*New* Recreational League (ERHL)
The Edmonton Recreational Hockey League offers players, (boys & girls as teams are co-ed) a less structured program without practices and only 1 game per week.
Families will now have a choice to register in either the existing community hockey program OR the new recreational hockey program. (note: this does not replace the existing community hockey program; it adds an alternative offering to our members.) Upon registration, players will have a choice of registering with our traditional community program in SWAT OR with the new recreational program.
Registration for the recreational Hockey League (RHL) is for any interested player in the U9 (Novice), U11 (Atom), U13 (Peewee) age categories as of December 31 of the current season. The program is open to all players residing in Edmonton and area that would be eligible to play.
In this Recreational League, players will play 20 games (1 per week) beginning mid-October and ending in March. There will be 1 practice for initial team formation and familiarization. There are no tournaments or further practices; no standings are kept and there are no playoffs.
Please note that under this program, a player does NOT have to live within SWAT’s catchment to play with SWAT. Registration will be done at the District, Operating Area or Interlock Association of your choice for all Associations operating within the Edmonton Federation Hockey League and offering Recreational Hockey.
