The BEST Summer Hockey League in Chicago for Players ages 17 and Up.


2018 Season

We are excited to get a head start on the 2018 season. 


2018 Registrations are now active.  Go to the top right hand side of the website and hit 2018 Registrations to get set up for the league draft.


Take a look at our Facebook page for game pics.  Also, follow last season's stats throughout the league in the team/rosters tab.  We gave out awards at the end of the season: League MVP, MVP Forward, MVP Defenseman, MVP Goaltender, Top High School Player and the Commissioner's Award.  We will be continuing that practice in the upcoming season.


Starting around the 1st of March we will be listing all Registered Players on the SCHL website.  Hope to see you all back this summer and help us welcome new players, too.


Please let us know if you have any questions:
