FROM THE DVHL BYLAWS

No DVHL league game can be used to satisfy the schedule of another league. If a team is found in violation of this and using the DVHL league game for multi purposes, that game will be a forfeit to both teams, both teams will forfeit their league championship and post season eligibility and the club will be placed on probation for one year.

Stay tuned for new season information...
