The NGHL's schedule's purpose is two-fold:
The NGHL provides a supplementary schedule and well-run, competitive events for 10U through 19U at Tier I and Tier II levels. For membership, we look for a commitment to a schedule where each team would attend a minimum of 2 events, play 5 games (4 games for 10U & 12U), and attend the NGHL National championship weekend. From an admin perspective, the workload will be lighter with a guaranteed multi-event schedule providing simplicity and efficiency. Learn more.
The NGHL events are stay-to-play.
Red Division showcases have a 5-game guarantee. Guest teams are welcome to participate in these Red Division events with approval prior to registering.
The Blue Division events host teams across multiple levels. Schedules are built to ensure competitive games. All Blue Division events have a 5-game guarantee with finals in each division. Guest teams are welcome to participate in these Blue Division events.
We know travel can be difficult with younger players, so the NGHL is putting structure around a Futures Division (10U & 12U) that supports the mid/west teams and east coast teams. All Futures Division events are guaranteed 4 games per event with finals based on points. Guest teams are welcome to participate.
