Beginning today, 3/16, ALL remaining games are cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID 19. The board tried to work with the Bay Center to come up with alternatives but in the end, the board voted to end the season effective today 3/16 to fall in line with national USA Hockey, CDC and SPHL recommendations. This outcome isn't what any of us wanted but as always the ECIHL is committed to keeping player safety the top priority.

The ECIHL is a USA HOCKEY affiliated adult league (18+) serving the entire Emerald Coast Area (Mississippi to Panama City, FL).  We have all skill levels from beginner on up.  ALL PLAYERS must have a current USA HOCKEY (covering fall/spring season) membership to play.  

Only skaters with approved jerseys will be allowed on the ice unless given specific permission by the Board.  

The ECIHL comprises of 2 divisions, C league and B league.  Those who are looking for a more casual style of play can sign up for C league which is reserved for players new to the game or more skilled players* who want to help others improve. Otherwise, sign up and come out for the B league open skates at the start of the season and you'll be assigned a team by skill level*.  If you have any questions please email us at



*the ECIHL board reserves the right to move players between B/C league so a min/max skill level will be monitored and enforced in both leagues.

Check Online Schedule and Emails Frequently

Members of ECIHL

We try to keep the schedule as stable as possible, but last minute changes and cancellations do occur.  The only way for us to send out mass notification is through email.  Sending text messages to everyone is NOT an option. 

We highly encourage you to check the online schedule/calendar and the email account you used to register for the ECIHL, especially on the evenings of games.  We send out emails within minutes of being notified of a cancellation and follow up with changes to  the calendar as soon as possible.  

Thanks for your understanding and patience.
