Welcome to the Newark Women's Developmental Hockey League!
Are you a woman, age 18-60+ who likes to laugh, have fun, stay in shape - oh, and play ice hockey?
Well, then this is the league for you! We have players of all ages, abilities, experience, and fitness levels – and we love introducing people to the game. We’re a developmental league, which means we don’t check, we aren’t mean, and we try really hard to keep ourselves & each other off the injured list.
So, if you've ever wanted to try hockey and can spare an hour a week to come hang out with some incredible women – we’d love to meet you!
We're looking for new players - no prior experience needed. We have loaner gear you can borrow for your first game to help you get started, experienced players who will teach you the game, and clinics to help you develop your skills.
If you have questions, want to join us for a game, or want to join our email list, email us at

Drop in/sub - $20 per game – max 3 games per season – paid the night you skate.

If you’re interested in joining but haven’t played hockey before (or in a while) - you can try out one game of hockey for free! If you love it and want to continue playing after the first game, you’ll need to sign up for USA Hockey and register – and we’ll tell you how.
We look forward to seeing you out on the ice!
