Effective from midday on Monday 23rd of March, Hunter Ice Skating Stadium will be closed to the public, resulting in the NIHL being suspended indefinitely.

Thanks to everyone who has helped support us during this challenging period, and we look forward to welcoming you back at some point in the future.

Take care of each other, and stay safe and healthy!

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.




Registration closed.


Select 'Autumn 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 'Autumn 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.
