Welcome to EAHC′s home on the web!
Welcome to the Empire Amateur Hockey Conference website. Remember that our site is continuously evolving and we will add to it over time. Here, you'll be able to get news, information, schedules, rosters, game results, directions and much more. Check back frequently for the latest information about our conference. Members of the EAHC Board who supervise this league can be found on the "Contacts" page on the left hand side of this page.

This year the EAHC will manage and supervise league play for approximately 100 youth hockey teams in the greater Rochester area. Teams range from RWB (Red, White & Blue formerly known as Mites) through Midgets, at the 'A' & 'B' (Squirt & PW) and Mixed (Bantam/Midget) local levels. Our EAHC 2016-2017 hockey season runs from October, 2016 through February, 2017 with playoffs from February 14 to February 23, 2017 and Championship Finals on February 25 & 26, 2017.

EAHC 2016-17 Reminders

Referee Evaluations REMINDERThe Head Coach (or his/her designee) must fill out a referee evaluation for every game via the online form located on the Forms Menu at the top of this website. No team official will be permitted to complain about referees.  All feedback, both positive and negative, should be entered into a Referee Evaluation Form.  Remember: your positive feedback is as valuable as your negative feedback as both give RIHOA important information about referee capabilities. 

RWB Schedules are Posted on the RWB Team Websites and Commissioners are maintaining the schedules per EAHC Rules.

Fair Play Points:  Each Fair Play Point is worth 0.5 this season per game.  If penalty minute averages go up in 2016-17, EAHC may restore the full point for 2017-18 season.  Team penalty minute averages were down significantly in 2014-15 largely due to this incentive.

Game Misconduct, 5 Minute Major & Match Penalty Reporting:  All Game Misconducts, 5 Minute Majors and Match Penalties incurred in EAHC Regular Season & Playoff Games, Scrimmage Games and Tournament Games must be reported via the "Infraction Reporting Form" located off the Forms tab at the top of this website.  This is to ensure that all Progressive Suspensions under USA Hockey Rules 411 and 615 are served.  DO NOT report 2+10 Aggressive Play Penalties!

Travel Midget Request to Play on an Empire Midget Team

The Empire Conference is pleased to announce that it will continue to offer the opportunity for Midget Travel Players to petition the EAHC/Empire Conference for permission to play on a Empire Midget Team.  This opportunity is intended for those Midget players who have no High School Varsity or JV team to play for after the split season Midget season is over in early November.  

Midget players who are cut from a High School team or their school district/school does not offer a High School team, and their Midget Travel season is completed may petition Empire by filling out the Form located under the Forms tab at the top of the EAHC Home page above.  In order to be eligible to play for the EAHC Midget Team, your Midget Travel Season must be completed (i.e. all league, scrimmage & tournament games finished).

Once the form is filled out, reviewed by EAHC Board (usually by email), and Midget team openings determined, you will be notified of the EAHC Midget team you have been assigned to.  We try to assign players to their 1st choice team but players should realize that EAHC will steer players to teams that have less than 17 players first rather than trying to fill 1 or 2 spots on your preferred team.  Note that you will be required to obtain a Release if you are changing organizations and pay the fees set by the organization of the team you are assigned to.

Each EAHC Midget Team is limited to a MAXIMUM of 2 Petitioned Midget Travel Players for the 2016-17 Season. Each Midget Team is limited to 18 skaters & 2 Goalies and may not have room to add petitioned Midget Travel players.

If you have any questions, please contact the Empire Representative for the organization you are currently playing for.
