A brief history

FCPHL (Fort Collins Pond Hockey League) started in 1992 on a local pond in Fort Collins, CO.  Most of the initial players had never played hockey before let alone been on ice skates.  From its meager beginnings the pond has hosted numerous people throughout the city, region and state from every walk of life, age and size, from future stars to weekend duffers.  Even though the pond is part of the city’s natural areas the maintenance and organization is strictly done by volunteers with no assistance from the city.  There is only one rule on the pond and that is if you skate on the pond than help shovel the pond.  As of the 2014 – 2015 season there were hundreds of players and kids that had used the pond for enjoyment.  For the last 9 years FCPHL has been putting on a pond hockey tournament at a local resort in the foothills west of Fort Collins.
