Dear Parents and Players,
Welcome to 2020-2021 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.
Schedule and Game Information
The Varsity and JV Gold teams will compete in the Scholastic Hockey League. In addition to regularly scheduled league games, additional practice games may be added at the coach’s discretion. Teams will participate in additional tournaments, as permitted by AHAI and as determined safe. Game schedules and game start dates are tentative based upon guidance from AHAI and the Illinois Department of Public Health. In the event that games are not permitted to be played and a reduction of ice is sought, there will be a dues adjustment at the end of the season.
The information, guidelines and rules provided below are extensive - PLEASE MAKE SURE to read and understand all of them before you sign up for the program. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Required Team Specific Funds:

The Team fund may be made at registration or via a separate check that is due by August 31, 2020. Team Funds are established for each individual team and will cover extra costs associated for that specific team such as team meals, team t-shirts, team building activities and food during bus transportation. Should the Varsity team be permitted to travel out of town to a tournament and it is deemed safe, an additional into the team fund of approximately $300 will be owed. This additional fee would cover some of the additional costs for the out of town tournament, such as food, busing and activities. Hotel costs for the tournament would be in addition to the team fund. The Team Fund will be tracked by the Association and the Team Manager. A final accounting will be provided at the end of the season and is also available upon request. Any remaining balance at the end of the season will be refunded evenly back to each family.
New Player Package:
Every new player will need to purchase an equipment package which includes two game jerseys (home & away), two pairs of socks, warm-up pants and jacket, shell, and a bag at a cost of $550.
Stevenson bags are required for all players. Full payment can be made during registration or via separate check due August 30, 2020. A jersey fitting (if additional fitting is needed), will occur on after tryouts at Twin Rinks. Returning player can purchase replacement equipment at the applicable charge.
Equipment: A green helmet and green gloves are required to be purchased through the club if the player is new to the program. The total cost of this purchase is $265. Full payment can be made during registration or via separate check due August 30, 2020.
Varsity Alternate Set: If the player is selected to the Varsity team, an alternate third jersey package is required at the cost of $240. Full payment can be made during registration or via separate check due August 30, 2020.
Prior Season Dues & Late Collections: Prior season dues 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 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 a late fee. A 2-day grace period will be given on all payments and then a $100 late fee will apply.
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. 30% 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 prolonged injury or illness.
