Dear Parents and Players,
Welcome to 2019-2020 Stevenson High School Hockey (SHSH). The new season promises to provide our student-athletes with outstanding opportunities to compete in high school hockey. As one of only a few high school sponsored hockey programs in Illinois, we are proud to field both Varsity and Junior Varsity team. Hockey is a lettered sport at Stevenson High School and our teams play in the most competitive Illinois High School league in the state.
Per Stevenson’s Athletic Department guidelines, only one sport per season may be played. Ice Hockey is designated as a Winter Sport. Players are permitted to participate in both Fall and Spring sports and any desired activities, even though Hockey spans over multiple seasons.

We will have a Pre-Tryout registration day on August 7, 2019 - from 6:00-8:00 at Twin Rinks in the Party Room. For players paying offline, checks should be turned in at this meeting.
Dues from the previous season: must be paid in full prior to tryouts or the players will not be permitted on the ice. A player must tryout to be placed on a team.
SHSH policy requires that payment of the player dues, team fund and payment package must be made by the required due date. Failure to pay any installment by the designated deadline will result in a player's immediate suspension from team activities until payment is made or a payment plan is agreed upon. Failure to pay will also be referred to the AHAI Rules and Ethics Committee for player suspension.
If a credit card, debit card or check payment is declined or bounces, a minimum $100 NSF fee per transaction will be incurred. If additional charges above and beyond the $100 are incurred by the SHSH bank, you will be billed for the overage. If for any reason you feel your credit card or debit card will not clear, please notify the Treasurer at least 10 days prior to the transaction date to avoid NSF charges.
Sponsorships: Stevenson High School Hockey recognizes that playing hockey is expensive. To help offset the cost, you will have the opportunity to attract sponsorships for the team. A portion of the sponsored amount will be paid back to you separately after all payment obligations are met for the season. Details will be available at the mandatory team meeting at the beginning of the season.
Please Note that as soon as your player was put on a team roster, the entire season fees are non refundable. There are No exceptions to include prolong injury or illness.
