Sharks High School Hockey League Fall/Winter JV 2019-20
The 2019-20 Junior Varsity (Fall/Winter) Season, which runs late September through March, starts with approximately three evaluation sessions in which Sharks Ice Staff Coaches evaluate players to determine which of our divisions suits them best.
The JV league is made up of three divisions: Junior Varsity - A (JVA), Junior Varsity - B (JVB) and Junior Varsity - C (JVC).
JV-A and JV-B are full check, while JV-C is non-check for more novice level players. The three divisions allow the Sharks High School League to form teams in appropriate skill levels to create a competitive and fun atmosphere for all.
Sharks Ice also looks to collaborate schools from the same geographical areas to form teams. Most games will be played on weekends, with an occasional weeknight game. Teams out of the Oakland Ice Center will play a majority of their games in Oakland with the possibility of 3-4 games at Solar4America Ice at Fremont and/or Solar4America Ice at San Jose.
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.
