If you are over the age of 35 and looking for a fun and relaxed atmosphere to play hockey and get some exercise, the Master’s League might be your best bet!

Unlike the Co-ed Adult League (SIAHL), the Master’s League is managed and operated by Sharks Ice Staff. Please read through this section to find out more specific information on one of the most popular Leagues in our program!

The Master’s League is composed of two age-specific Divisions: Over 35; Over 50. Over 35 play weekly on Tuesday night and Over 50 play weekly on Thursday nights. To learn more and join the mailing list, please reach out the Master’s League Supervisor.


Current Season Schedule

The Over 35 division plays on Tuesday evenings and the Over 50 division plays on Thursday evenings.

Team Assignment

Unlike the Co-ed Adult League (SIAHL), teams in the Master’s League are created by Adult League Management. Prior to the 1st week of the season, new teams are created with returning players distributed to new teams along with new players. This creates equity for all teams along with keeping things fresh for returning players.

Generally, the teams will consist of 1 goalie and 15 skaters. The Master’s League Manager will send out team assignments a week before the first game. The League will distribute a colored jersey to all paid players prior to the first scheduled game.

Skill Level

Skill levels vary throughout Master’s League from advanced beginner to lower advanced, with most participants being somewhere in the middle. Each team will consist of an even number of players with skill levels ranging from Division 3 through Division 7. (See Co-ed Adult League for skill level definitions.)


Registration for the Master’s League is done via our online registration and payment system, DaySmart. Goalies should consult the league manager prior to registration as these spots fill quickly.

All players register as individuals and pay fees before the first game. All players must have USA Hockey number/insurance (available through USA Hockey) and an SIAHL waiver (see bottom of page). The waiver must be submitted and accepted online prior to first skate.

Standings Statistics

We do not keep statistics for the Master’s League. The intention of the League is not to win the division title, or the Hart Trophy (League MVP), it is to provide players over the age of 35 a safe, competitive an fun hockey environment. It will only take a season or two for new players to meet everyone.

Specific Senior League Rules

Please read the SIAHL Rules and Regulations for information on how our Adult League is managed including game formats, equipment requirements etc. The Master’s League is based on camaraderie and getting some exercise. To curb any extracurricular activity on the ice, any player who receives 2 penalties in as single game is immediately ejected. Let’s have fun out there!
