History Belmont Iceland

The Belmont Cup Hockey League, formerly the Belmont Adult 4-on-4 Ice Hockey League, is a recreational hockey league, founded in 2005 at Belmont Iceland, Belmont, CA. When Belmont Iceland was demolished, the league moved to Nazareth Ice Oasis, first in Redwood City and then in San Mateo when the Bridgepointe rink re-opened.

Philosophy Have fun and be safe

The League's philosophy is to strive for team parity by evaluating new players in order to as closely balance the teams in skill mix as possible. Players play for fun and safety. No rough or dirty play will be tolerated. All participants in the League are adults who want to play hockey free from physical altercations, nasty or retributive conduct, and who have a high regard for protecting everyone's well-being.
