An Atlanta native, James Leonard is the fifth Commissioner of the AARHL since its inception more than a decade ago. James has been involved in roller hockey in the Atlanta area since 1995 and is honored to volunteer his time to the sport we all love.
James is supported by a team of longtime league volunteers who help orchestrate our open stick times, player evaluations, and goalie coordination and recruiting. James is the league's primary contact for new player inquiries, intraleague matters, and serves as the AARHL liaison with the Northeast Cobb YMCA.
When James is not attending to league business, you can find him sometimes skating, and often falling, with his Bronze division brethren on Sundays and Wednesdays at the rink. James can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Atlanta Adult Roller Hockey League is a non-profit sports league whose sole mission is to support comradery for those who love the game of hockey. Skaters must be 30 years or older...goalies can be 18 or older. A competitive spirit is welcome, but leave your attitude at the door. The AARHL does not condone poor sportsmanship or any act of fighting while participating in games or scrimmage. The league is run by a group of AARHL Elders who enforce the by-laws, organize the seasons and make other operational decisions about the league.
The AARHL currently has three divisions: a Gold division for those whose skill level has not left them at our advanced age. This is the more highly competitive league. The Silver and Bronze division are a mid and lower skill level divisions, of course, yet still very competitive. New players must be evaluated by coming out to our Wednesday scrimmage so we can get an idea of what division best suits you.
Games are on Sunday nights at 5,6,7,8 and 9pm. Scrimmages are held every Wednesday night from 7:00 to approximately 9 pm. Cost is $5 payable at the beginning of the scrimmage.
The AARHL's one and only home 'ice' is at the Johnson Ferry YMCA (see map below). The facility was built specifically for roller hockey with NHL-certified boards and glass, netting, benches, penalty boxes and scoreboard. Games are officiated by two AIHL-certified referees and stats are kept by an official scorer.
