    USA Hockey article on the health benefits of playing adult hockey.

    2020-2021 Thursday CANCELLED

    Hello Players, 

    I have been in communication with the captains about options for the Thursday night league with the updated timing. With youth hockey not able to get the ice they needed Thursdays had been pushed back, I spoke with Scott Long about this quite a bit and he did his best to try help but unfortunately they were not able to find a way to get that hour back. 

    I heard from the captains group last night that they have decided not to play under DMAHA and will be moving teams over to play in the Metro/Oakmoor adult league at Metro Ice. This is not affiliated with Des Moines Adult Hockey, if you paid online you will be receiving a refund of the league price. 

    2020-2021 Fall UPDATE

    By kr 10/14/2020, 12:30pm CDT


    We are officially on the schedule at Bucs!!
    If you have not already get yourself registered.

    Leagues will be starting Thursday Oct 29th and Sunday Nov 1st.

    There have been some time changes to help accommodate youth hockeys need for ice time. These are temporary. Please keep in mind that we would much rather have adults playing at these late times than tell parents that their children have to play that late.

    Thursdays start times 9:15, 10:30, and 11:45pm 
    Sundays start times 6:15, 7:30, 8:45, 10:00pm

    Same protocols moving forward as it was for the restart, with the addition of temp checks. Please ask players to arrive dressed if possible or dress in the parking lot before entering the rink. Players must enter on the EAST SIDE. You are allotted within the rink 15 minutes before game start and 15 minutes after.

    For right now, no locker rooms, no spectators, and NO ALCOHOL. This will be reevaluated as conditions and guidelines change. 
    The no alcohol is no negotiable right now as Bucs does not currently have a liquor license. Please be mindful and hold yourself and other players accountable.
