Under the approval of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association, (WAHA), the WEHL was founded in 2006 to provide upper level high school players the opportunity to further develop their skills and compete against like talented players. The goal is through a “before and after” season to better prepare players for their upcoming high school season. The WEHL provides excellent coaching staffs who clearly understand the objective of developing players in a competitive and learning environment. To compliment the excellent coaching, competitive practices and league play, the WEHL provides exposure to its players with a fall invitational tournament which includes all WEHL teams along with top level Tier II teams from throughout the country. Additionally, the WEHL Board of Directors is in constant contact with the U-16 and 18 Team Wisconsin representatives providing them with information on potential players for their teams.
As the WEHL prepares to enter its fourth year of play, we have some very exciting news for the upcoming 2009-2010 season. The WEHL is pleased to announce the addition Girls to the program. The Girls objectives will be very similar as the U-14, U-16, and 18 teams, with the assurance that all players will return to their respective youth hockey organizations for the 2009-2010 year.
Having a “before and after” season format allows the WEHL to compliment, not compete, for players at the youth hockey or high school level. So, if you are a Wisconsin youth or high school player who wants to take your game to the next level, the WEHL is just the place to take that next step!
