This year the EAHC will manage and supervise league play for approximately 100 youth hockey teams in the greater Rochester area. Teams range from RWB 6U & 8U through Midget 18U. 6U participate in several Cross Ice Jamborees hosted by local rinks and member organizations. 8U play 14 Half Ice Games at the White & Blue skill levels. Squirt 10U & Peewee 12U teams play a 16 game schedule at the White & Blue levels. Squirt/10U & Peewee/12U Red teams will pay 10 games in the Thruway Series against Red teams in Snowbelt (Syracuse) and the remainder of their season against teams in Empire. Older divisions do not separate by skill level. Bantam 14U play an 18 game schedule & Midget 18U teams play a 20 game schedule. Our EAHC 2019-2020 hockey season runs from October, 2019 through February, 2020 with playoffs for 10U thru 18U divisions from February 27 to March 1, 2020 culminating in Championship Finals at Webster Ice Arena.

Message to All Coaches

Message to All Empire Coaches:

During the second week of January, Nick Tochelli, our local Supervisor of Officials sent a letter to all the local Presidents.  Hopefully by now, most of you have seen the letter (or heard about it) from your House Director or President.  It was primarily aimed at the Squirt Coaches but the message applies to all new Coaches and also to those of you with 5, 10 or even 20 years of coaching experience.  The theme is to improve team interactions with the referees before we reach a crisis point where Coaches are receiving suspensions regularly and Empire starts bringing coaches in for hearings.  ...

The rest of the message posted here has been moved to the Tab Entitled "Message to All Coaches" on the left hand side of this page.
