Information About the Yorkshire & North East League


As of the 2021/22 season, Yorkshire & North East Hockey is responsible for all local adult competitions & hockey activity in the Area, introducing new leagues and standardised regulations.

Adult Leagues consist of both men and women’s sections. There are 19 men’s and 20 women’s divisions, spilt into local areas.

Please note the Grade of the divisions your teams are playing in, as this will impact how the league regulations affect each team. EHL divisions are Grade 1, Area divisions are Grades 2 to 5.  All of the fixtures are managed via the Game Management System (GMS).  Club and team contacts will have access to the relevant parts of the GMS.  Clubs need to enter venues and times for all fixtures within a given timescale (4 weeks before, or longer, depending on the Grade). The system will also incorporate the appointment of officials. 

Every player needs to register on the GMS, & this will form the basis for online teamsheets for every game, at all levels. This player registration will ensure that a fair selection policy is maintained, guided by the regulations, and a transfer process if players wish to move clubs.

The Area also runs indoor competitions, & summer leagues.
