Who We Are..

WE ARE THE NORTHPORT HUNTINGTON ICE HOCKEY CLUB, NHIHC. WE ARE A NON-PROFIT CLUB ESTABLISHED TO PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT ATHLETES TO PLAY HIGH SCHOOL ICE HOCKEY. WE OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS FROM THE NORTHPORT/EAST NORTHPORT, HARBORFIELDS AND HUNTINGTON SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SUFFOLK COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY LEAGUE (SCHSHL).

THE SCHSHL IS A COMPETITVE LEAGUE WITH THREE DIVISIONS. THERE IS A VARSITY, JUNIOR VARSITY AND A FRESHMAN DIVISION. PLAYERS MUST BE AT LEAST 12 YEARS OLD TO COMPETE AT THE FRESHMAN LEVEL; GRADES 9-12 FOR JV AND VARSITY. ALL SCHSHL GAMES ARE PLAYED AT THE RINX IN HAUPPAUGE. ALL NHIHC PRACTICES ARE AT THE TOWN OF HUNTINGTON CLARK GILLIES DIX HILLS RINK ON MONDAY EVENINGS WITH ADDITIONAL WEDNESDAY PRACTICES.

THE NHIHC WILL USUALLY HAVE TRYOUTS IN MAY OR JUNE FOR THE NEXT FALL/WINTER SEASON. TEAMS WILL BE SELECTED BY THE ENTIRE COACHING STAFF BASED ON THE TRYOUTS. THE FALL/WINTER SEASON WILL CONSIST OF AT LEAST 20 GAMES AND THE POSSIBILITY OF PLAYOFFS. THERE IS AN ALL-STAR GAME FOR EACH LEVEL.

WE WELCOME NEW PLAYERS AND, OF COURSE, VOLUNTEERS TO HELP IN ANY WAY THAT THEY CAN. WE WILL CONTINUE TO NEED COACHES AND BOARD MEMBERS TO ALLOW FOR THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY OF PLAYING COMPETITIVE HIGH SCHOOL ICE HOCKEY WITH CLASSMATES AND OTHER LOCAL TOWN OF HUNTINGTON STUDENT ATHLETES.
