Want to get out on the ice? We're here to help make that happen. And make sure you have a fun time at it too.

This page is here to make joining us simple and easy. Hopefully it will answer all your questions. If not, please drop us an email and we'll answer them personally.

We also have a Frequently Asked Questions page that might help answer your questions too.

     • SF Quakes - The team was founded in 1989 and is filled with players that have been on it since then. The team plays at the Yerba Buena Ice Center in San Francisco. They are in the Faultline Adult Hockey League there and play in the "D" Division (there are Div A to D). Some players have played all their life, others only started a few years back. Turnover is low, camaraderie is high, and the team plays hard. It's moderately competitive and can get a bit rough (even though it is a no-check league).

What should you do to learn more and find out if the team is a good match for you?

     • Come Watch a Game - we play all year round and the game schedule is posted here on the site. There are usually fans in the stands and teammates who are more than happy to talk to you after a game. It's a great way to see the level of play and talk to some of the players. The SF team usually goes out for drinks (usually at LoneStar) after their earlier games (always 8pm games and sometimes after 9:30pm games). We'd love to have you join us for drinks too.

     • Attend Stick Time with a Quakes player - several rinks in the Bay Area offer "stick time"/"Gretzky Hour" sessions where you can informally practice skills (full equipment required). Find a
session time at one of the rinks below and send an email to the
Quakes so a player can join you for a fun practice and tell you more about our teams.
