Sharks High School Hockey League Fall/Winter JV 2016 & Spring Varsity 2017

General Information

Sharks Ice is proud to bring you the 17th season of the Sharks High School Hockey League, the premier high school ice hockey league in Northern California. We offer two separate divisions, a Fall Junior Varsity (September - March) and a Spring Varsity (March - June) division. Unlike traditional high school sports, where Junior Varsity and Varsity are decided by age, our divisions are grouped exclusively by skill level. The Junior Varsity division will be made up of recreation/in-house and B travel level players that will be separated into three subdivisions (JV-A, JV-B, & JV-C) based on skill, with JV-C being non-check. The Varsity division will be comprised of tier and travel level players. No matter what your skill level, we have a team for you.

All players must be currently enrolled in a Northern California High School and must provide all of their own HECC approved equipment. Oakland Based teams will practice and play home games at the Oakland Ice Center and play away games at Sharks Ice at San Jose & Fremont. Most games will take place on weekends with an occasional game being played on a week night.

First Practice for all teams is Monday, October 10, 2016 @ 6:30-7:30pm.  The Devils and Dragons will practice every Monday 6:30-7:30pm.  Except November 21, December 19 & 26.

Ice Hockey is a contact sport, thus requiring proper equipment to keep everybody safe. All players need to have the following HECC approved equipment before they take the ice:

  • Hockey helmet with full cage
  • Shoulder pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Ice hockey pants
  • Athletic supporter with cup for males and pelvic protector for females
  • Shin pads
  • Ice hockey skates
  • Ice hockey gloves
  • Hockey stick
  • Mouth guard (required for Bantams and older, but recommended for all age divisions)

The Oakland Ice Center Pro Shop carries all of the above items. The staff can help fit your player with proper equipment to make sure they are ready to go. In addition to the above equipment, a light-weight jersey and ice hockey socks should be purchased to wear for practices.
