Exciting news! You asked for it, now we have it!

Check out the “Previous Seasons” tab on the bottom of the home page to see League stats from the infancy of the League up to and including last season.

There a a few gaps in the early years, and stats were not as in depth as they are now, But it is a fascinating retrospective of our League history, statistically.

Thanks to League historian, solid winger, and all around all-star Bob Royle for providing these stats.

*NEW*Update for Year End Banquet

The Nape hockey League has decided to have a full League banquet this year. We are excited, as this will be the first such event since Covid. Due to some logistical issues, the banquet will take place on July 15 at the Geraldine Rubia Centre on Shaw Street. We are asking for a minimum $10 donation at the door, to be forwarded on to the Rubia Centre to aid them in the wonderful work they do.

Your team reps will be in touch, as we are hoping to get an indication of how many players are going to be attending.
