NYCGHA Rec League is a great way to get some exercise, help novice players learn the game, and intermediate players to fine tune their skills. Novices will feel comfortable playing in this league because of its low pressure atmosphere and the added benefit of playing with and learning from more experienced players.

Games are played at Chelsea Piers Sky Rink every Sunday at 4:00 PM and 5:30 PM with the exception of certain holidays and other scheduled bye weeks. We typically operate two seasons per year: Spring/Summer (March - August) and Fall/Winter (September - February).

The NYCGHA Rec League differs from the Sky Rink Adult Hockey League in two key ways: 

  • All players are members of the NYCGHA, and must adhere to our Code of Conduct. Members must support a friendly, welcoming environment for all players. We are an LGBTQ+ Community driven organization, and our league is centered around this community and mission. 
  • All teams are evenly assigned novice and intermediate players in order to keep games fun and competitive. Novices will feel comfortable playing in this league because of its low pressure atmosphere and the added benefit of playing with and learning from more experienced players. 

If you are interested, please fill out a Self Evaluation Form. Depending on your hockey experience, we may suggest other leagues or a higher level NYCGHA team that might be a better fit for your skill level. The NYCGHA Rec League Organizing Committee has the right to remove a player from Rec League if they are considered to not meet our eligibility criteria and/or do not comply with the policies of the league.
