THIS IS HOW WE DO IT...
Dear Players, Coaches, and Parents,
Here we go again!
Welcome to all new players and coaches and welcome back to all of you returning!
First, thank you to all players and coaches who continue to make this League a summertime success. The UHL Team loves the sport as much as you do- the skill, the speed, the tenacity, the friendships.....all on 1/8" blades of steel....
The intention of this League is to keep players in game-ready condition over the summer with some fun added in. This is a NO CHECK LEAGUE which will be strongly enforced. There is no reason to knock someone's block off and no reason for cheap checks. With that being said, there is a STRICT NO FIGHTING rule resulting in expulsion from the League with no refund given.
If you are already part of a team, please download the application, filled it out, have a parent/guardian sign, and give it to your coach. ALL PLAYERS NEED TO BE USA REGISTERED.
If you are a coach and are interested in putting a team in, please send us a message below or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you.
If you are a player who is looking to join a team, please send us a message in the box below or email email@example.com and we will get back to you. We will work with you to get you on a team.

Additional Points of Emphasis:
Flagrant / Violent Penalties will not be tolerated and officials have been instructed to issue, at a minimum, a Game Misconduct for any sort of dirty / cheap shot when observed.
While the game can be physical, there is no room for Violent, Flagrant penalties . . . The purpose of the league is to provide an opportunity for players to stay in shape, develop skills and most importantly have fun and enjoy the game of Ice Hockey as it was meant to be played.
All decisions during game play by the On or Off Ice Officials are final.
