National Veterans Hockey League
National Veterans Hockey League is dedicated to United States Military Veterans who have served our country and love the sport of ice hockey. While some of our participants played hockey prior to joining the military, many are now trying it for the first time.
To be eligible for the National Veterans Hockey League, members must be serving or served as a member of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard). Members are required to have been discharged under honorable or general conditions.
There are currently 3 leagues available as part of the NVHL.
The National Veterans Hockey League, a 501(c)(3), has been organized to operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, for US Military Veterans.
The Program’s mission is to organize and administer an ice hockey program that provides a recreational, therapeutic, and educational experience.
The program educates, trains, motivates, and encourages the formation of "Veteran Hockey Programs” locally and nationally while encouraging individuals who have physical disabilities incurred during service to the United States to participate in the sport of ice hockey in an environment that is adapted to the level of their ability.
The National Veterans Hockey League is staffed by volunteers, on-ice and off-ice mentors who do not receive any compensation, stipend or other remuneration for their time.
