    Welcome to the Women's Central Hockey League!

    Player Registration

    Individual registration is now open - link is below and will also be emailed to the team reps. We will be closing the registration on October 3rd. This will allow us time to validate registrations with rosters. 

    It is the responsibility of the teams to ensure that all players are registered prior to the first league game of the season. Any players not registered by then will not be allowed to skate, and/or the game will count as a forfeit if the scoresheet contains unregistered players.

    Note: In following years when a digital scoresheet system is implemented, this will eliminate the need for individual player registration, as rosters will be able to be imported directly from the USA Hockey portal using the Team ID. In the meantime, for this season, we will require this so that we can track stats and player eligibility for playoffs. 

    League Fees

    League fees for the season are $375 per team, and playoff fees will be $450 for teams that make it to the playoffs. These will be due by October 1st.

    In a world where women's divisions are tacked onto men's tournaments as an afterthought, the Chicago Blackhawks worked with the WCHL to host a women-only tournament this summer in Chicago.
