Glenview Stars Hockey Travel Program
Since 1973, the Glenview Stars Hockey Association has been one of the most respected and successful travel hockey programs in North America. The hundreds of banners decorating the walls of the Glenview Ice Center are a significant testament to the development of our young athletes. In addition to hockey skills, the Stars are dedicated to fostering each player's character and appreciation of this great sport.
Glenview Stars Hockey offers the opportunities for the developing hockey player to play competitive travel hockey from September through February. During the course of the season, you can expect to have upwards of 50 practices, 30 league games, skills clinics and the opportunity to travel with your team to hockey tournaments both locally and out of state. All tournament participation is decided on a team-by-team basis, voted on by each team’s parents. The Stars will continue to field teams in NIHL at the Bronze, Silver and Gold & Elite level with Squirt Major, Pee Wee Minor and Bantam Minor participating in the Central States Developmental Hockey League. Players will be selected for the AA, A & B level teams during tryouts by team coaches from the Squirt B to the Midget levels.
2015-2016 Coaching Staff
With our energized coaching staff, we are ready for an exciting season. Under the coordination of our Hockey Director, Sylvain Turcotte, we have assembled the finest group of coaches in the state! Tim Benz and the Ultimate Athlete staff will lead the Glenview Stars Skills Development Program on ice and dryland training sessions. Our goalies will be instructed by the Wendell Young Goaltending School.
Conditioning Clinics and Tryouts
Conditioning clinics will be held Saturday, Aug. 22 through Sunday, Aug. 30. Tryouts for all regular travel teams will take place between Tuesday, Sept. 1 and Saturday, Sept. 12. Players are selected and placed on teams via a tryout process. If selected, a Stars travel hockey player is expected to attend all regularly scheduled practices and games. This time commitment is critical to the growth of the player and success of the team. Each Stars travel hockey player can plan on skating approximately 3-5 times per week with their team. In addition, each team may compete in 1-3 out-of-town tournaments per season.
Travel Hockey Leagues
Glenview Stars teams play in two different travel hockey leagues. Our top Squirt Major (2005), PeeWee Minor (2004) and Bantam Minor (2002) teams will play in the Central States Developmental Hockey League, while most of our teams will continue with our tradition of playing competitive travel hockey in the Northern Illinois Hockey League.
