Summerside Recreation Hockey League: Welcome

The Summerside Recreational Hockey League: The Tradition Continues...

This is the website for the Summerside Recreational Hockey League (S.R.H.L.) the Summerside Industrial Hockey League (S.I.H.L.). The Summerside Spring Recreational Hockey League (S.S.R.H.L.). and the newly created Summerside Womens Recreational Hockey League (S.W.R.H.L.). You can check out the site for rosters, stats, news and other information about our Leagues, Tournaments and events and other recreational leagues in the Summerside area.

If you are looking to play in any of the leagues, you may contact league president and site administrator, Aaron Doyle at any time. We do accept new players on registration night. We hold our rec Hockey registration in early October and our league begins play the first week of November. We take a short break at Christmas and then finish up at the end of March.

The S.R.H.L. is very proud to host the 'Shockers Annual Mardi-Gras Rec. Hockey Tournament' every spring (*March 27-29, 2015) and is now becoming known as one of the largest recreational hockey tournaments in Eastern Canada. Every year this tournament grows in popularity and this season is no exception as we've been receiving inquiries from all over North America. This tournament is open to both male and female teams and provides an excellent rec hockey/sociallizing atmosphere. The SRHL is your #1 headquarters for rec hockey fun and Shock's Annual Mardi Gras is a tournament every "true" rec hockey team should participate in at some point.

The Summerside Recreational Hockey League was established in 1967/1968, by then league president, Ron MacArthur and was at the time, the only rec hockey league of it's kind in North America. The four team, recreational league was developed to promote fun and community fellowship within an "open draft" hockey organization. We are one of the oldest rec hockey leagues east of Montreal and have played continuously since 1967.

The Summerside Industrial Hockey League was established in 2008 to create a highly competitive Recreational Hockey League in the Summerside area. With no body contact or no slapshots, the league will be simply highly skilled players playing as hard as they can from start to finish. Most players have played Junior B, Midget AAA or AA, Senior, or some even university hockey at some point of there hockey career. That being said if you didnt play in one of them leagues does not mean you cant play in the S.I.H.L. Just know that most guys are pretty competitive and play hard the whole game. They take no shifts off, and expect all players to play the same, clean, fast, and right till the buzzer goes at the end of the game. Lots of skill and speed will make playing in the S.I.H.L. a great time for all players.  If you are looking to play in the S.I.H.L. you can contact myself to be put in touch with a team rep. In 2011-2012 the S.I.H.L. has changed its format to a full rostered team registration for entry into the SIHL. If you are looking to put a team in the SIHL please contact Aaron Doyle by Oct. 1. The S.I.H.L. had started with 4 teams since its inception in 2008. For the 2012-2013 season the S.I.H.L. has 6 teams registered for play with games at Slemon Park and C.U.P. in Summerside.

The Summerside Spring Rec. Hockey League was established in 2010. This S.S.R.H.L. will be a yearly tradition each Spring with players from all levels of hockey young and old. All rosters will have 13 skaters and a goalie. This league is made up of players from age 14-65, there for skill level is at both ends of the spectrum. The S.S.R.H.L. will play 10 games of Round Robin, then a crossover, then a final. Rules will be the same as S.I.H.L. with no redline. In 2009 the S.S.R.H.L. started with 4 teams. In 2011 the S.S.R.H.L. went up to 6 teams. 

The Summerside Womens Rec. Hockey League is in its first year of operations for the 2014-2015 season. Any females interested in playing in a local organized womens rec hockey league should contact me asap. Shinny will be starting in October and will continue for the 2014-2015 season. Any female is permitted to play, there will be no restriction on skill level. 

All leagues are open to anyone, 19 years of age or older. There are no restrictions on skill level. In the SRHL all players are ranked by a number system, following our annual rookie game dubbed - The Ice-Breaker Challenge. A league draft is then held, where team reps select from the registered base of players to ensure four well-balanced teams. Balancing of teams promotes sportsmanship, fun and competitiveness within the league.

This 2014-2015 season marks over fortyeight years of continuous play for the S.R.H.L. There are very few, if any, rec hockey leagues in North America that can boast about that and it's something to be very proud of. Here's a brief outline of the league.

- Each team plays twice weekly at 'Credit Union Place' in Summerside. 
- All of our games are officiated by one referee and one time/score keeper.
- Our season consists of approximately 32-34 games, including a play-off championship.
- At season's end, an awards banquet is held in Summerside.
- Enrollment in the league is limited to 52 players.

In the SRHL each year, team reps will draft players on to their teams, where completely new teams are formed. As a result, players will get to know each other and in many cases, would have played together at one time or another in past seasons.

In mid December, a league executive meeting is held to ensure that the teams are indeed well balanced and if needed, trades would then occur.

All major infractions result in suspensions. Any unsportsmanlike incident will go under review and guilty parties will be dealt with accordingly. All suspensions may be appealed to the disciplinary committee, which consists of team reps and league officers. Disciplinary committee's final judgement will stand.
