The NHL’s Official Youth Street Hockey League

NHL STREET brings new style, energy, and gameplay to the sport of hockey. We’re creating an affordable, neighborhood-based model that gives kids everywhere an opportunity to learn and play.

The NHL has teamed up with RCX Sports—the leader in youth sports experiences—to bring NHL STREET to life. Designed for kids ages 6 to 16 years old, our youth athletes feel like the pros when they suit up in authentic NHL STREET uniforms to play in high-energy, team-first leagues.

Frequently Asked Questions

We offer leagues for ages 6 to 16 years old. Previous experience in hockey is not required! Whether you’re new to the game or a veteran on-ice player looking to continue your season, NHL STREET welcomes kids of all skill levels.

NHL STREET has its own gameplay model, designed to be fast-paced and engaging for all participants. Most leagues (depending on size of playing surface) use a 4-on-4 setup, plus goalies. Games consist of two 15-minute halves. Tie-breaks are settled with shoot-outs.

The total time commitment to participate in NHL STREET is about 1 hour per week. Most leagues operate on a 6-, 8-, or 10-week cycle. Coaches hold a 20-minute practice before each game, and games consist of two 15-minute halves.

All NHL STREET participants receive a uniform as part of their registration. These are the only requirements to get in the game. NHL STREET leagues provide balls and goalie equipment, so players don’t need to purchase or bring their own equipment from home. Players are allowed to wear helmets, gloves, shin-pads, mouthguards, and sweatbands if they wish, but these are optional. Skates, elbow and shoulder pads, ice hockey pants, and ice hockey goalie equipment are not permitted. Players may bring and use their own stick if it is suitable for street hockey.
