Summer Ice Update
7-8 Graders: The last summer ice will occur Tuesday August 7, 2018 at 7:10 pm. Thanks for your hard work this summer and we look forward to seeing you in our colors in the future!
9-12 Graders: We will have a second practice on August 8 at 7:45 pm and continue to have two practices a week throughout August (for players who accept spot on team).
Summer Skates will begin June 5th at Chiller Easton. Northeast Storm pays for the ice, so there is no cost to participate. Most of the skates occur on Tuesdays at 7:10 pm, but check the calendar for specifics. Skates will take place once a week through July, then occur twice a week in August leading up to tryouts.
Summer sessions will include off-ice conditioning (more details to come on exact timing before or after on-ice sessions).
Participation in the skates is optional, but strongly encouraged given the other teams in our league are involved in similar programs. Summer skates are open to any player residing in one of the Storm school districts entering grades 7-12 in the Fall of 2018.

USA Hockey Rules Changes for 2018 Season
USA Hockey has made some changes to some rules, as they do every 3 years or so. Follow the link below for a summary of the new rules.
The GCHSCHL is now the OSHL!
Over the summer of 2017 our league has undergone a name change. The Greater Columbus High School Club Hockey League is now called the Ohio Scholastic Hockey League. The change was made for various reasons, including wanting the ability to recognize the continued importance of education as well as recognizing the fact that we have teams in the league outside of the Columbus area.
