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.
See below for the Bluehawk summer programming. For more info please email Rich Blakey @ RBlakey30@gmail.com.

Congrats to Bantam 1, coached by Zach Loesch for placing second in the NIHL Elite division.

Congrats to the players for their sportsmanship and character, as they left it all on the ice. It was a memorable day for many of these players because it was their final game as a Bluehawk. Best of luck in your hockey careers and thank you for the many years of memories.
