Southwest Ball Hockey has been providing a fast action no checking league for children from our neighboring communities since 1971. Southwest Ball Hockey is a non-profit, state-chartered corporation totally devoted to the enjoyment of this unique brand of Dek/ball hockey for children ages 5 to 15. This game is a fast action, no checking league and is played on a special type of rink where the players play in gym shoes not ice skates or roller blades.  Each player must play a minimum of 1/3 of each game. The players must also all wear helmets with face guards, shin guards, elbow pads and hockey gloves. In every division, good sportsmanship is encouraged in all our players.

Player Registration Cost**:

 Instructional Division - Ages 6 and Under (as of Dec 31, 2024) - $75.00**
 Minor Division - Ages 7, 8 and 9 (as of Dec 31, 2024) - $100.00 **
Junior Division - Ages 10, 11, 12 (as of Dec 31, 2024) - $100.00 **
Senior Division - Ages 13, 14, 15 (as of Dec 31, 2024) - $100.00 **


  • There is a MANDATORY $50.00 fundraiser per FAMILY. The cost of player registration DOES NOT include the fundraiser; however, this additional fee will also be due at the time of registration.
  • We also require each family to work one - 3hr shift in our concession stand during the season. A $100.00 refundable check will be collected at the rink prior to the start of the season. (No cash or credit card will be accepted) Once your hours are completed your check will be returned to you.
  • There will be a $30.00 non-refundable fee for anyone that cancels their registration

Southwest Ball Hockey

Fast action, no checking Southwest Ball Hockey has been providing for children from our neighboring communities since 1971 by Boys Field Hockey, Inc. Boys Field Hockey, Inc., is a non-profit, state chartered corporation totally devoted to the enjoyment of this unique brand of Dek/ball hockey for children ages 5 to 15.

Southwest Ball Hockey is made up entirely of volunteers with elections held for all positions every March. We urge parents and any concerned adult to get involved. We have positions available such as Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Paid Referees, Fund Raiser Committees, Rules Committees, Rink Maintenance, Team Mother, and Grievance Board.

We have 2 seasons: Winter and Summer. The Winter season consists of 14-16 games. The season begins in November and ends in April. The summer league starts in July and runs through August. All games are played outside in tennis/gym shoes.

Usually, two games are played per week per team. All games are played on weekday evenings and Sunday's.  During the games, each player must play a minimum of 1/3 of the game. The players all wear helmets with face guards, shin guards, elbow pads and hockey gloves. In every division, good sportsmanship is encouraged in all our players. Continuing with this theory, there is also a Grievance Board made up of concerned parents to field complaints or concerns from the parents of our players.

Each division's season ends with the President's Cup Playoffs and the entire winter program ends with an Awards Banquet made up of all players from each division.
