League Policies & Rules

NCWHL Charter

The Northern California Women's Hockey League, or NCWHL, is a recreational ice hockey league formed with the following objectives:

  • To provide women of all abilities a place to play ice hockey with and against other women.
  • To promote women's ice hockey in the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • To promote good sportsmanship.

One of the NCWHL's main charters is for the game of hockey to be played more for the fun of playing than to emphasize winning. Good sportsmanship is expected at all times. Keep in mind that at all times each player represents the NCWHL and in that respect they should keep the league objectives in mind when participating in league events.
