Welcome to an exciting and unique brand of adult recreational hockey for players of all skill levels.
Hockey Co. of Michigan was established in 2005 with the idea of continuing a long standing tradition of adult hockey
that started over 55 years ago at the Oak Park ice arena.
Hockey Co. of Michigan will strive to create a variety of exciting seasonal adult programs that are founded on the emphasized principles of fair play, parity among teams, sportsmanship, camaraderie and safety.
THE DRAFT CONCEPT
The idea of the draft concept symbolizes these principles.
Our player rating system ensures team parity as well as providing a strong base for supporting our sportsmanship and camaraderie principles. Each year, new teamsare created from the total pool of players, ensuring you will get to know (and play with) most of the other players in the league,
Hockey Company of Michigan plays a 45 game fall/winter season, followed by a 2 best of 3 game elimination playoff series and a best of 5 for the HCOMI CUP!
No long delays between games (except potentially during the December Holiday season & SuperBowl Sunday).
6 teams (12 players + 1 Goalie) each team is comprised of intermediate to advanced level players.
Players that have previously played some type of organized or competitive hockey
This division is for the player that has skill and speed but still plays for fun and is still competitive.
This will be a draft style league, player pairing is not guaranteed, but efforts will be made to pair you with a requested player.
