Our Program
St. Joseph High School Ice Hockey is now in its 29th year of operation.  Our program provides the opportunity for over 40 players each season to compete in the sport of ice hockey. We are proud to have two players selected by the NHL and overall more than 40 percent of our players have continued their ice hockey careers at the collegiate level, some attaining NCAA Division 1 scholarships (see list below).
We place a significant emphasis on people and hockey skill development via a fully integrated program. By fully integrated, we mean a program that is well-connected not only between varsity and junior varsity but also with the teachers, guidance counselors, and administration of the school.
