[color=blue]CIHL Registration Now Open[/color]
The puck will drop on the CIHL’s upcoming 2008-2009 season in October and registration is now open.
The CIHL plays at Taipei’s “Little Egg” Arena at the corner of Dunhua and Nanjing, just up the road from the Nanjing E. Rd MRT station in Taipei, but teams are based throughout Taiwan.
Last season the CIHL had eight teams, with squads based in Hsinchu, Taichung, Chaiyi and Kaohsiung in addition to four teams in Taipei.
This year, there’s a possibility of expansion, so wherever you are, if you’re interested in playing, now’s the time to get on board.
The CIHL draws on highly-skilled and recreational players; locals and ex-pats; the young (15 years) and not-so-young (47 years). The league is competitive; nurtures talent for both the International and National Typhoon squads that represent Taiwan in international tournaments; always fun; and growing. It’s a taste of home and a break from the everyday.
In the words of one team leader, it is

For anyone looking to get the rust off, there’s a training camp on now, Thursday evenings from 9:30 - 11:30. Cost: NT$550/session.
There will also be a mandatory pre-draft evaluation camp in mid-late September during which team leaders will evaluate new and returning players.
So, if you’ve got gear back home, now’s the time to have it shipped over.
If you’re looking for new gear Monoclub on Aiguo Rd, across from CKS is the place to get it: Aiguo East Rd, 20-1, 1F, Taipei. Tel: 2321 2065 email@example.com.
There’s also some used gear floating around.
