Anchorage Women's Hockey League

2019-20 AWHL Season Registration


Message from the President

The Mission of the Anchorage Women's Hockey League is bringing women of all skill levels together to play hockey in a fun, organized and supportive atmosphere!

The Board of Directors is excited to bring you AWHL’s 30th season of organized hockey for women in Anchorage! Our vision is that each player who skates off each AWHL sheet of ice has a fuller heart, fitter body, and richer circle of friends than when she skated on.  The board brings this vision to you by providing a league that strives for balanced play at each level, good stewardship of its membership fees, and robust teams filled with the most fun hockey players in town!

In that vein, we are starting this season off by the reducing the 2019-2020 registration fees as follows:

•Fees for individual players registering for an AWHL league-run team in Hunter (rec) and Denali (comp) is reduced to $375.   Goalies pay half price.  These discounted fees are good for those registering by AUGUST 16.  After that, season fees go back to $400 a player/$200 for goalies.

•Fees for registering as whole teams are reduced to $5,600 in Hunter (rec), Foraker (intermediate), and Denali (comp).

•Fees for individual players registering for a SECOND (or third or more!) AWHL formed team in Hunter and/or Denali are reduced by 30% translating to about $263 for the season. 

And believe us, we aren’t stopping there! Stay tuned for some really cool things that we are lining up for women who play or want to play hockey!

About the AWHL League Tiers:

AWHL’s goal is to have between four and six teams in each of three divisions: Hunter (recreational) Foraker (competitive) and Denali (highly competitive)

  • HUNTER is for beginners as well as experienced players who want a more recreational style of hockey. Every year Hunter teams welcome new players who have never even had on hockey skates.  More advanced players may play in the Hunter level as mentors to those with less experience, but are expected to practice exceptional sportsmanship.
  • FORAKER players are generally more advanced skaters who have a good understanding of the game and want to play a more competitive style of hockey. Foraker teams enter the league as a team and players are rostered by that team’s manager.
  • DENALI players tend to be advanced skaters who want to play fast, highly competitive games, and may have had comp and/or college level coaching. The goal of this division is to attract and support the most skilled female hockey athletes and provide a fun, supportive environment for the highest level of games in Anchorage. 


Before diving into the AWHL registration form,  there are a few prep steps that will make the process go quickly!


ALL adult hockey players and coaches are required to register with USA Hockey for the 2019-20 season.  USAH fees are $46 (+ $9 Alaska affiliate fee) and include some basic injury insurance coverage and other benefits.    

If you have already registered with USAH for the NEW season, copy your 14 character code and prepare to paste it.

*Some members have been getting an 'invalid data' error message after entering their new USAH code.  We are trying to get to the bottom of this.  Some have managed to eventually get beyond this by refreshing their browser or quitting their browser and relaunching it.   Last, but not least, some have finally had success by just giving it time - maybe 12 hours or so.  Technology!  email us if this happens to you:
