The Newcastle inhouse hockey league (NIHL) is the first step in playing competitive ice hockey in Newcastle. The senior competition is open to ages 14+. Players who are interested in joining the in-house leagues are drafted into divisions and teams based on their playing experience. Full protective equipment is required. We offer three senior in-house competitions year round, being autumn, winter & summer.




Select 'Summer Registration' - this will take you through the required registration forms we need from you, and will ask for a payment to secure a playing position on a team.

Select 'Summer Installment' - this will become live at the midpoint of the season and will ask for an installment fee. Paying this will cover your remaining costs for the competition. Please be aware that paying by installments will result in higher total league fees.


For all updates, rules, statistics, standings, scheduling & team information, please visit our league website @ (*this is for the senior competitions only).
