The purpose of the Old Geezers is to provide an enjoyable and safe game of hockey for older players (age 35+). Our program will allow you to work on those long forgotten moves that you had in you (or tried to have in you). Lastly, Old Geezers permits you to wake up the next morning without having to bandage those bruises from the night before.
Two teams of 16 players are divided randomly each night (teams are pre-determined prior to each week - PDFs will be posted below when available). Please bring a white and a dark jersey to each session as it is often necessary to balance the teams due to missing players. A referee officiates the game, and score will be maintained by the referee. Blatant penalties will result in a penalty shot. Excessive aggression by any player will result in expulsion from the Old Geezers program.
Existing Old Geezers players receive first priority on the night they skated the previous session. As a result it can be very difficult to get into specific nights. It is recommended that you jump on the waiting list as soon as possible to ensure even having a chance to get in. The waiting list will carry over from session to session.
General registration will open 30 days prior to the start of the upcoming session. An email will go out to the exisitng list of skaters, and you will typically have 2 weeks to committ to the season. If you do not committ by the deadline your spot will be given away to someone else. If we have open spots they will be given away on a first come, first serve basis. If you want to maintain your spot but cannot skate a season, we suggest finding someone to buyout your spot with the understanding that you want it back after the session ends. Spots will not be held for individuals wanting to take a session off but you can put yourself on the waiting list (bottom of it). This means that if you take the summer off and your spot is given away, your spot is not guaranteed to be open or available for the fall season.
