Hockey league looking to expand

The White Rock Senior Hockey League is expanding to Langley.

Formed in 1996 and entering its 15th season, the league has grown from 44 members to more than 500.

And with the Walnut Grove Sportsplex adding a new sheet of ice this fall, the league will begin playing some games out of there.

There are currently 24 teams registered for next season — in the gold, silver and bronze divisions — with space for more.

The league has three Langley teams — the Langley Lords, Fraser Sockeye and the Beavers.

Teams play a 21-game season with one game per week.

The league was founded on the principle of a gentlemen’s recreational hockey league where the teams and players compete in a sportsmanlike manner and display good will towards opponents and fellow league members.

League rules tally penalty infractions and once a player accumulates a certain amount of penalties on the season, they are no longer permitted to play.

It is open to those players 30 and over looking to play a recreational brand of hockey, regardless of ability. Players under 30 will be permitted if they are beginner adults or new to the game.

Cost is $580 per player, and this includes uniform rental and entry in the league’s year-end tournament.
