Women's, Masters, and More

In addition to leagues for youth and adults, we offer a Women's League (females 13+) and a Masters League (men 35+, women 30+). Many participants in these leagues also play in an adult league. We also offer a variety of training clinics, such as power skating, throughout the year.

Women's League

The Women's League is open to all females of ages 13 and over. Women of all skill levels are invited, and many of the players are relatively new to the game.


This league places a high level of emphasis on fun, good-spirited competition and positive social interactions both on the ice and sometimes in the cafe after a game! 

Schedule and More

There are no formal trainings and games are typically played once per week on a Tuesday night. The Women's season in 2021 is tentatively scheduled from September through mid-December


Masters League

The coed non-checking Masters League is open to our more seasoned players (men 35+ and women 30+). 

Games are not refereed and the atmosphere is casual and social, with most players looking to get some exercise while having fun with a sport they love. 

Schedule and More

There are no formal trainings and scrimmages are 10-11p most Wednesdays throughout the year, excepting holidays. Age-eligible CIHA members are welcome to drop in and play Masters on a casual basis.

(We don't keep track of game scores or stats in Masters League!) 

Training Clinics

CIHA occasionally offers skill sessions and special training clinics, sometimes just for specific groups, and sometimes open to all players. Past sessions have included skills sessions for senior league, skills for women, and power skating sessions open to all.

Learn To Be a Referee

The Canterbury Ice Hockey Referees Association (CIHRA) is a separate organisation from CIHA and is comprised of more than a dozen trained ice hockey referees, ranging from relatively new officials to those with many years of experience who have refereed International Ice Hockey Federation sanctioned world competitions.

Schedule and More

There are currently no referee training sessions scheduled. Check back for our 2021 schedule as it develops, or contact us and we'd be happy to put you in touch with a CIHRA representative.
