By ADMIN, 04/24/20, 10:45AM EDT



Heading into its 2nd season, the United Tier 1 Hockey League is excited to announce it's new and improved league structure. Two significant moves will help our member teams create a strong & balanced schedule, while maximizing player development and exposure.

1. Addition of a 14U Division

2. Creating a North & South Conference

This upcoming season the UT1HL organizations will be aligned in two  conferences (North & South) where teams will compete in a an effort to reduce travel while helping create those local rivalries that make youth hockey so exciting.  The league showcases will include all member teams as well as top tiered teams from across the North East.  The UT1HL will maintain a similar structure as the inaugural season with a Fall Showcase and a Winter Playoff Weekend.  

The 2020-21 UT1HL Tier I schedule:

September 11-13, 2020 - UT1HL Fall Showcase

  • All Teams will Participate
  • Showcase will include games against guest teams
  • Location: New Hampshire


February 26-28, 2021 – UT1HL Playoffs

  • All Full Season Teams will participate
  • Champions will be crowned at the 14U, 16U & 18U levels
  • Location Massachusetts


“We are very pleased at how our first season went in the UT1HL and are looking to make a big step forward for this year.  We believe that the addition of the 14U division as well as aligning our teams in North and South Divisions will do just that.” said UT1HL Commissioner Dennis McCauley. "The UT1HL is a league that has a players and families first mentality.  We want them to get a strong schedule with an opportunity to be seen by scouts without having to deal with extreme travel or cost"
