In 2009, the Emerald Coast Ice Hockey League (ECIHL) was formed to provide a positive atmosphere targeting active duty military, veterans as well as civilians in the area to help maintain a healthy lifestyle playing a sport unique to the area and/or that they grew up playing prior to moving to the Emerald Coast. Also, the ECIHL hopes to grow interest and participation in adult ice hockey in Escambia and surrounding counties through the development of all players, regardless of skill level, in an organized and respectful environment. The North Florida area near Pensacola has had recreational hockey in the Pensacola Civic Center for nearly 20 years and our league takes pride in keeping the tradition moving forward and growing the hockey in the South!
There are 2 levels of Hockey offered in the ECIHL, depending on your desire for competitive or recreational level play. The Board reserves the right to ask a player to play up to B or down to Rec(C) for safety reasons.
