Looking for a team
I'm 19 years old and have been out of competitive hockey for close to a year due to my lung collapsing. I've been getting back on the ice lately, and working out some kinks, and I'm feeling ready to play at a higher level again.
I've been planning on checking out a Long Beach State game to see how that looks.
Michigan was always my #1 choice, because of they're dominance, and they seem to love having the small, fast, italian forward every year or so. (Cammalleri, Tambellini, Cogliano)
Outside of the collegiate level, I really have NO IDEA where I could play a good level of hockey, especially living in Southern California.
Any suggestions or advice would help, thanks.
monday nights theres a good pickup game at the bay harbor rink that has a good level of play, its 20 bucks and starts around 730 usually

Do you have to know somebody and get "invited" to play in this, or is it first-come, first served?

as far as i know its first come first serve, me and my buddy didnt really get invited when we first started going

At Anaheim Ice, there are a couple of adult leagues that are pretty decent. The highest competition is the elite league, which is for collegiate players/collegiate coaches. The league below is the intermediate league, which I use to play in, but I skipped this long season. The next season starts May/June if you're interested because we're trying to get a team together again.
