The Flames Community House League is a partnership between the Calgary Flames organization, Hockey Calgary and our member associations.  The goal is to provide recreational players the opportunity to play organized hockey that is affordable, fun and safe with moderate time commitments allowing for participation in other social, academic or recreational activities. It also provides players with limited skills and knowledge an introduction to the game in a less intimidating format. The program is regionally based, offers participants a chance to play the great game of hockey with less time and travel commitments.
