The Federal Hockey League (FHL) is our Tier II league and is a competitive 40+ league with players of varied backgrounds.  The FHL is designed for older players, recreational players and those newer to the game.   Registration now open click here


You must be 40 years of age by the start of the current season.  Underage exceptions are made on a case by case basis.  Those under 40 years of age may register as normal and your application will be considered by the league underage selection committee.  If you are approved you will automatically go into the draft.  If you are not approved you will be notified before the draft with options of playing in the IHL.  Those that applied for IHL and were not selected are automatically placed in the FHL draft regardless of age.  

Season Length

This will be a 12 game season plus playoff schedule.

Players new to the league must skate in one of the evaluations.  The evaluation skates are just a pick up game but the FHL league GM's are present and will evaluate each new player and assign a ranking to be used at our draft.  This ensures that we have the correct player profile for each player in the draft. 

  • $15.00 per skate. Payable at the door
  • All players must present their 2020-21 USA Hockey insurance to be allowed on the ice.
  • Goaltenders are scheduled for these skates and must contact Jerry Fronek before attending.
