The Mission of the Original 6

The "Original 6 Hockey Association" is a USA Hockey affiliated Adult Hockey League that plays at the Steel Ice Center in Bethlehem, PA. Founded with 6 teams in 2006, the league has expanded to 9 teams and 2 divisions. We are a recreational hockey league centered on the enjoyment of ice hockey while providing a competitive environment to do so.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our games and players are competitive but respectful of each other and the game. Games are played Monday through Thursday October to April.

Our league by-laws can be viewed here.
