    First of all, this is a great idea for a forum, especially with the lockout depriving us of hockey talk.
    :handclap:

    Post what kind of hockey you play, position, age etc, as well as your highest level of competition.

    Myself, I play in the Adult Safe Hockey League, I'm a goalie, never played anything better than House league (bantam and midget) and Bush League Senior.

    I just got all new goal gear this year so it's a little tough getting it all broken in, but it's getting better.

    Just started organised last spring at the age of 33. Grew up in minnesota, always skated and played the pond but family couldn't afford the youth programs.
    I'm loving it! Everyone is so helpfull and freindly, except for the head hunters who have forced me to wear a full cage because some freak would shoot the puck at my face every time he had a chance. No lie five times in one game even when he had an open shot on goal he choose to lift it to my skull. the ref gave him 2 mins for being a p&ick I think.

    I play defence. and have just learned to not screen the goalie. my D partner is my greatest mentor. once I figured out he was yelling at me I started doing what he said and it has made me so much better. the better players still burn me but now it takes effort to burn me.

    I'm having the time of my life. Everyone no matter the age or sex needs to play hockey.

    Well I am 27...Played hockey since I was 3: played 4 years for my high school despite my coach hating me): played 1 year of prep school : found out I was nothing but a goon, hey 117 PIMS in 20 games isn't bad... Tried out for a D III(Southern Maine)team a few years back, I made it but I didn't play at all so I hung them up ...I play pick-up every now and then still but i can't play too much cause I run a Men's league in Gorham Maine where a few Fellow HF Boards members still play in(if ya want to see a cool site go to check my pro we have a message board and everything for the league)...Last nite we just had a couple of fights and somebody BITING somebody after a fight: aww some of the thing you see in men's league you wouldn't think could happen...By the way, I was a D man(either side) and I still would put down a 20 dollar wager to anybody who thinks they can get by me... :)

    I'm a goalie and the highest level I have played is Midget 16u (would have made Midget B that year if it wasn't for the 16u team) for the Tri-Valley Blue Devils. Currently I'm just playing Adult pickups though I'm going to get into an Adult league soon.

    If it wasn't for the age difference I'd say we were twins separated at birth....

    I started playing on an adult league three years ago at age 36. I grew up in Michigan playing pond hockey and pickup at the local rink but could never afford the youth programs. I also play defense.

    My +/- is good and I strip the puck or break up the play more often than I allow shots on goal. I never take a bad penalty. If I could develop a slap shot, I'd probably be in the top pairing.

    currently sitting 2nd on my team with 25pts in 13 games.

    We also played against Trinity Western University in October up here. 2 really good games. They were all about the speed....we were all about the hitting and punishing them when we got the chances haha...Won 4-2 in the Saturday night game, lost 7-4(half the team was hungover) sunday morning.

    I played 2 years of Midget AAA, attended 1 WHL camp :yo: hahaha...ya right. 2 BCHL camps and 2 VIJHL (www.vijhl.com) camps. I played for the Comox Valley Glacier Kings ( http://www.island.net/~gkings/index.html ) towards the end of the 99-00 season, beat Port Alberni in the first round of the playoffs in 5 games, with game 5 going to double OT then lost to the Campbell River Storm in the North Division finals in 3-0....and got smoked handlely haha...

  18. This is such a good idea for a thread...

    I'm 24, grew up playing pond hockey and wanted to play with the boys, but I wasn't allowed until I was about 12. By the time I was in HS, the coach said he didn't want any girls on his team (even though I was better than a lot of them), so I played pickup with the boys and took a few clinics with girls. I ended up transferring to a prep school with an awesome team and was converted from D to goal since I couldn't stop checking. I was recruited to a few schools, but didn't play college (I showed up and one of the coaches decided she didn't want 3 goalies, so I quit) other than for a local club team whenever they needed a goalie or when my ex wanted to practice shooting. Last year I played for the Senior Lady Monarchs travel team and pickup with men every Sunday. This year I'm playing pickup as a goalie with two different groups of guys and I'm a very bad forward for the MIT club team. Some nights I'm absolutely awful, but I love being out there.

    I play rec league and shinny year round. I played a bit of house league as a kid but I really didn't start skating until last December. I'm a defensive defenseman. I am pretty awful but I was a decent player in E division in Toronto Ice Vic Park last summer. I currently play non-contact intramural at Western. I am starting my own D division team in the ASHL for this coming summer at Scarborough four rinks. During my 4 months off school in the summer, I play hockey 5 days a week unless my groin injury flares up (4 days shinny/stick and puck, 1 day my actual league).

    I play Junior B for the Saskatoon Chiefs.

    The highest level I ever played was an exhibition game in junior a for the humboldt broncos who went on to be junior a champions of canada, that was 2 years ago.

    my league website is www.nsjhl.com

    There is a forum on there but i think its terrible ...
     
  24. No, I mean the Women's club team. Only undergrads (or first year grad students who didn't play one of their four years of undergrad) are allowed to play Varsity, and I finished my undergrad in '02.

    We call those slow puck leagues in these parts; no hitting, no slap shots.
