The complete schedule and results can be found by using the SCHEDULE/RESULTS tab at the top of the page.  

UPDATE for 2020-2021 Season (9/22/2020):

  • League games will begin on Friday/Saturday October 16th and 17th, 2020.  Schedule to be released soon.
  • Locker room access is questionable.  Last info from Tammy stated that players may have to arrive and depart the facility dressed.  

  • All temps will be taken before entry.  

  • No spectators permitted.

  • Maximum building capacity is 25 people.  By my calculations, that only allows for two teams of 10 skaters, 2 goalies, 2 referees and a scorekeeper.  Unsure if any rink staff is also counted into that figure.  But almost certainly, team rosters will have to be trimmed.  If there are a lot more skaters on your team than 10, you will likely need to consider starting a second team.  
  • Feel free to share.

 

Dave Stamm and Nelson Gingerich with Mike Barrick

Hockey fans, we would like to introduce you to Mr. Michael Barrick.

 

In 1970 Mike brought his team, the Hampden Leafs, to the Sunbury ice rink. They used the facility to practice and play pick-up games.

 

Mike saw the the potential of the facility and how it could promote the sport of ice hockey.

 

Through his vision and tireless efforts, in 1973 the Susquehanna Valley Hockey League was established and the first season of league play began.

 

Mike was not only instrumental in the formation of the SVHL, he is the one who named it.

 

47 years after Mike first stepped on the ice here at Sunbury, the league continues to thrive, the caliber of play has improved, and youth hockey is prevalent.

 

The league would like to acknowledge his contributions and thank him for his efforts toward bringing ice hockey to the Central Susquehanna Valley.
