Dear Players

We are thrilled to announce the return of the SOUTH CHINA SHARKS to the CIHL!

Registration for the upcoming 2023-2024 CIHL season is now open and we invite you to secure your spot. As Hong Kong's premier ice hockey league, we are entering our 13th season, with league games held at Discovery Bay, boasting the best FULL-SIZE ice rink in Hong Kong. Additionally, we will also be playing games in Shenzhen (xxxxx).

For those interested, this season presents an exciting opportunity to participate in both leagues. Alongside the CIHL, Hong Kong's top non-contact league SCIHL Division 1 will also take place at the DB Ice Rink, allowing players to enjoy the experience of playing in two leagues at the same ice rink.

We would like to inform you that the management of equipment lockers falls under the responsibility of the DB Ice Rink. If you are interested in renting a locker for the 2023-2024 season, please reach out to the rink directly. Contact details for DB lockers are as follows:

Name: Scott Bhalla – Ice Hockey
Event Coordinator Email: [email protected]

Priority registration for returning CIHL and SCIHL players is open until August 1. Registration will then be open to the public starting on August 1. To show our appreciation, we are offering an early bird promotion. Register before August 1 to receive a HK$500 voucher for Warrior equipment at the CHG Hockey Shop, along with 2 free skate sharpening sessions (voucher expires April 1, 2024, and is not redeemable for cash).

We look forward to your participation in another exciting season of the CIHL!
