Northerns Country Districts

Country Districts hockey has been around for many, many years and was initially aimed at providing a national tournament for players residing outside of the main urban centres.  However, the proliferation of artificial surfaces in the urban centres has resulted in the vast majority of hockey being played there and a new definition of Country Districts was sought.  Qualification criteria differ from province to province, based on their unique demographics but, for Northerns, our Country Districts teams are made up of non-premier league players, in other words, our best available players in the second and lower leagues.
