I merged this into the other Denver area rec league thread, because it might help.

Can you describe more about what that level represents in Minnesota?

I would say that the better "C" leagues in Westminster, some of us played college club, maybe one-fourth played high school, and the rest either played some youth hockey (but quit before high school) or picked it up as an adult.

Right now, I play goal for a few upper-C teams there. Did you sign up for the summer? Right now is the tail end of the winter playoffs, so I'd recommend going to a few playoff games from the levels you are considering, and see what you think.

The definition for the league was Level 2 - Beginner to Intermediate - Players / Goalies at this level will have some hockey experience but still looking for an easy, fun pace. I am still waiting to sign up but am leaning towards D1 just to make sure I am not too out-matched. I will have to go watch the leagues playing in the playoffs right now, do you know where I can find the game times for lower C and D level leagues?

From what you're describing, it sounds like D1 is the right level.

The schedule for the Ice Centre is here:

I was trying to pull up a more specific link, but at the moment, I'm having trouble connecting to the link above.

I'm in a similar boat with with you. I signed up for C8 mostly because Friday nights are good for me. I figure that there really couldn't be too much difference between C8 and D1. If you want, you could sign up as a free agent with me and we could be noobs on the same team together

Hmm...I signed up as a free agent for a D1 team before I read your reply, not sure if I can change it or not and how we would go about signing up to get on the same team.

Well, I know that there was a place on the registration form to say if there is another free agent who you would like to be on the same team as. I used it because I had a buddy that might have been able to play, but he wasn't. If you are really interested, I bet you could call them and change your preferred league. I think that as free agents, there's really no guarantee that we get the league we want anyway and more just an approximation.
