Happy Sunday!

   The number of interested players continues to grow - thank you for spreading the word about the league.

   To help promote the league a Facebook page was created on Friday (Jan 21). There is a link to the page in the upper right hand corner. Please invite people to view and join as they wish. That page will be used to promote the league and post time sensitive information. This site will remain the primary source for information about the NACHL.

   Older Updates will be moved to the Update Archive page, probably on a weekly basis.

Happy Sunday! Yet again!!

   If you completed the Expression of Interest survey by February 19th, you were sent a link to register for the league over the weekend. If you completed the EoI after February 19th, your link will be sent out shortly.

   *** If you do not complete the EoI, you will not be sent a registration link. This is not negotiable, so please do not ask me to send you the registration link. Anyone who registers without completing the EoI will have their registration deleted.

   Information about how you can pay will be sent out this week, probably on Wednesday. If you chose to use a service that charges a service fee (like PayPal and credit cards do), then you will be asked to cover that service fee. I am currently trying to determine as many fee free methods as I can to keep the costs down.

   With regards to gear, once you have paid your registration fee you will be eligible to receive a discount at The Hockey Haven Superstore in Brookfield (see the Partners page for information about the store). I am working to collect some used gear. I will provide more information about the gear as it is collected.

Happy 1-month to go!!

   We are expanding to allow more players.

   This decision was not made lightly. I understand that some of the players who were registered had some questions. Thank you to those of who reached out. I will do my best to make accommodations to meet your needs - thank you for reaching out to me.

   The goal of the league is to get people playing ice hockey, thank you to all of you who are on this journey!!

   I will be sending out a link for everyone to register for the camp sessions. This was going to need to happen as some of you told me as session but did not register for it. Please look for the link to be sent to you over the weekend (by 3/27).

4/15/2022

  The list of sponsors on the Partner's page will be updated over the next few days. I took a leap of faith when I started building the league that I would be able to find a few businesses that would want to support the NACHL. With their support these businesses are helping to keep your league fees low. They have also put their faith in me/ us that their support will be rewarded by your patronage. I am not asking you to only use these businesses but if we do not support them, then they will not support us.

WOW!!

JUST WOW!!

  We have 80 registered players for Session 1, and more people wanting to join for Session 2. (Details will be posted next week.)

  Thank you to all of you who have spread the word and talked with your friends about playing!! You are the guys who are making this possible- thank you!

Week of 8/7

8/8/2022

  Session 2 games have started!! I will be updating the schedule on the website soon.

   Registration of Interest (RoI) for Session 3 have been sent out to players and those on the waitlist. If you want to be put on the list, start with the Expression of Interest (EoI) found on this page below. All ice events will be on Sundays at Eble Park Ice Arena.

Week of August 21

8/21/2022

  Players who have completed the Registration of Interest (RoI) will be sent a link to register for Session 3.

  Thank you to everyone who completed the RoI already. Given your input, over half of those who replied will be going to the "Hawks v Wild game on October 2nd, so there will not be a NACHL camp that week. Given the feedback from players who were in Session 1 and 2, there will be 2 days of camps so we can have the team practices.

  Unfortunately we cannot extend the league, so this will be a 9 week session. Only a handful of players will be out of town, there were some "maybes" - so there may be a need for some subs.

  Given that Session 3 will only be 9 weeks, the league fees will be reduced.

  Registration of Interest (RoI) for Session 3 have been sent out to players and those on the waitlist. If you want to be put on the list, start with the Expression of Interest (EoI) found on this page below. All ice events will be on Sundays at Eble Park Ice Arena.

  I will get the schedule for Session 3 up this week.

8/24/2022

  Step 3: Registration for Session 3 has been sent out to those who have completed the S3 RoI.

  I am working to compile the information about the merchandise. I hope to have it up soon.

  We have the go ahead to hold a tournament on 12/30 and 12/31. I will create a separate page with information and links. It will be open to current and past players who are in good standing with the league. The details are being hammered out. If you are interested in assisting, please send an e-mail to nachl-commish@gmail.com and state how you would like to help.

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 NACHL.Commish@underhillhockeygroup.com.

   * 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.

Love - Doc
