COVID-19 has made it difficult for sports teams to compete, however, we have all been watching, reading, and listening and feel now is the time that we can operate in a safe environment.  

The Delaware Thunder and the Motor City Rockers have elected to go dormant due to COVID-19 and will resume play in the 2021-2022 season along with Bloomington, IL.  

The FPHL will conduct a dispersal draft this week, players not selected by any of the eight remaining teams will become free agents for the 2020-2021 season, all those who were on the team’s 25 man protected list will revert back to their original team at the conclusion of the season.
