Coed or women's hockey in Edmonton?

Hi I'm a beginner player just starting out... I'm wondering if there is a league that offers a division of the appropriate level and is either coed or women's only. Thanks.

Southern Alberta Women's Hockey Association

They are based in Calgary but they might be able to point you in the right direction.

U of C used to have a "Beginner shinny program" that catered to those with almost zero skill/experience(I played in it for 8 years, yes I'm awful)

you might check with the U Of A campus rec and see if they offer any public programs of this nature.Worst case scenario....a wasted phone call.

Women are allowed in the ERHL. Although I have only seen a couple players that are female.

I would contact Edmonton Minor Hockey http://www.emha.ca/

Yeah, SAWHA is a good site. I wonder if there's a Non contact league in edmonton. There's one in Calgary that I played in over the summer. They had women's only and co-ed teams.

Thanks for the tips everybody! Am contacting NAFHA (Northern Alberta Female Hockey Association) and ASHL (Adult Safe Hockey League). Anyone heard about these leagues?

I played ASHL here in Winnipeg. I guess it was ok - there were never any organizational problems (messing around with rinks or schedules) and everything was done in one multi-sheet arena. That said, the ice times SUCKED.

You can't blame the league for the actions of its players, but I found it ironic that in the non-contact Adult "Safe" Hockey League, I was leveled into the boards from behind and subsequently got into the only hockey fight of my career (at the age of 33, and I've played since I was 5).

Unless the league administrators are manifestly incompetent, it's all about the people you get to play with. If they're cool, you'll have a great time.

What ASHL division did you play in? I would be in the lowest one obviously, is roughing a problem only in the higher divisions? Btw, this ASHL Edmonton branch just started this year... no previous history to go on.

It depends.

I played in a lower level of a leauge and the roughing was terrible. Mainly because the ref wouldn't call anything.

If the ref calls the appropraite penalties it usually isnt a problem.

I think you mean http://www.ccrhl.ca, not .com.

And even though this thread is 4 years old, I may as well answer the original question. http://www.erhl.ca has a dedicated co-ed league. http://www.bophockey.com is a small league -- just 8 teams -- but is also co-ed.
