The Falcons Youth Hockey League is a recreational hockey league for youth players through age 16. All age levels are non-checking. All enrolled players should possess the correct level of skill, players are subject to removal from the league if skill level does not match. Please reach out to the Hockey Department if you have questions regarding your player's eligibility.
The Pineville Youth Hockey League runs year round and has three seasons: Fall, Spring and Summer. Each season is independent of the previous season. Teams and player enrollments do not carry over from one season to the next.
You will receive one set of jerseys and socks per year at the beginning of the Fall season. If you join the league in the Spring or Summer seasons and don't play in the Fall season, you will receive jerseys and socks at that time.
Players should first complete Pineville's Learn To Skate and Learn To Play classes or comparable classes elsewhere. Players that have not taken these classes but demonstrate proficient skating and hockey skills may participate in the League. Players must be enrolled in the league and fully paid. Walk-ons are not permitted. Players must wear full protective gear. For more information concerning what gear is required please consult our Hockey Gear Guide. Players must have a current USA Hockey registration (see below).
All division games consist of three, 16 minute run time periods followed by a shootout if necessary.
While games are non-checking, hockey is a physical sport with incidental and intentional contact. Players are taught at all levels to use their bodies to gain and maintain control of the puck and to gain position over other players. Many PYHL players advance to more competitive leagues where checking is permitted, so our players must be prepared for the physical elements of the game. For players age ten and up, we strongly recommend that you visit our Concussion Management Page.
A USA Hockey registration must be current and on file at the time of registration. All USA Hockey registrations expire on August 31st of each year. Players can register and pay at the following link: Register For USA Hockey. All fees go directly to USA Hockey and provide players with supplemental insurance in the event that they are injured while playing in a USA Hockey sanctioned event. Registration also provides USA Hockey membership benefits which can be reviewed at their website.
The Pineville Youth Hockey League will not tolerate from its players, coaches, parents or guardians: fighting; deliberate actions on or off the ice that can lead to injury; destruction or damage of any property or facility; conduct that disrupts team practices, games, events; or conduct that reflects negatively upon the image of Pineville Youth Hockey. A player suspension or total expulsion from the Pineville Youth Hockey program may be used if deemed necessary and is at the sole discretion of the Pineville Ice House.
Pineville Youth Hockey selects coaches based on their qualifications, coaching and playing experience, character, and commitment to youth hockey. Please visit our Hockey Coaches Page to read about our staff. To join our coaching staff, visit our Employment page.
