Tryouts/Regular Season

Tryouts / Regular Season

The season promises to provide our student-athletes with outstanding opportunities to compete in high school hockey. We plan to field a Varsity Team and a Junior Varsity Team. Both teams play in the largest league in the State - IHSHL North Central.


9th graders through 12th graders that attend Buffalo Grove, Hersey, or Wheeling High Schools.


Tryouts are typically held the third week in August. The season will run through mid-March


BG/H/W Hockey primarily skates out of West Meadows Ice Arena in Rolling Meadows. We have our own locker room that is shared between both teams.


On average JV and Varsity practice 2-3 times per week at West Meadows during a 60-90 minute slot.


JV and Varsity both play in the competitive IHSHL North Central Division. Between regular season league games, playoffs, exhibition games, and tournaments Varsity averages between 50-60 games and JV averages between 45-55 games.
