Fall 2017-2018 Evaluation Information

Welcome to the 2017-18 Fox Valley Hawks High School Hockey Season! We have been working hard to make this a great year for our club and even greater experience for our high school players.

The Fox Valley Hawks are a part of the Illinois High School Hockey League (IHSHL) which is a part of AHAI, the governing body of Amateur Hockey in Illinois. The Fox Valley Hawks are a combined team consisting of players from 5 high schools in the Fox Valley area. These schools include Batavia, Geneva, Kaneland, St. Charles East & North. The Hawks will play in the North Central League for the 2017-18 season and also play various non-league games and tournament games throughout the season. Our home ice rink is Fox Valley Ice Arena however we also use Carol Stream Ice Rink for some practices and games.

Let’s get 3 common questions out of the way…

  • Yes, you must attend one of these schools to play for our club; simply living in the district does not qualify
  • Yes you can double roster and play for a AAA or Club team and the Fox Valley Hawks. We had several players do that in prior seasons.
  • And lastly, we are planning for 3 teams this season, 1 Varsity and 2 JV teams (Blue & White)

Now with that out of the way, let’s get down to business.

Registration opened on August 1st, 2017. Complete registration prior to August 14th, 2017 to receive a $100 discount on Fall Fees!

Fall Fees (2017-2018): At the Fox Valley Hawks, the board and hockey director work very hard to keep fees and costs reasonable and minimal. That being said, hockey is an expensive sport given the facilities, coaching and overall expenses. However, we strive to create a great program for the lowest possible cost.

We also ensure that our fees are our fees. There are NO additional fees, hidden costs, slush funds or fundraising associated with our program. We also include several outings and events that are included as part of our fees, to ensure that everyone participates and eliminates the need for our team managers to have to collect from our parents for each occasion. For a more detailed view of what is included in the fees and what is not please take a look at the following link (What do my Fees Include?)


Early Registration Discount: We will offer a $100 early registration discount if you register on or before August 14th. The discount is not applied to the evaluation fee. This discount will be applied to your total club fee. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to the early registration discount date and time cut off – register early! Registration Begins August 1st!
