The best thing I can say is Stinky Socks is exactly as advertised. Good competitive hockey, played by good guys/gals without the nonsense of other leagues. I have been playing with them for over a year and haven’t had the slightest issue with anyone. Always a good game. Always two goalies and a ref.

StinkySocks is a league for the players and is a great experience. There is no checking and in the novice leagues there are no slapshots. Making easier for people to get up the next morning and not worry there going to break something. Whether your a novice or a college star this league has it all. There are also great clinics and programs to teach you the game.

Personally, I’ve been involved in organizing a number of skates and have dealt with league officials in other organizations. This experience has been painless. From providing us a goalie to cover, or providing skaters when we’re short, or to just answering all the dumb questions 11 hockey players can come up with, working with Peter and the StinkySocks crew has been a pleasure. In other organizations, you sometimes feel like a checkbook on skates, with these guys, you feel part of something.

As a goalie being able to play for free is a huge bonus and motivates me to play better and increase my level of play.

- Michael M, Goalie

I haven’t played organized hockey for at least 15 years because I couldn’t find a league that was this much fun as well as being competitive. All the players are competitive during the game but are not dirty or chippy, which is unique for an adult league.

In my almost 2 years of skating, it has taken sweat and determination to improve.  I am glad that I have participated in the StinkySocks skills.  Every season I participated in them I learned something new.  I enjoyed how the instructors give us tough love to push to our limits.  The skills followed by the game (Skills+) concludes the night with a competitive yet fun game. I am definitely able to apply what I have learned at the skills sessions to improve my game and hockey knowledge.

- Rudy V, Skills Participant

I joined my first league last Summer and was a little nervous what it would be like, since I had never played before. I had a blast and the group of guys couldn’t have been better or more fun to play with.

- Jordan M

The skills and the instructors are fantastic. Lots of older people just starting out or those that have been off the ice for a while will benefit immensely. The skills classes are without doubt the reason I can now compete on the ice.”

…our team had a great time… everyone got along real well. My buddy couldn’t say enough good things and he is definitely interested in participating in future events. Everyone in the locker room expressed an overwhelmingly positive view towards the SSH skates as well. I’m sure it’s a testament to both the level of organization you’ve provided via the web, but also the good nature of the core group of guys that you have built this thing around. Keep it up!
