Practices, Skills Sessions, Dryland Training & Game Schedules 
Practices, Skills Sessions, and Dryland Training Sessions will start the week of September 23. 

Games will start early October and schedules will be available once scheduled by the league. Home games take place at the RecPlex.  Away games take place at various rinks in Illinois.  The league usually runs a seeding round and a regular season.  This will mean that only a portion of games will be posted to your calendar at the beginning of the season.  Regular season games will be available AFTER the seeding round concludes, however, we do not have details of the NSYHL plans yet.

Regular season usually ends at the end of February.  Playoffs usually end early March.  House playoff games are held on a variety of weekends and weekdays at various rinks. PLEASE NOTE:  Playoff schedules will NOT be available until regular season games conclude.  This will mean that games will be added to your team's calendar at the last minute.  Playoff games CANNOT be pre-scheduled as it is all dependent upon standings.


USA Hockey is requiring the use of neck laceration protection for players in all age classifications, other than adults, in games and practices, as well as for on-ice officials under the age of 18, effective August 1, 2024. For clarity, the requirement includes players in the youth, girls and junior age classifications.
