How is Puckhead Hockey different from pickup hockey?
Unlike pickup hockey, we strive to make Puckhead Hockey as close to real game play as possible. We have a maximum of 20 skaters (plus 2 goalies). There are 10 skaters per team, two lines of 5 skaters each. Each line skates for 2 minutes and then changes. This way, each skater gets equal time on the ice.
There are no referees, so infractions are kept to a minimum and self-enforced. Remember, this is club hockey with an emphasis on fun, skill building and exercise. 'Please leave the hot dogging, chippy playing and puck hogging at home!
Where do you play?
There are several Ice Venues around the Valley and we do try to obtain ice time where ever ice is available.
How much does it cost to play?
Game fee is currently $35 per game at all venues. You only pay for the games you play and not the ones you don't. Its pay-as-you-go pricing. Game registration is done easily online for all members current in their annual membership fees. Goalies do not pay membership fees or game fees. The annual membership fee for Skater $75 per year or $25 more for the VIP Service. This includes your first set of custom jerseys, a free skate on your birthday and other club benefits. There is no membership fees for Guest Membership.
How old do I have to be to play?
Adults of any age can play. Younger players under 18 years old will be allowed to play on a case-by-case basis, with their parents permission and signed waiver. Contact Ray at 480-861-3250 if you have a son or daughter that would like to play.
What if I get hurt during game play?
Puckhead Hockey requires an injury liabillty waiver to be signed before you can skate. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you understand that you SKATE AT YOUR OWN RISK and Puckhead Hockey Club is not responsible or liable for any injury incured before, during, or after any club event. The waiver is considered signed and accepted during the original registration process with a digitial initial. The waiver is available on-line for review. Please take time to read the waiver. We suggest that you wear full protective gear at all times to help minimize the inherent risk associated with a sport of this nature.
How do I sign up?
Puckhead Hockey Club requires website registration and payment of membership fees ( No membership fees for Guest members and Goalies) . Simply visit www.puckheadhockey.com and click on register now. Once you registered, just log in and you will see the game calendar. Select the game you want to play in click on it and its that easy. Please be sure to join the wait list if your game is already full. We do lock out several spots so even though the game may show full it is very likely you will get added to the active roster if you use the wait list.
What if I sign up but have to cancel short notice?
Cancellations are troublesome for all members because it makes the teams skate uneven or short, but we know they do happen. Our Short Notice (within 6 hours of game time) Cancellation Policy is as follows:
The spot you cancel needs to be paid for. If you cancel WITHIN 6 hours of game time, you will be responsible for the fee, payable at your next skate or if you have available balance it will be taken from your account.
No Shows are bad. If you simply do not show up for a scheduled game, cancel a game within 2 hours of game time or after 6pm on a Friday night for a Sat morning game, this is considered a No Show and the fee is double the game fee.
