Ice Hockey Leagues


Learn to Play

The AIHA ‘Learn to Play’ program is run all year round at both the Avondale and Botany rinks. Everyone learns basic hockey skills and game play, with the emphasis on fun!

Under 12 Super League

The Under 12 Super League offer newcomers the ability to enjoy fun, non-competitive games in superhero themed teams! Games are cross ice, 3 on 3 format with a 1 minute shift.

Bantam League

Bantam League (previously known as the Midget League) features players that are loosely selected on age, skill and size with the age range generally being between 14 and 10.

Junior League

Junior League (previously known as League 1) comprises of players between the ages of 19 and 14. There are four teams in this competition and this is a contact league.

Representative Hockey

There are four national representative leagues, U14, U17 ,U20 and Woman’s (NZWIHL). This is serious ice hockey with teams travelling around the country at weekends playing one another.

Women’s Hockey

The Women’s Ice Hockey league is run in a similar format to the men’s league, with games being played in a round robin in addition to a finals weekend, thus greatly increasing the number of games played.

Senior Non-Check

Senior Non-Check Hockey is the AIHA’s largest league and brings together a mixture of players and varying levels of skill. Our Senior Non-Check season runs from March to October.


The five NZIHL teams are predominantly made up of New Zealand players, but each team is able to import players from outside of New Zealand although only 5 may be dressed any one game.
