The South Eastern Manitoba Hockey League is one of the oldest continuously operating hockey leagues in Manitoba. It is classified as a Senior Hockey League, not because the players are in their 60's or 70's but because in most towns where there is hockey, there always was a classification between Minor Hockey (young boys hockey) and Senior Hockey (adult men’s hockey). Senior or Intermediate hockey has long been a part of Canada's smaller communities and the SEMHL is one of many leagues that has provided great hockey action for many years.

The SEMHL was formed back in 1951 and the following teams competed in the inaugural year:

Altona

Emerson

Winkler

Morris

Over the years there have been many changes to the league, with old teams stepping down and new teams joining. The one constant that remains is the exciting hockey that over 50 years has been the drawing card in each and every community that was proud to have a team competing.

During the 1950's and into the 1960's the SEMHL was a hotbed of hockey that featured many ex Pro hockey players and some that even went on to play hockey. In fact it was once said that there were better Senior hockey teams playing in Manitoba than some of the NHL Minor League teams at the time. Fans would make any and all concessions to arrive at arenas on frozen nights to cheer on the likes of players such as ex-NHL rookie of the year, Jimmy McFadden, tough guy characters like Tom Rockey (recently inducted into Manitoba’s Hockey Hall of Fame), Red Thompson, outstanding goalies like Frank Hildebrand, high scoring forwards Don Thompson, Harry Bueckert, Bill Wilms, Wayne Stephenson before he went to St Louis, Brian Coates, and the Woods brothers, Arnold in Miami and Earl in Winkler and their dad Bert, one of the early builders of the League.

Fans have recounted times when there were so many people in some of the arenas that people were literally viewing games from in the rafters.

Throughout the 1970's, 80's, 90's and up until today the SEMHL has featured many talented players, playing in front of and for many supportive and loyal fans.

Usually the players on the teams have consisted of players who have returned to their roots to play for their local hockey team after playing at various levels of hockey including High School, AAA Midget, Junior C, Junior B, Major Junior, Junior A, Canadian University, American College/University and Professional hockey.
