Here is a little background info on the team;

The Admirals is one of five (5) teams in the NZIHL. We are based in West Auckland, New Zealand. Auckland is New Zealand’s largest city, and is surrounded by beautiful beaches and coastlines with a population of 1.4 million people. We have a number of National team and National junior team players on our roster. The majority of the players are working professionals as ice hockey in New Zealand is fully amateur.

The regular season runs roughly from May to the start of September which is our winter. Every team plays sixteen (16) games, eight (8) at home and eight (8) away. We play every team four (4) times and the top two (2) teams at the end of the regular season play in a best of three (3) game series final. All games are double-headers (playing on either Saturday & Sunday or Friday & Saturday nights) to work around weekly work schedules.

Our rink is based in Avondale and is NHL sized. We have our own locker room that allows our players to leave their equipment at the rink. We generally have two (2) on-ice and two (2) off-ice compulsory trainings per week. However there are a number of events throughout the season players are expected to attend.

In 2017 we have a limit of four (4) imports. In the past, imports have come from America, Canada, Finland, Czech Republic, England, Czech, and France.

 

Thanks again,

Admirals management.
