2019 NCWHL Invitational

The NCWHL is proud to announce that we will be hosting the first ever NCWHL Invitational from June 21-23, 2019 at Nazareth Ice Oasis in both their San Mateo and Redwood City locations. The tournament will comprise of teams from our league and from across the county. We are currently in the planning stages, but are looking forward to hosting this inaugural event this year.

As part of our on-going community service efforts, one of the main goals of this tournament will be to raise money for a local cause. This year, we’ve decided to partner with BAYS, Bay Area Young Survivors to help empower young survivors of cancer. BAYS creates support groups, activities, and opportunities for connection for people who have survived cancer. We are excited and honored to work with such a positive and inspirational group. We hope that everyone in the tournament can be proud of the impact they will be having by participating. Learn more about BAYS here:

We are also looking for volunteers! We will need help with scorekeeping, refereeing, and day-of preparations. If you are interested in helping, or have any questions about the tournament, feel free to email us at

Give Hockey a Try on February 23, 2019

Give Hockey a Try Day has been announced!

February 23, 2019, 5:30pm
at Nazareth San Mateo
2202 Bridgepointe Pkwy
San Mateo, CA 94404

Give Hockey a Try on February 23, 2019, 5:30pm:  Reserve My Spot >

The NCWHL holds “Give Hockey a Try Day” (GHATD) twice a year prior to the new season starting to give women with no playing experience an introduction to ice hockey. Absolutely zero experience in skating or hockey is needed! Full gear and on-ice coaching through light drills are provided. Participants then enjoy a fun, controlled scrimmage towards the end of the session. Cost is $25 a session.

After GHATD, participants are invited to shop at our used Gear Sale where lightly-used, donated gear is sold for a fraction of the cost of buying new. This is a great way for new players to get into the sport on a budget! Then stay and watch a Green division game. Donations of used equipment are always welcome.

Volunteers needed for GHATD

Interested in helping out at GHATD? We need lots of help from getting newbies dressed to hit the ice to setting up for the popular Gear Sale event after. Stick around to cheer on the skaters as they scrimmage for the first time ever! Come join us and introduce our favorite sport to new friends.

2018 Holiday Tournament

Dear NCWHLers,

We’re pleased to announce that we will once again be holding an NCWHL Holiday Tournament at Nazareth Ice Oasis in Redwood City  and San Mateo! Most games will be held in San Mateo with each team playing 1 game in RWC. This is a great opportunity to meet other players in the league, practice your skills in a totally fun and relaxed environment, and keep your skating fresh over the long holiday and new years break.

We’ll be fielding 4 mixed-level teams and we’ll take care of creating the teams, so all you have to do is show up and skate.

The Details

• Spots are available on a first come, first served basis, up to 52 skaters (maximum of 13 skaters per team). The tournament is available to NCWHL skaters in the Winter 2018/19 season.

• The games will be held on Friday December 28, Saturday December 29, and Sunday December 30. Each skater will get 4 games. The tentative schedule includes round robin games early evening Friday and mid-day and evening on Saturday and a consolation and championship game mid-morning on Sunday.

• We will play at the Nazareth Ice Oasis rink in Redwood City and San Mateo.  FYI, Ice Oasis is also hosting beginner and intermediate tournaments for their co-ed Rec leagues.

• Players should bring both their dark and light NCWHL jerseys.

• The cost is $140, paid directly to Ice Oasis on the day of your first game (cash, check, and credit cards accepted).

• You can designate ONE player as your tournament “buddy” and you’ll be guaranteed to be on the same team as that person.


We also need goalies (and goalies play free)! If you’re interested please indicate “Goalie” in the Google Form.

We look forward to seeing you there!
