CRHL Registration



CRHL/Rec Hockey Info

NCYH offers a Recreational hockey program for each age division. These age divisions are 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U. This program is designed for those that enjoy hockey but are relatively new to the game or have other interests outside of hockey that simply do not allow them to play competitive hockey. All of our Recreational teams play in and are governed by the rules of the Colorado Recreational Hockey League (CRHL).

Teams will play 7-8 "tiering" games prior to Thanksgiving. These tiering games are designed to give the league commissioner an overview of team strength. Once the tiering games are complete, teams will be placed in a competitive division and will play up to 7-8 league games in their respective division (Red, White, Blue).


Games will start in late September for Midget, bantams and Peewees. Squirts games start in October. Allstart dates are subject to the CRHL timeline made in the fall . Games are played on either Saturday OR Sunday.
