The parking lot and street games are long gone, but the passion and desire to play competitive hockey resides in our hearts and minds.., now it's just played through aging, sore, and over-weight bodies.
"In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years."

Over-30 Draft 2018-19:
The Over-30 League annual draft is now completed. The theme for this year's draft will be "new beginnings," and going back to an old school draft format. ALL players will be drafted individually; previous player combinations from year's past will not be in effect. Thus, if you got used to your personal "binky" linemate, that is no longer the case with this year's draft. This year, you will find yourself playing against linemates from previous years teams. The intention is to make this year's draft more balanced for all the teams by spreading the talent, age, speed and chemistry around.
Team captains will be notified of their team rosters during the middle of August, after which all players will be contacted by their respective team captains with further details.
Team captains for this year are:
Keeping in line with this "new beginings" theme, the Over-30 league will also be going back to the past to provide team shirts similar to what have been provided from a few year's back. The league has a new local shirt supplier and the quality, style and most importantly material will be a major improvement from last year's shirts.
League Website updates:
League website updates will be ongoing throughout the summer. We expect to have updates posted to the Career All-time stats leaders webpage sometime in late August.
In preparation of starting the new season on September 8, all related webpages will be updated the week prior, including the schedule and team rosters webpages.
Pink Stick Bag Challenger announcement:
In addition, during the week prior to September 8, the new Pink Stick Bag Challenger will be announced. This player will be the lucky number 13th player nominated for this challenge. Time will tell whether the added pressure of being number 13 on the list of challengers will result in another "failed" attempt!
Behind the scenes efforts gratitude:
As Director, I would personally like to thank all the "behind-the-scenes" individuals whose volunteered time and hard work each year in planning for the upcoming seasons continues to be seamless and results in the finished product that you see which is the Over-30 League. The Over-30 League owes a big part of its success to these individuals listed below.
Keep checking back onto the Home webpage of the website for further updates throughout the summer. Don't worry, we won't say anything (right now) about getting back into playing shape..........................that message and fair warning will come soon enough!
