15TH ANNUAL NORTHBROOK HOCKEY GOLF CLASSIC

We’re fast approaching our 15th Annual Northbrook Hockey Golf Classic.  The annual golf outing is a great way to help support the hockey program and have some fun with friends.

Again this year we will raise much needed funds for need based hockey scholarships for Northbrook hockey players. 

The flyer provides a few details and in the near future you’ll receive more information on participating and also the opportunity to help sponsor the event.

So Save September 20, 2019 somewhere.   Write it on your calendar, enter it in your phone, or just write it on the kitchen wall….. September 20

Travel Tryout and League Information - Fall 2019/20

On June 1st, the Amateur Hockey Assoc. of Illinois (AHAI) passed a rule that will permit tryouts to begin eight days prior to Labor Day Holiday. The reasoning was a desire by clubs to move tryouts away from Labor Day weekend. This will impact our preseason schedule as follows:

Pre-season skates will begin on August 17th.   Tryouts for travel teams will begin on Sunday, August 25th and conclude no later than Friday August 30th.  Optional ice will be available 8/31.  The SportsCenter will be closed for the holiday weekend 9/1 and 9/2.

All Bluehawks travel teams will be playing in the Northern Illinois Hockey League (NIHL) for the 2019/20 season.


Come Join Jr. Spartans and Bluehawks in Northbrook's mile long 4th of July parade!

Northbrook Hockey League is continuing a wonderful tradition. All Northbrook Hockey Players, coaches, parents and siblings are invited to march with the club in this year's 4th of July Parade!   

Details:  Meet on Cherry Ln just west of Westmoor School at 2:00pm.  The parade starts at 2:30 and features 72 entries. We are in spot #62.  If you are dropping off  your child, the best spot to do so is at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 1133 Pfingston Rd. The parade ends at Meadow and Shermer.

We'll have some t-shirts, but don't forget to wear your Bluehawks/Spartans hats, shirts … and bring water.
