The Indonesian Ice Hockey Federation (FHEI) is the national sports organisation for ice hockey in Indonesia. FHEI has been registered as a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), an international body that oversees the sport of ice hockey and the Indonesia National Olympic Committee (KOI).
In running the organisation, FHEI follows directions from IIHF which requires its members to roll out the wheels of competition such as the ice hockey league (Indonesia Ice Hockey League – IIHL), international tournaments (Indonesia Invitational Ice Hockey Tournament – IIHT), as well as several other programs such as the introduction of ice hockey among children (Hockey Intro to Children) in collaboration with schools, youth development program (Youth Development Program), and development and certification programs for referee (Officiating Development Program).
FHEI also spawned a national ice hockey team, which participates in annual tournaments organised by the IIHF or the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
This sport grew and developed in Indonesia, starting with the introduction of inline skating back in the 90s. Shortly after inline skating became popular to the public, the inline hockey era began. This is marked by the number of exhibition events that are held up to national level championships.
Ice hockey itself has a similar story, this sport began to be known to the public when Indonesia had their first ice rink, which was located in one of the shopping places in Jakarta in 2001 and now there are several more ice rinks located in multiple states.
The development of ice hockey in Indonesia over the last 2 decades has given a new colour to the growth of ice hockey in Asia. Indonesia is becoming known internationally as one of the countries in Southeast Asia with a tropical climate who participate in a sport that used to only be played by countries who have winter seasons.
