a jersey deposit. In order to check out a jersey, the DWHL will require a check for $35 as a jersey deposit fee. The check will NOT be cashed and will be shredded if you return your jersey in good shape. If a jersey is not returned, the DWHL will cash the check and retain the funds to cover the cost of replacing the jersey. If you have a DWHL jersey that you purchased in the past, you are welcome to use it for the season and do not have to pay a deposit.
Team and Player Preferences: Team placement is at the sole discretion of the DWHL Board. Note that we will attempt to grant requests for carpool groups to play together, but will only consider groups of two or three players and you must request each other. You are not guaranteed to play with your requests.
Players will be assigned to teams based on their skill ratings. If a player has not yet played with the league, they may be moved within the first two weeks, once a coach has evaluated their skill level.
Subbing Policy: Please review the current sub policy online (on the FAQs tab).
League Mission: We welcome all women hockey players who are committed to the mission of the DWHL. Any player who repeatedly fails to adhere to the mission may be asked to leave a team at the sole discretion of the board.
“To provide an environment in which women can play hockey free from all forms of harassment or discrimination and which encourages fair play, openness and friendship. To provide a competitive and social atmosphere which promotes the growth of leadership, coaching, and skill development.”
We are a league that is dedicated to teaching women hockey skills and developing players. Any player who does not uphold the mission by exhibiting unsportsmanlike behavior will be asked to leave the league without refund of league fees.
