The West Auckland Admirals are one of the original four NZIHL teams. In the franchises exciting fifteen season history the team have made four trips to the grand finals; once in the inaugural 2005, again in 2010 then in 2017 and then becoming Champions for the first time in the franchises history in 2018.
As the NZIHL has grown so has the Admirals family, always welcoming kiwi talent and keeping the young core that it began with in 2005. The club is tight knit believes in hard physical work to garner victories.
The club has always been based out of the Paradice Ice Arena in Avondale, Auckland which in itself has a proud 37 year operating history. In early 2010 the Arena received a massive renovation which brought it to international standards and allowed the Admirals club to install their very own changing room (something not that common among NZ ice hockey clubs).
The Admirals and its players are always focused on playing hard with the ultimate goal of lifting the Birgel Cup.
