The goal of the Cardinal Road Hockey League is to allow members of various skill levels to enjoy (competitive) hockey at the Greenwich Skating Club. We have anticipated that work, travel and family obligations will affect players ability to consistently attend so we will plan on teams of 20 or so players per team to accommodate the hectic schedules.
We invite all levels to join the league, and in each game, lines will be organized according to level so everyone is assured a great time. We will hold the draft on October 28th at 7pm at GSC and the season begins on Sunday, November 8th at 7:15pm. All games will be held at GSC on Sunday nights.
All members and alumni are welcome. We ask that our alumni become vacation members for the season. Coaches are invited to play at no cost.

This program welcomes first time hockey players who can skate forward on their own. It is designed to teach the fundamentals of skating and an introduction to the game of hockey. The kids will work on basic skating skills (edge work, stopping, cross-overs and backward skating) as well as introduction to the basics of hockey such as passing, shooting, and stick handling.
Mini Mites meet on Friday afternoons at the Boys and Girls Club from 4:30-5:30pm and Saturday mornings from 7-8am at Greenwich Skating Club
Outdoor Hockey League (OHL)
OHL is the core of the club, where the spirit of inclusiveness and competition are combined. We encourage skaters of all abilities to participate and will pay close attention to girls and boys new to hockey to ensure that their first experience is fantastic.
