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 6U & 8U through Midget 18U. 6U participate in several Cross Ice Jamborees hosted by local rinks and member organizations. 8U play Half Ice Games at the White & Blue skill levels. Squirt 10U teams play a 16 game schedule at the 'A' & 'B' levels. Older divisions do not separate by skill level. Peewee 12U teams play a 16 game schedule., Bantam 14U play an 18 game schedule & Midget 18U teams play a 20 game schedule. Our EAHC 2017-2018 hockey season runs from October, 2017 through February, 2018 with playoffs for 10U thru 18U divisions from February 21 to February 24, 2018 and Championship Finals on Sunday February 25, 2018 at SUNY Brockport.

EAHC 2017-18 Reminders - Report An Infraction & Referee Evals

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. This is requirement for ALL teams from RWB to Midget!

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 1.0 this season per game.  

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!

Message to All Coaches

Message to All Empire Coaches:

During the second week of January, Nick Tochelli, our local Supervisor of Officials sent a letter to all the local Presidents.  Hopefully by now, most of you have seen the letter (or heard about it) from your House Director or President.  It was primarily aimed at the Squirt Coaches but the message applies to all new Coaches and also to those of you with 5, 10 or even 20 years of coaching experience.  The theme is to improve team interactions with the referees before we reach a crisis point where Coaches are receiving suspensions regularly and Empire starts bringing coaches in for hearings.  ...

The rest of the message posted here has been moved to the Tab Entitled "Message to All Coaches" on the left hand side of this page.
