Division Coordinator: Amanda Anderson
  • The Green Division is the entry point to the NCWHL, combining beginning players with those that have acquired basic skills.
  • The Green division has no minimum requirements. Evaluation of skill does not occur. The skill set of a Green player is any player who does not meet the criteria for the Red Division.
  • Each team is assigned a Coach who will help with individual player and team development.
  • The season consists of pre-game learning sessions, games and practices. Additional pickup and subbing opportunities may be available dependent on ice availability.
  • The Green Division is a great place to learn how to play hockey in a fun, encouraging environment while also offering a competitive environment for basic level skaters to build upon their skills.

Changing Divisions

Hockey requires drills, conditioning and practice to improve ability and leg strength needed to advance into a new division. The NCWHL recommends skating more than once a week to improve your chance of succeeding in division evaluations.

Recommended steps to improve skills
  • Attend all Green practices.
  • Play in every game.
  • Seek subbing opportunities in your division and the level above (subject to division sizes).
  • Speak with your coaches about what skills need work.
  • Skate at public ice sessions and stick times (sometimes called Gretzky Hour).
  • Attend skating and shooting clinics.

Placements & Evaluations are held prior to each new season. This is the only method for placement into a higher division.
