“To provide recreation enjoyment for its members in a game that is played safely and fairly within the rules. The name of the game is FUN for all members and winning is secondary.”
Play 45+ games from September to March, on average two games per week. Great fun and great value for your money.
The K-W Oldtimers Hockey Club has donated tens of thousands of dollars over the years to worthy community charities and projects.
The Kitchener-Waterloo Oldtimers’ Hockey Club Inc. was formed in 1978 by Jack Kirby and the original league consisted of eight teams.
2018-2019 was our 41st season, with 30 teams playing a 46 game schedule per team.
This league of hockey teams is for men 35 years of age and older, playing 2 games per week from approximately October through March each year.
The philosophy and purpose of the Kitchener-Waterloo Oldtimers’ Hockey Club Inc. is: “to provide recreation enjoyment for its members in a game that is played safely and fairly within the rules. The name of the game is FUN for all members and winning is secondary.”
