Welcome to the
Novice Adult Coed Hockey League (NACHL)

Week of 5/20/2023

Session 5 --> Session 6

   Usually when you go ta Admirals game, "It's all your fault" is the chirp/ taunt thrown at the opposing goalie when they let in a goal. But in this case, it's a good thing, and a bit of a challenge. BECAUSE . . . It's all your fault that we have 6 teams for Session 5! WOW - just WOW!! So now the "challenge" is can you do it again, NACHLers*?

   Registration opened to current players this past weekend. Those players who have played in a previous session will be sent a link to register next week (May 28). Early in June those who have not played but are on the Contact List or have completed the Step 2 (Registration to play in the NACHL) will be sent the link to play in Session 6.

   If you are interested in playing, read the rules and guidelines, and if this is the league for you, then start with the EoI (found on the Sign-up Page). For Session 6, you will need to have a 2023-2024 USA Hockey membership.

e-mail addresses​

   UHG and the NACHL has been using gmail e-mail addresses; with the creation of this website we now have e-mail addresses using this domain. I am working to have e-mails that are forwarded to the gmail addresses to the new e-mail addresses. If you have any questions, the new e-mail address for the league is

   * So waht is a "NACHLer", and how do you saw it? A NACHLer is someone who playes (or has played) in the NACHL. Once a NACHLer - Always a NACHLer!! I say it "NACK-ler", others say it "NATCH-ler", some say "nack-ULL-urs", and the French probably say something like "nash-el-eers . . . UHN". Bottom line - you are a hockey player, how you say it is not nearly as important as what you are doing. Thank you for coming, bringing your friends, having fun and building a great community.

The Goals of the NACHL

The goals of the Novice Adult Coed Hockey League (NACHL) are to:

- provide new players the opportunity to learn and play ice hockey against players of similar abilities

- give players the opportunity to build their skills and knowledge so they can graduate and go on to play ice hockey in an adult/ “beer” league.

- promote the ideals of good sporting behavior while enjoying the company of other adults.



There will be three weeks of camps to give you an opportunity to build some basics skills and learn some basic concepts.

Team practice

You will have one session to meet your teammates, and then run drills or scrimmage against another team.


There will be six games between the four (maybe more) teams. The last game will be between your first opponent, so you can how much everyone has improved. (2023-05-23)

Learn to play - Play to learn -- HAVE FUN!!

The NACHL Program

The Process

1) Expression of Interest (EoI)

   If you are interested in learning how to and playing ice hockey.

   Before applying, please go to the Guidelines & Rules page and read the league rules.

   If this is the league for you, go to the Signing-up page.

2) Register as a Player with USA Hockey

   You will need to register as a Player with USA Hockey. This will provide you with an insurance policy for any incidence that occurs on the ice. To register click on this link to go to USA Hockey:

   USA Hockey memberships run from April 1 until August 31 of the next year (For example, April 1, 2022 to August 31, 2023.)

3) Notification & Registration

   Links to "Step 2" will be sent out to those individuals who complete the EoI and are eligible.

   Step 2 is the first registration and is a prospective players' registration to play in the NACHL and may be completed at any time, just like the EoI.

   Step 3, the second registration, is for a specific session. For example is "Step 3 for Session 4". This link is sent out to all people who have completed Step 2 and are deemed to be at the appropriate skill level for the NACHL.

   Step 2 and Step 3 are managed through Google Forms. (If anyone has a better platform, please let us know.) Once you are added to the mailing list for a step, there is no easy way for us to remove you from the list. However, there will always be an option for you to ask to:

  1. be moved to the contact list for future sessions or

  2. be removed from the list and not be contacted in the future. (If you select this option but later want to particpate in the league, just start back at the EoI.)

   If someone completes Step 2 before completing the EoI or completes Step 3 before completing Step 2 or the EoI, your registration will be denied and you will be informed that you need to complete the prior step(s). This has happened when a current registrant or player has sent their link to a friend.

   Rosters will have the same number novice skaters, 1 novice goalie and 1 team coordinator.

. . . the next session(s)

   The dates for the future sessions will be posted on the Schedules page once they are confirmed.
   All new/ prospective players need to complete the EoI. Once the EoI is completed, players will be sent the link to complete Step 2 which can be completed at any time.

   Messages will be posted the NACHL Facebook page to alert players when the registration will be open. 

  • At the start of the sixth week of the current session, current players will be sent a link to either 1) register their interest to play or 2) register for the next session.

  • At the start of the seventh week of the current session, players who have patticipated in previous sessions who are on the contact list will be sent the link to register.

  • By the start of the eighth week, new players who have completed Step 2 will be sent the link to resigter for the next session.   will follow the same pattern - Expression of interest, Notification & Registration, 10 weeks of hockey.

   As these e-mails are sent out in bulk, they may end up in your SPAM or Junk folders or not allowed to be received due to your filter settings. Therefore, if you see the post on the Facebook page or expect that you should have received the registration link but you do not see it in your Inbox, please check these folders and if you do not see the e-mail, please contact the commissioner via e-mail or PM on Facebook.
