Welcome to the Alexandria Roller Hockey League
ARHL is the DC Metro area's premier adult roller hockey organization. Located in Alexandria, VA, ARHL is comprised of four unique leagues of varying skill levels from novice to advanced. To learn more about ARHL's leagues, click here.
After over four months of the rink being closed, we are happy to announce that we will be getting back to hockey in a limited capacity starting next week.
As ARHL returns to play, we recognize the following:
Not all players will be ready to return at the same time.
COVID-19 is still a serious public health threat and will continue to be until vaccines or other effective therapeutics are widely available.
With this in mind, resuming normal league activities will not be possible at this time. However, we also recognize that many ARHL players are eager to return to play and are willing to accept the associated risk of doing so. It is our goal to allow those who do wish to play the ability to do so while minimizing the chances of contracting or spreading COVID-19 during league activities. To this end, we will be making several changes to how the league operates for the time being.
In place of normal league activities we will start to host organized pickup sessions multiple times a week on our normal league days/nights. In order to comply with safety guidelines we will be implementing several precautionary measures to mitigate the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19 at the rink including, but not limited to:
Requiring pre-registration and capping the number of pick-up participants to 20 skaters and two goalies per session
Requiring all participants to have their temperatures checked upon arrival at the rink by the commissioner on duty, who will run the operations and will be tasked with ensuring the safety of players
Enforcing social distancing for those who are not on the rink
Asking that all players wear masks when not playing
Prohibiting tailgating before and after sessions
