There are two organization that promote and support adult ice hockey in the United States. The first is Hockey North America ("HNA"), a full service organization that sponsors adult leagues throughout the year and run a league championships series that draws 1,500 competitors.

The second organization, USA Hockey, does not run leagues, but it does offer instruction and adult hockey tournaments for both men and women.

The first table below shows the 2018 schedule for the major ice hockey tournaments sponsored by HNA and USA Hockey. The second and third table present the champions of the 2017 USA Hockey Adult Nationals and 2017 Pond Hockey Championships. Because teams in the Hockey North America are "intergenerational", it is not possible to determine the number of players of specific ages on each team.
