  PIHL Girls’ High School Hockey
Girls’ Division

We are excited with the interest shown over the past several weeks in the Girls’ High School Hockey League.  We can now move forward to the next step with our plans to begin play in Mid-April 2022.

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL) is NOW accepting registration.


Girls currently enrolled in grades 9-12 during the 2021-2022 academic school year. We will follow the PIHL and USA Hockey guidelines for participation in Varsity High School hockey. Student athletes must also meet their respective school’s requirements to participate in extracurricular activities. There are no play-up options.


Game jersey and socks are included in the fee. The player may wear any color pant, shell, helmet, and gloves.


Regular season games will begin with a kickoff event in Mid-April 2022 and conclude with the PIHL Girls’ Division Championship game the second week of June 2022.


Game Format:

The games will consist of three 17-minute periods.


Coaches shall be qualified according to the guidelines established by the League and shall follow all USA Hockey and/or Mid-American District coaching requirements.

Team Selection: 

Teams will be formed based on school districts, and school districts in the same geographic location as much as possible. Individual players skill level will also be considered when forming teams.


Based on demand and limited roster spots available, tryouts will be held prior to the start of the season.  All players not placed on a team will receive a full refund.


We anticipate that the individual costs will be no more than $700.00 per player. Fee includes the following: practices, regular season games, and playoffs. Jerseys and socks are also included. Fee total will be dependent upon the final number of girls who are registered with deposits. Number of teams required, and ice slots are all dependent upon the number of registered players.



A refundable $100.00 deposit is required, along with your completed registration form to register. Please make checks payable to: PIHL


              All players must mail the completed registration form along with a
               refundable deposit of $100.00 to the following:
