2019-2020 Adult Hockey Information

By AHAI, 07/13/19, 1:15PM CDT


All the information you need to join the action...

The 2019-20 hockey season is quickly approaching! The ice will be available mid- late August. Hockey is growing tremendously in the Panhandle, including the adult leagues. We had tremendous success with our first ever Adult LTP program last year. We offered 30 spots and had them filled in less than a week. This season our goal is to fill 50 spots. We currently have 25 or more on the waiting list. The ALTP link will be open for registration on Wednesday July 17th. This program is extremely popular, so if you have friends, family or buddies that are wanting to play- please have them ready to sign up so they don’t miss out!

Adding 50 new spots will increase our numbers significantly. We expect over 80 returning players. We will have a total of 130 adult players available for the leagues this season.   Our goal is to field eight B League teams, and three A League teams this season. That’s an average of around 11-12 skaters and a goalie per team.


Both leagues will start on September 15th, 2019. The last regular season games will end the weekend before Hockey Day in Texas – February 15 & 16, 2020. The playoffs will begin after Hockey Day and will end by Friday April 10th, 2020.

B League Schedule Format: We will do our very best to schedule the B league games on Sunday afternoon/ evenings. The B league will play their first game at 4:15 PM and the final game will conclude at 9:15 PM on each Sunday we have available ice. Scheduling games this way will be more practical and convenient for refs, score keepers and goalies. We may have to schedule some weekday games depending on overall ice availability.

A League Schedule Format: We decided to reduce the amount of A league teams from 4 to 3 this season to maximize the competitive spirit and increase the speed of play. The A league will play Monday- Thursday evenings depending on the weekly schedule and ice availability. Each team will rotate on a three- week schedule where they play one game/ week for two weeks and on the third week the team will have 2 games. By moving the B league to Sunday- the A league will now have earlier time slots on weeknights.

New Rules/ Regulations:

There will be no affiliate players this season. Players may only stay in the league they are assigned after registration. AHAI and the Hockey Operations Board will do their very best to fit players into the appropriate league. The ranking of players, and selection of players will be based on the following:

  • During registration there will be many questions the player is responsible for answering accurately. These questions will filter a system to rank players based on where they believe they stand, their overall experience and the preference of what league they desire to play in.
  • Previous years statistics
  • Any final decisions will be made by a selection committee comprised of team captains, and the Hockey Operations Board. The Hockey Operations board reserves the right to make any roster changes necessary, at any time if it is in the best interest of the leagues.

Here is some important information, so please read carefully and understand the timeline and deadlines for registration and other events.

Adult Drop In

The Bulls will place drop in hockey on the monthly Civic Center schedule as the availability of ice permits. Each session will cost $10 and will be cash only. We will not be pre-selling punch cards this season. The schedule will be updated monthly on Sport Engine and on the Bulls website.

We appreciate your dedication and commitment to hockey in Amarillo! We are very excited to start a new chapter, with more teams, and more players. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Program Director, Austin Sutter.
