Adult Fall Leagues
Players (ages 18+) will register as an individual and the Adult League Committee will form two, possibly three divisions (low skill and high skill and possibly intermediate) and teams as evenly as possible. The first week will be evaluations, with teams formed after that. Most games will be on Sundays. If the number of teams is greater than ten, a once a month game on a Friday or Saturday night will be necessary. Teams will play 12 total games. Fees include jersey, officials, time keepers, and ice time.
Bloomington Youth House/Recreational Leagues
Bloomington Recreational Hockey will run a youth house/ recreational league that will skate for 18 weeks, Oct 3, 2016 - Mar 2, 2017. The week of Thanksgiving and two weeks during the Christmas/New Year holidays will be scheduled weeks off. No experience is required to participate. Each age group will skate once during the week (Monday through Thursday) and once on the weekend (Saturday or Sunday). It is unknown at this time what night any age group will skate. We expect registration to be higher than last year. Until we have the fi nal registration numbers, a schedule can not be finalized. The weekend time slots will be rotated as evenly as possible. A payment will be required at registration. You can make a single payment for the season or make three payments (one at registration, one by 10/3 and the last one by 11/28). The single payment option offers a $28 savings.
