SHIFT CHANGE UNDERWAY
Welcome to the 10th season of Ignatius Hockey in the Chicago Catholic Hockey League.
The Ignatius Hockey Club and the school administration/athletic department have reached an agreement with the management of the Chicago Blackhawk’s new training facility for a multi-year rental to house the Ignatius Hockey program. The new training center presents a unique partnership opportunity for the Saint Ignatius hockey program and you will hear more about that from our Hockey Director, Matt Smith.
An overview of the upcoming season will be provided for all hockey players and their parents on Wednesday, August 16th at 7 pm at the school. This meeting begins with all sports in the gym at 7 pm and then individual sports break out to meet at about 7:45 pm.
The Blackhawk Training Center, located at 1801 W. Jackson Blvd, is due to be completed in November. From August until November, we will rent temporary ice from the Chicago Mission at the Odeum Expo Center. Round trip bus service will be provided from school to the Odeum on school days for practice during this phase of the transition. We anticipate the Odeum practice schedule to be: Tue. 4:10-5:10pm (JV only); Wed, 4:10-5:10 (Var only); Fri, 4:30-6pm (Var and JV) complemented by an enhanced off-ice program at / after school other weekdays. Weekend game and practice ice time will be utilized at the Odeum as well.
