Welcome to the EAHC website!
Welcome to the Empire Amateur Hockey Conference website. Our site is evolving and we add content continuously.

Members of the EAHC Board who supervise this league as well as other league info such as the League Timeline and Documents can be found under the ABOUT tab at the top of this page. The RESOURCES tab also has a lot of useful info.
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 teams participate in 4 to 6 Cross Ice Jamborees hosted by local rinks and member organizations from November thru February. 8U/RWB play 14 Half Ice Games at the Red, White & Blue skill levels. Squirt 10U teams play a 16 game schedule at the White & Blue levels. Peewee 12U, Bantam 14U & Midget 18U teams play a 16 game (12U), 18 game (14U) and 20 game (18U) schedule. Our EAHC 2023-2024 hockey season runs from October 1, 2023 through the end of February, 2024. Most EAHC teams begin practicing in September or early October.
ALL GAMES WILL OCCUR UNLESS THE RINKS CLOSE! All teams should always have 1 coach ready to skate as a referee (with helmet, skates and whistle) just in case a car does not start, someone gets sick etc etc. Games MUST be played at 8U, 10U and 12U levels with coaches as refs if no referees are available.
