Saint Viator Hockey Coach, Tony Martino
2021 SPRING HOCKEY SEASON
SPRING HOCKEY FORMAT
Saint Viator Hockey will field a Varsity team and a Junior Varsity team. We will be scheduling “home and home” games with many of the top teams in the state. The total number of games may change, however we hope to schedule approximately 12 games.
The spring season will run from the beginning of April through the end of May (8 weeks). All team practices and home games will be held at the Mount Prospect Ice Arena. The games will be primarily held on weekends with no conflicts over Memorial Day weekend.
Practices: Each team will have one team practice per week, and a combined team skills session each week. Practices will be late in the evening during the week to attempt to minimize conflicts with other sports. Teams will be posted by 3/25/21.

The Saint Viator Hockey program has had a long tradition as one of the premier High School Hockey programs in the State of Illinois for over 40 years. The team plays in the Scholastic Hockey League, which is perhaps the most competitive High School Hockey league in the State, producing several State Championship teams and finalists over the years.
The Saint Viator Hockey team has had many successes including JV State Champions, 3 Varsity State Championship Finalists, 2 Scholastic Cup Championships, 2 Kennedy Cup Championships, DiCristina Cup Champions and has won the competitive Blackhawk High School Hockey Classic Tournament as well as the Loyola Thanksgiving High School Tournament.
Several of our players have also gone on to play in the junior leagues as well as at prep schools and the collegiate level (both varsity and club). Among the many goals of the program, we strive to develop all of our players on ice skills as well as teach them valuable off ice lessons and principles in an effort to assist in their development as young men and women. As a Saint Viator Hockey player, you will have the opportunity to be a part of the rich Saint Viator Hockey tradition and to represent Saint Viator and its values together with your fellow classmates.
