Welcome to Nazareth Hockey Club!
NAZARETH HOCKEY CLUB is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for school age students to learn to play ice hockey. NHC promotes an understanding of the sport while encouraging a sense of fair play and team spirit. The club places emphasis at all level of the organization on the fun, education and close relationships that are formed during the team sport experience.
NHC volunteers strive to provide a positive and meaningful experience for all players. NHC will provide administrational support and instruction necessary for all players to improve their hockey skills and to learn the value of participating in a team sport.
NHC is a member of the Lehigh Valley Scholastic Hockey League (LVSHL). NHC teams are the official representatives to LVSHL of the Nazareth Area School District and are officially recognized by NASD as a club team. However, NHC is not sanctioned or financially supported by the NASD since ice hockey is not a PIAA sanctioned sport.
NHC and LVSHL rules and bylaws are governed by USA Hockey, Inc. (USAH) and all players and administrators are required to be USAH members. USAH is the national governing body for the sport of ice hockey in the US including officiating (referee certification), registrations, coaching certification, and risk management.
All NHC coaches are USAH trained and certified.
