We are an amateur hockey team from Graz/Austria, founded in 1997 and participating in the National-Hockey-League (http://nhl-graz.com/) since then. More than "success", "sports and fun" is our main goal. In 2015, for the second time, we'll organize the Moosecup-hobby-icehockey-tournament, which we try to make again as international as possible.
We are an amateur hockey team (www.hckaarle.com) from Kokkola/Finland. We founded in 2003.
We practice twice a week during beginning of august - end of april.
Players age are between 20-50+.
The BeerBoys are founded in 2015.
It is very interesting, that a part of the Team is from Augsburg, the other one from Erfurt. The distance between these Citys is 400km. But we met the first Time in Füssen in a Hockey Camp.
From that Time, we had the Dream to build up a new Team together. To complete the Team, a few players joined, who met at a testimonial match of an old Teammate.
We all share the passion for hockey! But only a few of us learned to play as a kid, most started as an adult. Right now we all play in different Teams in different Hobby-Leagues or didn't play for years.
We all enjoy to play Hockey an want to have a good time together with friends. Our goal is to keep away from injurys. But if we play smart, it would be nice too. It's not easy to play smart, because we never played together before. However we don't want to be keept in mind just by drinking beer!
We want to be an attractive Team, which is keept in mind by a few tricks and gimmicks.
Founded in ca. 1990 as part of the Braunschweig Technical College sports and soon had four teams at different levels. After the closing of the local ice stadium, the team moved to Wolfsburg and are now part of the Hannover Hobby League EEHL (http://eishockeyhannoverhobbyliga.de). At the moment we are a team of 17 players and 4 goalies.
Founded in 1987 UEC Leisach played on a football field whichwas flooded with water to get a rather rough iced surface. 1990 two guys created a machine for preparing better ice out of an old VW Golf. The following years the team won several local championships and moved up the ladder to today’s league, Kärntner Liga Division 2.
The foundation of Rozmár JSE (Walrus hockey club) happened in 2012, but we have been playing together since around 2009-10. Our home is in Jégpalota in Budapest (Hungary). This is where we practice and have our home games. We are hockey-loving amateurs with no professional background and our ice is open for anyone to join and try this brilliant game!
Since: more than 30 Years
For more than thirty years in Belgrade there is a group of enthusiasts in hockey who call themselves "Peg Legs" and that in this game you enjoy at least twice a week on board an ice hall "Pioneer".
This association, which today has more than 40 members, consisting of hockey fans, former players, and a handful of foreigners / diplomats who are temporarily staying in our city. All of them in the late evening appointments brings the love of "the fastest team sport in the world" and the unique atmosphere that accompanies it.
In order to establish better contacts with similar clubs in other countries and to engage more actively in the already existing competition increasingly popular amateur hockey, "Peg Legs" in 2005 and officially registered as a hockey club "DN Belgrade".
We can proudly say that we are in a relatively short period of time achieved a great deal. In addition to intensive cooperation with similar associations from Novi Sad and Subotica, we have many contacts with teams from other countries and played a large number of international matches. We are particularly proud of the successful organization of the traditional international tournament in amateur ice hockey "Wooden Legs - McLennan Cup", who has entered the second decade of its existence.
We are very pleased that our activities contributed to this attractive sport gets more media attention, and we hope that this will affect its popularization in our country.
Spišská Nová Ves, Slovakia
Team SKV Aligators (http://www.skvaligators.sk) was founded in 2008 when a group of former HK Spišská Nová Ves players and their enthusiastic friends decided to establish an amateur hockey club. Our motivation was to play at an amateur level and enjoy this beautiful sport. We joined the SAHL Spišská hobby league (http://sahl.webnode.sk) in 2013/14 and even won it.
Our team turned "professional" in 1995 :o), which means that we play ice hockey in towns Weißwasser, Jonsdorf, Dresden, Nieksy und Rumburk (CZ). Before that we`d played on frozen lakes and ponds. We play on a weekly basis and players have left us, new ones have followed. Since 2007 we've joined a hobby league with six teams from the region Eastern Saxony.
With the Landskron Brewery Görlitz as the main sponsor, we've been champions in the first two years, 2nd, 3rd and 4th the following years - but it doesn't matter - we're having fun and we're a great team! Our picture is from April 2014.
