REGULAR SEASON AND PLAYOFFS

  • Season Length - Teams play 11 to 14 weekly regular season games, one guaranteed playoff game and a championship game or second playoff consolation game.  The number of regular season games may vary due to the start and end dates of the that particular season, holidays, weather cancellations, rink maintenance or other scheduling irregularities.
  • Playoff Eligibility - Players must play at least five regular season games to be eligible for the playoff and championship games.

CANCELED OR RESCHEDULED GAMES

  • Cancellations Due To Severe Weather - In the event of weather emergencies as evident by media forecasts, school closings and/or decrees from government or law enforcement officials, the League may cancel a game or games without providing a makeup date.  In the event of such a cancellation, the game will be recorded as a tie with each team receiving one point.
  • Rescheduled Games - In the event of unexpected ice or other rink maintenance issues, the League will reschedule a game or games to a later makeup date which may vary from regular game days and times for that League level.  If the makeup game does not occur before the end of the regular season, then each team will receive one point for the regular season, and the game will be treated as a consolation game when played.​

NEW TEAMS, NEW PLAYERS & THE PLAYER DRAFT
New TeamsWhile 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 League Management.
New PlayersNew 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 League Management to discuss upcoming seasons and placement on a team.
Player DraftThe 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, C2, and D League captains.  League Management reserves the right to assign undrafted players to teams.

  • The Management of the Pineville Ice House may - at our sole discretion - suspend a player for a game, games, a season, indefinitely or permanently if we feel that the player poses an extraordinary threat of injury to other players or officials or if the player’s conduct is excessively disruptive to league play.
