2020/21 Season is cancelled

As most of you are aware, the current lockdown rules, coupled with the announced closing of rinks where DPL league games are scheduled, has forced your DPL Managment Team to cancel all remaining games of the 2020/21 hockey season. We will now concentrate on the planing for the upcoming 2021/22 hockey season.

We will inform you whether or not an 2021 Inliner Season will take place as and when we have more relevant information. No decision has been made at this time.

Your DPL has a responsibility to all referees, players, coaches and fans to ensure the safe operation of the DPL.

We ask for your understanding. This was a decision which we did not take lightly. In view of the current pandemic situation, we felt it was the best course of action to take.

Extended: Games on-hold in Dec

As most of you are well aware, the German government has taken further steps to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases in Germany. As a result, the postponement of DPL games has been extended through December, 2020. We will revisit the situation again in December to determine whether or not we can re-start in Jan, 2021.

You can find an overview of the latest Corona-Rules here (in German).

Pforzheim Hockey Camp

Senior Hockey Camp Aug 2020 in Pforzheim

For the 9th year in a row, the „Senior“ Hockey Training Camp for DPL players and friends took place. Unlike previous years in Heilbronn, this time around the Camp was hosted from Aug 28-20 in Pforzheim. Using 2 ice times per day, Ronny Arendt put the 20 players and 3 goalies through their paces. Skating, passing, 5 on 5 positioning and strategy plus numerous other drills kept the hockey camp participants on their toes over the 3 days.

A big thank you goes out to the Camp‘s organizer Arne Röhrig.👏🏼🏒🥅

Looking forward to the next Camp!
