Central Coast In-House League (CCIHL) is facilitated by Erina Ice Arena for local players. 

We run two annual in-house league competitions, with the winter season running April-September, and summer October-March.

We have six teams: Strangebrew, Kraken, Silberbacks, Brewers, Phoenix, and Griffins. Management will advise as to when the required registrations are open, with teams being drafted from the number of registrations received.

Game Guidelines:

1. Full protective gear required including full cage for u18 and women. Over 18 men must at least wear a visor. All skaters under 18 must wear a neck/throat protector. Failure to wear full equipment will enforce the following:

  • 1st offence – warning
  • 2nd offence – 10-minute misconduct
  • 3rd offence – game misconduct


Any other protective measures (e.g., strapping tape) that are necessary for each skater must be used to minimise any injury during the game.

2. Each player is allowed to play on ONE team only during each season. If a team is playing with 5 or less players, their game will automatically forfeit game points, however game may go ahead. Players must have played a minimum of 50% of the seasons games to be eligible to play in the finals.

3. Goalies may assist as goalie for another team upon CCIHL management approval.

4. Deliberate body checking is not permitted and will result in a penalty determined by the referee.

  • 2nd period: 15min
  • 3rd period: 20min


8. Ties will be determined by a shootout with the following format:

  • Best of 3 (Three players from each team to participate)
  • If score is still tied, then shootout goes into sudden death

9. Ties in the finals will be determined by a 5 minute, 3v3 ‘Sudden Death’ overtime period. If the score is still tied, then the tie will be determined by a shootout in the same format as regular season shootouts: all players eligible for the shootout must take a turn before a player takes a second shot.

10. An automatic one game suspension will be enforced if a player receives a game misconduct in the last 1⁄2 of the 3rd period
