Our high schools are united in one mission - Create a single high school hockey club that focuses on excellence in the classroom, in the community, and on the ice.
Wheaton West is a member of the Illinois West High School Hockey League, as well as the North Suburban League (for JV White players).
Practices are held at our home rink at Center Ice of Dupage in Glen Ellyn, IL.
Tryouts are usually in late August. Seasons then start after that and can go until early March.
Games are normally on Friday nights and weekends, but some can be played during the week.
Each team normally practices 2 times a week.
What costs beyond registration fees should be expected?
Players are responsible for their own equipment costs and travel accommodations for any out of town tournaments.
Wheaton West colors are black and silver. All incoming players should have a black helmet and black pants.
The season fee is $3,650 for skaters and $2,300 for goalies. The season fee includes a non-refundable, pre-registration fee of $500 for pre-season Conditioning Skates and Tryouts. The $500 fee must be paid prior to the start of Conditioning Skates whether or not the player decides to participate in the Conditioning skates. No skater or goalie will be allowed on the ice until this fee is paid. The $500 will be deducted from the season fee when the player registers for the season. The season fee can be paid in full or by payment plan following the online registration process. Registration and payment must be completed prior to the first team practice.
The player fee also includes a REFUNDABLE $250 volunteer deposit. Each season we need volunteers AT ALL LEVELS AND IN A VARIETY OF CAPACITIES. with many different events and game events. When a family meets THEIR 10 HOUR volunteer requirement, their $250 will be refunded to them.
The season fee also includes 2-3 tournament entry fees as well as the cost for the Blackhawk Cup (Illinois High School State Championship), if your team qualifies. All out of town travel and hotel costs are at the family’s expense.
