Glacier Hockey League Winter Season
The Glacier Hockey League (GHL) winter season has nine divisions to accommodate players of varying skill levels. Players register individually and will be placed on a team through one of the following ways:
- Captain-submitted roster: Captains may submit a full roster of players. However, spots are not guaranteed unless players are registered and paid in full. Roster spots will not be held for non-registered players.
- Captain’s draft: Players not on a designated roster will be placed in a pre-season draft. We will make every effort to accommodate player/team requests where space allows. Players registering after the draft will be placed where there is room.
Team jerseys are provided for the winter season, which players may keep at the end of the season.
