Summer  2016

Welcome
Welcome to the Sylvania Area Senior Hockey League website. This is a 35 & over league.  We are currently playing in our Summer program.

If new skaters are interested in becoming a part of our league, please contact Tim Pollauf at tpollauf@sashl.com- do not register to play without first contacting us (Winter season ONLY).

News & Updates

 Due to defective power lines which feed the Tam-O-Shanter facility, there will be NO GAME this Wednesday July 13, 2016.  Repairs should be complete by Thursday and we'll be back in business for the following week.

Congratulations to the SkyBlue team for winning the 2016 playoffs!

 

Summer 2016 guidelines

-League starts April 13th 2016 and runs straight through September 14th 2016

-23 weeks of continuous Wednesday night hockey

-Costs for the program this summer will be $360 per player

-Game times will start out at 8:00 & 9:30pm for the first seven weeks on rink TWO, then 8:30 &10pm game times till mid August all on rink ONE, finishing up the season with 7:30 & 9pm game times also on rink ONE.

-Each game will have Two paid referees and a scorekeeper. Wins/losses will be the only statistics kept and recorded to our website on a weekly basis

-There will be FOUR teams consisting of a maximum of 15 skaters and one goaltender

-Games will be 1-1/2 hours long. We basically skate TWO halves (not your traditional three periods)

-Ice resurfacing will be limited to "between games" only. This maximizes our actual play time

-This league is open to everybody (Not just SASHL current players). Male & female, young & old, strong & weak. It is intended as an "off season stay in shape" kind of league where we simply want to have fun and get some exercise at the same time. It is more laid back as we're not in competition for the cup, or any other prestigious award

-Jerseys are provided (no socks) with the year and league logo on the front to new incoming players who did not participate last summer. Prior summer players will continue to wear their jersey from last summer.

-This summer we will be starting out skating on Rink TWO up to May 25th, (rink TWO will be melted for summer maintenance shortly after this date) then we will finish the season out on rink ONE.

-In the past, and again for current participants, we will allow two players to "split" one position. In the event of this, ONE player MUST pay the full amount, and the "split" player then works it out to share or reimburse the paid player. This then will be noted in the "comments" box when you register

-We try to honor any requests where possible, so make sure you include them in the comments section. Fathers skating with their kids, neighbors or co-workers who wish to be on the same team, also someone who you DO NOT wish to skate with, etc.

-The deadline will be the first night we play. I anticipate we'll be full prior to the first game so don't put off registering yourself to the last minute. There may not be any spots available by then

-As players register, I'll import their data to the "registration verification" section of this website. This is nothing more than you verifying that the league actually DID receive your registration. This also allows potential registrants to see who is already in the program and may stimulate others to join up

-Registration will CLOSE when we hit 64 paid player positions. Anybody who misses the deadline will have to sign up as a potential replacement player in the event we lose any players right off the bat (this does happen every now & then)

-Any NEW players who have NOT participated in a winter 2015-16 program, will need to obtain a valid USA hockey registration number. Do NOT purchase this number until April 1, 2016. Waiting until then will allow you skate for 17 months before having to register for another number. It then won't expire until August 31, 2016. For most of us it doesn't matter as we skate year round and must renew it annually no matter what. For a new person, you would be able to skate TWO summers on the same USA number. If you decide to wait until April 1 to register with USA hockey, enter "000000000APRIL" (9 zeros followed by April) in the USA hockey number box when registering with us. You will then be required to provide the actual USA hockey number in April prior to the first game in order to skate.

 -One final note on how we determine the order of who gets in and who does not.  First ... all returning players from last season automatically take precedence over new incoming players. Then existing SASHL players will fill any vacancies. Finally any complete new stranger who wants to get in and skate with us will be allowed after the prior two conditions have been met. Prior summer players AND the SASHL league have kept this league funded for over ten years so it is only fair that we cater to them first.

Good luck and get yourself registered!
