The Rochester Monarchs are an American Junior hockey organization based in Fairport, New York.  The teams are based out of the Thomas Creek Ice Arena.  The organization has teams in the United States Premier Hockey League's Elite, U18, and U16 leagues which start play with the 2016-17 season.  The organization is scheduled to start a team in the Premier division starting with the 2018-19 season.  The organization is replacing the Rochester Junior Americans organization in the USPHL.

The organization was notified sometime in January or February of 2020 they were to be removed from the NCDC after the 2019-20 season due to on ice performance. The organization would also later withdraw from the USPHL's Premier Division in order to focus on youth hockey.[1]


The organization dates back to 1973 when the organization had a team in the New York-Penn Major Hockey League. That franchise won several league championships during the league's existence from 1973 to 1978. The organization has operated youth teams since that time as part of the Perinton Youth Hockey organization.
