The season promises to provide our student-athletes with outstanding opportunities to compete in high school hockey. As one of only a few high school sponsored hockey programs in Illinois. We plan to field a Varsity Team and two Junior Varsity Teams (JV Gold and JV White). Hockey is a lettered sport at Stevenson High School and our teams play in the most competitive Illinois High School league in the state.
Tryouts are held the second week in August, typically a few days before school starts and runs through mid-March.
The Stevenson Hockey club primarily skates out of Twin Rinks Ice Pavilion in Buffalo Grove. Most home games and practices will be held here.
On average both JV teams and Varsity practice two-three times per week during either 60 or 90 minute slots.
JV Gold (JVG) and Varsity both play in the Scholastic Hockey League (SHL). JV White plays in the IHSHL North Central League. Between regular season league games, playoffs, exhibition games and tournaments Varsity averages 50-65 games and JV averages 40-50.
Varsity: Pre-Season Tournament (9/8-9/10), US High School Showcase (11/10-11/12), Stevenson Thanksgiving Tournament, Invitational Showcase -- Buffalo, NY (11/30-12/2)
JV Gold & JV White: Pre-Season Tournament, Stevenson Thanksgiving Tournament and Holiday Tournament.
