Backyard Hockey League

  New Zealand's Premier Interactive Recreational Ice Hockey Community

Buddies, Hockey, Life

The Backyard Hockey League is New Zealand's Premier Interactive Recreational Ice Hockey Community created BY hockey players FOR hockey players.

 The BHL is the vision of two hearty Canadians who's goal is to provide hockey players in New Zealand an authentic, no nonsense brand of Canadian style hockey. The members of this unique hockey experience will enjoy the game the way it was meant to be played which cuts out all the BULL leaving only the BEEF.  Our aim is to deliver competative games with a professional-like feel and player centred officiating in a fun and social atmosphere. The heart of the BHL resides in its community members. Hockey is a social game that exists and thrives beyond the rink. It is a passion, a legacy and a way of life which transcends nationalities, races and creeds. It is our goal to deliver a hockey experience that pays homage to and closely resembles that of those who have grown up on the ice.

"I don't know where the loyalty lies in baseball. You really don't have to protect each other hockey it's important that they look out for each other." Sean William Scott (Aka: Doug Glatt #69)
The Backyard Hockey League is not about skill alone but about passion and comaraderie. It is a living, evolving brotherhood in which to share stories, ideas and play the game we hold so dear without prejudice.
"Half the game is mental; the other half is being mental." -Jim McKenny, former Toronto Maple Leaf.
We would like to welcome you to OUR backyard rink. It is a special place for which memories are made. This is your community, it belongs to ALL of us and we will make it everything we've always wanted it to be.
We look forward to looking out that kitchen window and seeing you playing hockey in the backyard!
 'Keep yer head up and yer stick on the ice!'
