The Shanghai Hockey Club is a volunteer organization run by ice hockey addicts who have made their mark on Shanghai history by introducing the sport here. We are open to all players and all skill levels and currently have players as per below:
During the season we play 3 times per week with games on Friday and Saturday nights. Shinny sessions are during the week and are 1.5 hours, league games are 1 hour long. Please refer to the "Pick-up" tab above for details on timing and current location. Feel free to drop in anytime!
Shinny fees are approximately 3000RMB for a full year (Sept-May) or 180RMB per drop-in session.
League fees are approximately 3400RMB for a 24 game season including jersey, plenty of hydration, transportation, and the playoffs. There are only two times each year to join the league, the September draft and the January draft, please refer to the "League" tab above for details.
The group started in 2004 when Swiss DJ Markus Benz placed an ad in a local magazine looking for others to take advantage of a new seasonal rink built over the Hongkou swimming pool. A large group quickly converged, their enthusiasm barely crippled by the lack of boards, glass, curved corners, a roof, or the presence of a three meter diameter post in the middle of one team's defensive zone.
We thought the day would never come, but we now play in full-sized year-round professional quality rink in Songjiang, complete with showers and equipment storage.
Remember: have fun and respect other players and the effort put in by all the volunteers involved in the organization.
