The fun is getting closer! On Saturday, November 16 at 4:30pm the NCHL has reserved the ice for a broomball game! Bring your tennis shoes and jacket and get ready to play – everyone welcome! Adults, kids, friends, whoever! Adults getting in on NCHL action for once – how fun!

We have reserved seats at the SF Bulls game at 7:15pm.

$12.50 covers it all. It would be fun to get a big game going, so I hope many of you can make it.

If you would like me to reserve your family and/or friends seats, please let me know at mbdaveevan@yahoo.com

Or catch me at the rink.

Get your game on.

Hi all,

There will be an open skate offered on Tuesday’s from 5:00 – 6:30 for the remainder of the Fall season. This open skate is for all levels.

Any questions, please contact info@coastsiderollerhockey.com.

Join us this Friday at 5:30-7:30pm for practice (all age groups) or Saturday afternoon from 3:00-5:00pm, and to sign up for Fall Hockey. Then join us on Sunday for games:

-11:00am-12:30pm for Squirt/PeeWee players
-12:30pm- 2:00pm forPeeWee/Bantam players
Please click here for online registration.
Fall Hockey offers a more relaxed atmosphere to try the sport of roller hockey. No gear? No problem! We have recently restocked with new and used gear that can be used while your player participates in the NCHL. Scholarships and multi-player discounts are available. Coaches are working to set the practice schedules; let us know if you’re able to help out on evenings or weekends.

BIG NEWS: Our new scoreboard has been delivered! But it’s not installed yet, as it’s way heavier than we anticipated. Please contact us at info if you are able to help create a structure that can secure the 600-pound unit atop our Gear Shed.

A reminder that you’re invited to play in our Adult Pickup Puck sessions every Saturday morning, from 10:00am-noon, our popular Adult Pickup Puck (for high school-age players and up)

Congratulations to our 2013 NCHL Champions:

Bantam: B1-Boy Scout Troop 255, coached by Mike Hovermale

PeeWee: B1-Christine Maren Salon, coached by Dirk Krieger

Squirt: S3-Maguire Tree Care, coached by Dirk Krieger

Big upsets in the semifinals of the PeeWee and Squirt divisions, though form held in the finals — all #2 seeds won. (FYI, the NCHL is not a “keeper league,” so you don’t have to worry about a Dirk Krieger dynasty.) Please email photos suitable for posting on our NCHL website.

Game results will be posted online at the HMB Review, which had a great front cover photo from Championship Sunday action. Here’s the link to prior games:

This Sunday is Sharks Sticker Day! We’ll have small Sharks temporary tattoos for all players; get your sticker from your coach on Sunday.

Wish List items: If anyone has a couple of plastic chairs, the kind we use at the Scorer’s Table, it’d be great if you could donate them for use at the Scorer’s Table. We could also use a pop-up tent for the barbecue, and a hot water carafe for the Flying Puck Cafe. Always in demand at the BGC Rink: ACE Hardware and Safeway gift cards. We’ll make sure crack PA announcing staff recognizes your contributions! (And provides you with a donation receipt.)

In our Skills competition, Robyn Souza won the Chuck-A-Puck contest in Week 5, and Vic Gallant was the first successful Six Shooter contestant to score all 6 goals, winning a SF Giants Bobbleheads, 2013 Giants calendar, Player Meal Deal, Snack Buck and more.

July-16 PeeWee 3 vs PeeWee 1 Tuesday, 5:00pm start

If your team is listed as opening the rink, that entails arriving by roughly 9:15am and blowing or sweeping the rink, setting up tents and tables, and helping get the Snack Shack ready to open (putting out gear, putting out trash cans and recycling, etc.). There is absolutely no reason (other than inclement weather) why the first Squirt game should not start promptly at 10am. Thanks for everyone’s cooperation!

Boys and Girls Club of the Coastside – Board Member

The NCHL is a unit of the non-profit Coastside Youth Association, in association with the Boys and Girls Club of the Coastside.

Excitement abounds as teams jockey for hockey playoff position. A full slate of SEVEN games again this Sunday, after two exciting overtime games last weekend.

GET YOUR NCHL FLYING PUCK COFFEE BAGS: This week we continue the sale of the NCHL’s very own Flying Puck Coffee in 12-ounce bags! The coffee is certified organic, purchased under the free trade agreement, and roasted locally in HMB. The 12oz bags of organic coffee are $13 each. We’re offering two types of coffee: Breakfast Blend & Decaf. What a treat! From Outlands Java, the coffee is locally roasted, organic, purchased under free trade agreement and bird-friendly to boot! Buy it at the Snack Shack this Sunday!

Donate through Employer Matching Funds! Did you know that many employers will provide matching funds to nonprofit organizations when their employees make contributions? The NCHL has received a few donations from employers of NCHL members, so please check with your organization to see if you can donate through employer matching funds — on a budget as lean as ours, every dollar helps!

The NCHL has spawned high school players, college players and even players drafted by NHL teams. But now we can boast of a national champion! NCHL foreign correspondent Kevin Lansing wrote that former NCHL and HMB Cougars player Krister Lansing recorded an assist as the Vika Vipers’ defeated the RIL Blinders by a score of 9-2 in the championship of the Oslo league (the only inline hockey league in all of Norway). Players reportedly celebrated in the locker-room declaring themselves "Norsk inline hockey vinnere" (Norwegian inline hockey champions!)! http://inlinehockey.no/

In our Skills competition, Darren Souza won the Chuck-A-Puck contest in Week 4, and Dirk Krieger and Bill Baron took home Chuck-A-Puck honors in Week 5.

Michelle deBeer and Tom Roman won the Six Shooter contest with 4 goals each.
