Congrats to WHITE and all the 2017 AHC players and families for making the pre-High School season so much fun this year.  And Best Wishes to all players and their respective High School teams in the coming season!

There are 7 league games per team and 2 skills sessions — the Schedule is already posted in another post below and at academyhockeyclub.com.

Since this is a pre-season warm up league, player safety is paramount. Therefore:
– no checking format
– 4v4 to maximize icetime/touches
– 3 min warmup, 2-20 min periods, 5 min shootout
– 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie. All games end with a Shootout worth 1 point (3 points max per game)
– last league game is 1st v 2nd (championship) and 3rd v 4th
– skills session led by Coaches Thomas and Mathis and Lantry (goalies) to complete season and get players ready for high school tryouts
– USA hockey rule book (e.g. Fighting or other match penalties mean you are out for current game plus 1 game)

Let us know if you have a question, and Remember, It’s always a great day for hockey!

The feedback is in…and we are listening!  Our SWOHSHL and USA Hockey Players requested a better balance between hockey and their other Fall High School activities.  As a result, Academy High School Hockey decided to provide a different format for the Fall League.

New format:
> – Academy High School Hockey Fall League
> – 8 September – 30 October
> – 4 Teams (arranged for competitive play within OHSAA rules)
> – 7 Games and 2 Skill Sessions (-intro night & team selection night) Guaranteed
> – Some Thursdays 8:30 pm and some Sundays 11:00am
> – South Metro Arena, Centerville OH
> – Open to all SWOHSHL and USA High School Players
> – Cost per player: $180.00
