The Connecticut Hockey League (CHL), is the state’s premier adult hockey league, with thousands of members seamlessly organized into multiple tiers at locations throughout Connecticut. Catering to the beginner hockey player, as well as former NHL players, the CHL has become the hub of Connecticut’s community and has grown exponentially in size since being founded in 2006.
Retaining a very professional feel even in the most basic divisions, it is the only sports organization in Connecticut with over 2500 members offering daily stat tracking, updates, wins and losses, scoring and penalty leaders, and much more available at cthockeyleague.com. Connecticut Hockey League is the largest Amateur Sports League in the state with over 100 amateur hockey teams playing year round.
The CHL operates in the largest rinks and top of the line facilities throughout Connecticut. Even with the league’s success, it continues to value and pride itself on the camaraderie bond its members have on and off the ice.
Due to increased interest, the Connecticut Hockey League is proud to announce the addition of the Competitive Women’s Hockey League (CWHL). The CWHL will be the state’s first premier women’s hockey league, with the same professional feel unique only to the Connecticut Hockey League. The CWHL will strive to provide an environment in which female players both at the intermediary level and beyond can compete at a high level with the ability to further develop skills and game strategy.
The CWHL will begin its first 10 week session in January 2014. All games include three 15 minute periods, two minutes stop time, up to two referees, and full stats recorded for each team and kept on the CHL website at CTHockeyLeague.com. As this is the first season for the CWHL, all games will be played based on interest at CHL arenas.
Prior to the start of the Winter PREMIER session in January, the CWHL is holding a free tryout and scrimmage! Bring teammates and friends, and come check it out! Full equipment is required, and please bring both a dark and a light jersey. For convenience, we will have a registration table for all players who would like to register for the January session.
The purpose of this tryout isn't to weed players out, but to ensure that players are placed accordingly on a team where they will feel comfortable, and all teams are balanced to maximize competition. These two elements help players to learn from those more experienced, guide those less experienced, thus helping the whole league to grow together. It creates a warm "team" feel across the entire league, so players can focus more on having fun!
Players are welcome to come to one or both!

Players can register to teams directly through the website. Go to cthockeyleague.com, click on "How do I register?" under the News section.
