HISTORY
The group started in 2004 when Swiss DJ Markus Benz placed an ad in a local magazine looking for others to take advantage of a new seasonal rink built over the Hongkou swimming pool. A large group quickly converged, their enthusiasm barely crippled by the lack of boards, glass, curved corners, a roof, or the presence of a three meter diameter post in the middle of one team’s defensive zone.

The group bonded by visiting a number of international tournaments, starting in Shenyang and passing through Bangkok, Dubai, Mongolia, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea (both North and South), and more. The first league season was played in 2005 in the foggy and now-defunct Tiger Mall rink.

Over the years, the SHC grew in numbers and skill. In 2015, we had our 10th Anniversary Season, splitting the league into A and B Divisions, cementing the SHC as the premiere adult hockey league in Asia. We currently play at Feiyang Skating Center in Sanlin Pudong, right down road from those shinny, tall towers in Lujiazui.
The SHC is a volunteer organization.

Remember: have fun, respect other players, and it’s all about hockey, beers, and babes!
