What is the SGHL?

The Southern Girls' Hockey League (SGHL) is the first girls' youth hockey league in the Southeast. Our mission is to provide girls in the South opportunities to play hockey and develop into strong female leaders. We strive to build an environment that is safe, fun and challenging for the girls to grow their skills on and off the ice.

The SGHL started unofficially in the spring of 2019. Since then, we have grown to an official USA Hockey league. We now field 4 divisions (8/10s development, 12U, 16U & 19U) and have teams from the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee & Florida.

We are constantly growing and accepting new teams in the Southeast Region. Please contact us at if you have any questions or are interested in our league.

What is Florida Girls Hockey?

There are three levels of focus for growing the number of girls hockey players in Florida, expanding their development opportunities, collaborating with rinks and associations to create more intra state teams and development opportunities, and a set of elite/National Bound Girls teams under the Florida Alliance program.  The images below show how the program and these levels are structured.
