Since the summer of 2001, Greater Seattle Hockey League has grown into the largest adult recreational ice hockey league in the Northwest and one of the largest in the country.
The league offers two seasons to keep you busy on the ice throughout the year. Our Fall/Winter Season includes 22 games plus double-elimination playoffs and runs from October to April. Our Summer Season consists of 12 games plus single-elimination playoffs and runs from May to August.
GSHL also hosts two tournaments each year. Our Spring Tournament is held each year on the first weekend of May. As many as 40 teams from around the Northwest participate, making it one of the largest adult recreational tournaments in North America. We also host a smaller 10-18 team summer tournament in mid-July.
For players looking to learn hockey as a beginner or looking to improve their skills, GSHL has partnered with Hockey Educational Systems
GSHL welcomes new players of all skill levels. Prior to each season we host three to five free evaluation skates. These evaluation skates give players new to the league a chance to perform basic skating, passing and shooting skills, along with a brief scrimmage. Captains of GSHL teams in need of players attend each session to participate in a draft at the end of each session. After the draft, new players are introduced to the captains of their teams.
GSHL strives for competitive games and placing players on appropriate teams. With nearly 100 teams split between eight divisions (usually include A-B-C subdivisions), it's very easy to find a team and level of play that works for everyone. GSHL constantly monitors teams and works to move players and teams up or down in skill levels when needed.
