Season Details

 

Registration is now open for the 2021 Fall NMHockey Season!

Coming off almost a year and half break due to COVID, we are doing registration slightly different.Beginning in May we began reaching to each player individually that was rostered in the Spring 2020 season (Current Players) to see who is returning. Once we understand who is returning and what spots need to be filled in each division, we are reaching out to those that were subbing in the league prior to our hiatus. Any open rosters spots will be filled with new players interested in rostering to a team. Registration for all players will end when all rosters are filled.

New players or returning players should visit the New or Returning Player Information page and reach out via email or text to let me know they are interested in joining a team.

We always strive to get every player on a team who interested in joining, but given we maintain no more than 10 skaters and a goalie per team, it may not be possible to accommodate everyone. Any players we are not able to get on a team may sub ( subbing in the league ) when the league starts up. Players that are subbing will be given priority when there is a mid-season opening, based on the best match of skill level for the player they are replacing. Subbing is also a great way to get ice time, determine the best division for a player and allow new players to get to know New Mexico’s great hockey player community.

See you all on the ice soon! Joe


We will be reaching out by email to players to let them know when they can start taking payments. Payments may be made by mailing a check or Venmo. See the Registration page for the mailing address and Venmo account, as well as the dates and times when we will be collecting in-person payments. We may add additional in-person dates if necessary.

We are really hoping to do a reboot kickoff party at the end of June, so we are urging players that are planning to join to get registered (pay their fees) as soon as possible.

Important notes about partial payments:

  • Although NMHockey accommodates players that need to split their league fees into two payments, at time of registration all players are committing to a full season and paying the full amount.  As a courtesy, if a player must drop out during the season for any reason, that player is responsible for the all fees until a suitable replacement player is found.  A “suitable replacement player” would be one that is a close match in skill level. Typically this can take several weeks.
  • If paying half, the remainder will be due the week of Sunday, Aug 29.

Outpost Season Details

We are starting registration for the 2021 Fall NMHockey season at the Outpost Ice Arena and are planning to fill rosters for 20 teams again: 4 E Division, 4 D Division, 4 C Division, 4 B2 Division, 4 B1 Division and 4 A “Premier League” teams.

If space permits, players may skate in more than one division. Players will receive $50 off ($25 if discounted for captaining, goalie, etc.) for each additional league they play.  Note: The multi-division discount does not apply across rinks.  Let me know if you wish to play in more than one division and I will let you know after new player sign ups if slots are available.

  • Season begins Wednesday, Jul 7.

Game Days and Times:

Note: We have not received an official schedule from the Outpost yet. They have begun to only commit to providing a schedule a month at a time in order to maintain flexibility for youth hockey and the Ice Wolves. With that said, we have been assured our normal days and times should largely be untouched throughout the season. NMHockey will still provide a full season schedule, but players should be aware there could be some alterations. i.e. If the Ice Wolves schedule a game on a Thursday evening where we have games scheduled, the Outpost would provide a day and times to make these games up.
