The League was founded in 1988 and started games in April of 1989. They have always played games at the Hobomock Arena in Pembroke, Mass only.
The South Coastal Men’s Hockey League Inc. operates 6 teams starting in 2015. After 27 years of operation we turned the other levels of play over to other organizations. Those leagues still exist at Hobomock arena.
.It should be considered a “B to C” level of competition with most players over age 50. We have no highly skilled or ex-professional players in our league.
This league wears WHL (World Hockey Association) uniforms.
The fall season starts in September and runs to December. The winter season begins in early January and goes to May. Games will be played in the following time slots only: Sunday nights at 6:40, 7:50, and 9:00. With 14 to 15 regular season games are played with up to 17 games with playoffs... All games are played on Sunday evenings only. Teams rotate through all time slots so you will play games in all time slots evenly throughout the season.
Games feature: 2 Referees; 1 Timekeeper; Three 12 minute stop time periods (as time and other rules allow); 1:30 penalties; weekly league and individual stats. The league has staff on hand for cleaning of locker rooms and equipment purposes and provides pucks and extensive uniform services (see SCHL Uniform story) League management is on site for all games to answer any questions or work with/covers for paid staff.

There are generally very limited spots available for new players (less than a 3% turnover each year). Over 70% of the members have played for over 10 consecutive years. We have over 40 players that have played for over 20 years. Tryouts are held before each session to determine the ability level of players who join as individuals. We will try to keep players together with friends who travel together where it can be done keeping parity in mind. A one-time uniform cost is necessary for new players, which covers numbered and lettered home and away jerseys and socks. Players who are traded from team to team by the league for parity reasons receive new uniforms for that team at no charge. Black hockey pants are also required along with helmets and full face cages. Only black helmets allowed.
