Adult recreational sport. Played for the passion of the game by men and women over 19 years old. The post game ritual of sitting around a cooler full of beer bullshitting about skill level or lack thereof is as important as the game itself. Sportsmanship, camaraderie and competion are the key elements.

Epitomized by the 1.2 million Canadian adults proud to be playing hockey in the beer leagues.
