|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 League Management.|
|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 League Management 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, C2, and D League captains. League Management reserves the right to assign undrafted players to teams.|

CHOP provides referees for adult and youth hockey in the Charlotte area, and the organization is independent of the Pineville Ice House. If you have complaints or comments regarding the officials, please complete the Officials Feedback Form below.
REGISTRATION: All players must register online (recommended) or at the rink before their first game. Players must register with the rink even if their captain is making a team payment. Check season information above for registration and payment dates and deadlines.
MINIMUM TEAM SIZE: If a team does not have at least 11 fully paid players or has not paid a team fee, League Management reserves the right to assign players to teams, merge teams or reject teams altogether.
CAPTAINS MEETING: A meeting for team captains is held once a year before the fall season on the same night as the League Draft. Each team must send its captain or a team representative. The meeting is imperative for communicating League, USA Hockey or officiating developments.
USA HOCKEY REGISTRATION: A USA Hockey registration must be current and on file at the time of registration. All USA Hockey registrations expire on August 31st of each year. Players can register and pay at the following link: Register For USA Hockey. All fees go directly to USA Hockey and provide players with supplemental insurance in the event that they are injured while playing a sanctioned League game. Registration also provides USA Hockey membership benefits which can be reviewed at their website.
ROSTERS & JERSEYS: Team rosters must be submitted by the roster deadline listed near the top of this page. No player additions are permitted after game five. All rosters are subject to approval by League Management, who reserves the right to change rosters at any time due to skill, injury, relocation or other relevant considerations. All players must be on the team roster, and no substitutions or walk-ons are permitted. Goalie substitutions are permitted with League Management approval. To play in the Playoffs, a player must play at least four regular season games. All players must have a jersey with a number on it that is the same base color as the rest of the team. League Management must approve all jerseys.
MISSED GAMES: There are no refunds or credits issued for games missed due to personal conflicts or injuries.
