Recreational Hockey League for U15, U18 and U21


The EFHL Recreation Hockey League is intended for players who want to play hockey but not commit to the more involved practice and game schedules of the community hockey program.

Some of the key founding principles of this program are as follows:

  • Focus on fun and participation more so than development
  • Playing with family and friends
  • Less time commitment - 18 games, no practices
  • Minimize travel - playing closer to home as much as possible
  • Lower fees - fees are set by the league with no need for team cash calls
  • More consistent scheduling

When registrations open, players will have a choice of registering with NWZ Hockey for the traditional Community Program or the Recreation League program.

Fees for the U15, U18, and U21 RECREATION HOCKEY LEAGUE divisions are $500.

  • Fees may be paid online starting June 10, 2023.  For the 2023-2024 season, the payment options are:
    • pay the full amount at registration, or
    • two payments (1) at time of registration and (2) Sept 1. No late fee is assessed to Recreation League players.
    • Registration is not deemed complete until payment has been received.


More details on the recreational league can be found on the Hockey Edmonton website at:  Recreation Hockey League .
