    Hi I'm a beginner player just starting out... I'm wondering if there is a league that offers a division of the appropriate level and is either coed or women's only. Thanks.

    U of C used to have a "Beginner shinny program" that catered to those with almost zero skill/experience(I played in it for 8 years, yes I'm awful)

    you might check with the U Of A campus rec and see if they offer any public programs of this nature.Worst case scenario....a wasted phone call.

    Women are allowed in the ERHL. Although I have only seen a couple players that are female.

    I would contact Edmonton Minor Hockey http://www.emha.ca/

    Yeah, SAWHA is a good site. I wonder if there's a Non contact league in edmonton. There's one in Calgary that I played in over the summer. They had women's only and co-ed teams.

    Thanks for the tips everybody! Am contacting NAFHA (Northern Alberta Female Hockey Association) and ASHL (Adult Safe Hockey League). Anyone heard about these leagues?

    I played ASHL here in Winnipeg. I guess it was ok - there were never any organizational problems (messing around with rinks or schedules) and everything was done in one multi-sheet arena. That said, the ice times SUCKED.

    You can't blame the league for the actions of its players, but I found it ironic that in the non-contact Adult "Safe" Hockey League, I was leveled into the boards from behind and subsequently got into the only hockey fight of my career (at the age of 33, and I've played since I was 5).

    Unless the league administrators are manifestly incompetent, it's all about the people you get to play with. If they're cool, you'll have a great time.

    What ASHL division did you play in? I would be in the lowest one obviously, is roughing a problem only in the higher divisions? Btw, this ASHL Edmonton branch just started this year... no previous history to go on.

    It depends.

    I played in a lower level of a leauge and the roughing was terrible. Mainly because the ref wouldn't call anything.

    If the ref calls the appropraite penalties it usually isnt a problem.

    I think you mean http://www.ccrhl.ca, not .com.

    And even though this thread is 4 years old, I may as well answer the original question. http://www.erhl.ca has a dedicated co-ed league. http://www.bophockey.com is a small league -- just 8 teams -- but is also co-ed.
