HERITAGE HOCKEY LEAGUE
The Heritage Hockey League (HHL) was established in 1981 in the City of Calgary when six original member teams pooled their ice bookings in order to form a new league. The league has, since it's inception, concentrated on providing a very competitive level of adult recreational hockey. The league has enjoyed tremendous growth over the years and is currently made up of 30 member teams playing within 4 distinct divisions. Over half the member teams currently in the league have been member teams for ten years or more. The league uses (primarily) prime-time ice bookings at several arenas within the City of Calgary.
This division offers our league's highest level of combined team skill.
Player members normally have hockey backgrounds which include Junior A-B or College/University hockey experience. It is the league's goal to maintain this division as Calgary's best senior mens hockey division in order to offer fast, skilled hockey to player members over 21 years of age.
Currently composed of six member teams this division offers a slightly lower level of competition to player members over 21 years of age. Player members normally have hockey backgrounds which include Midget, Junior B, and/or College level experience.
Formed in 1990, this division is restricted to player members of a minimum age of 35.
Many member teams have come from the league's other divisions after many years of play. The formation of this division has allowed many player members to continue playing competitive hockey. Each division consists of 8 or 9 teams.
Added in 2012, the 35B division offers a slightly lower level of competition to player members over 35 years of age. Player members normally have hockey backgrounds which include Midget, Junior B, and/or College level experience.
