NBHL COVID-19 UPDATE 3/26/2020

NBHL cares about your health and is aligning with local action plans to address COVID-19. It is our intent to continue Spring Hockey when it is safe to do so, and the timing of this is closely connected to Park District Sports Center availability. Once NBHL is made aware of a date the Sports Center will re-open, NBHL will mobilize to get Spring Hockey, in some form, up and running.

Spring Hockey program scenarios are being evaluated based on a variety of factors, however, no plans can be established at this time. Rest assured, our goal is to get our hockey players back on the ice when it is safe to do so, even if that is for a shortened spring season. Once programming is set, we will share any adjustments being made for spring fees already paid, with the intent of being fact based and fair in the process.

In our constantly evolving environment, we learn and plan daily. As things change, this website will be updated and more questions can be answered as we learn more. In the meantime, enjoy the extra family time and we wish everyone good health.
