TEAM Pittsburgh Ball Hockey

About Our Program

The Team Pittsburgh in-house league has 30+ teams each session with age groups of boys and girls ranging from 4 - 19.  There is a league for everyone.  All of our officials are certified by the United States Dek Hockey Federation.  We have a fully stocked pro shop for all your hockey needs as well as a concession stand. We run 3 seasons per year, a Spring, Summer, and Fall. They run from March to December with no winter season. The seasons are made up of 10 regular season games and a single-elimination playoff.

Chipmunk division games are modified with the coaches on the dek and the first three games are split into half practice and scrimmage style before having 7 games in full game format.  This allows for more practice time and better skill development at the 4-6 year old level.

In all divisions except Chipmunk, full time goalie registration fees are free at the time of registration.  To have your registration honored for playing goalie, your child must play 8 out of the 10 regular season games.

Cost to sign up is $65 per season ($35 per chipmunk player) and a family sign up is a maximum of $150.

Your child will play in the age group of their age on January 1st.  They will play in that age group during all 3 seasons in that year. Girls get an extra year at each division. For example, the Chipmunk age group for girls is 4-7.  See the rules and regulations section below to determine which division your child will sign up in based on USDHF rules.

Our In-House players are also eligible for a $1500 dollar scholarship through our academic scholarship program. Click here for more information and details on how to qualify.

If anyone has any questions about rosters, schedules, coaches or any other topic pertaining to a specific age group, please contact the administrators listed on this page. The administrators are the best source of information for their respective age groups.
