For example, a player may be rostered on C1 and C2 teams but could not be rostered on B2 and C2 teams. The League may limit the number of higher level players allowed on a lower level team (e.g. C1 players on C2 teams). Some players may be prohibited from playing at more than one level (e.g. a high level C1 player may not be permitted on a C2 team).

|NEW TEAMS, NEW PLAYERS & THE PLAYER DRAFT|
|New Teams||While teams and rosters generally carry forward from season to season, teams sometimes drop out or fold, and new teams are added. New teams are created through the Player Draft or by captains forming new teams. If you are interested in creating a team or adding an existing team to a League, please contact the Hockey Director.|
|New Players||New players may join a league at the start of each season by attending the League Draft or by joining an existing team. Most existing teams are looking to add one or several players at the start of each season. If you have never or have not recently played in our Adult League, it's a good idea to Join Our Mailing List to get email updates for the upcoming season. You may also contact the Hockey Director to discuss upcoming seasons and placement on a team.|
|Player Draft||The Player Draft is mandatory for all players with no league history at the Ice House. Full gear is required. B1 league captains draft first, followed by B2, C1 and C2 captains. D League players are assigned to teams by the Hockey Director. The Hockey Director reserves the right to assign undrafted players to teams.|
