Historically, MTL has registered West Orange Teams at Montclair State. We do not plan to do so this year other than a High School team. If you would like your child to get more ice time and participate, we encourage you to register them as an individual at the provided link and we will make our best effort to request that all West Orange kids are placed on the same team.

Welcome to Mountain Top League's Hockey program page. Mountain Top League provides affordable recreational hockey opportunities for boys and girls of all skill levels from Learn to Play through High School. We field teams each year in the Morris County Youth Hockey League, Union Sports Arena and Montclair State University Arena leagues.
Our hockey program was founded in 2013. Mountain Top League provides one of the few truly “town teams” in the area. Our program focuses on developing hockey skills, teamwork and fun. Many of our Mountain Top League players also participate in travel hockey clubs across the area, as well as recreational clinics and leagues. Mountain Top League supplements these experiences by exposing the players to quality coaching with an emphasis on hockey fundamentals and team play with friends from across West Orange. Our program is closely coordinated with the West Orange High School Hockey Program, and we've watched many of our players eventually join the West Orange High School Hockey Team.
All Mountain Top League hockey program coaches are USA Hockey trained and certified.
We look forward to working with your player on the ice!
