The goals of the WEHL are clear:

  • exposure to Team Wisconsin

The WEHL coaching staffs are directed and understand the objective of developing players in a competitive and learning environment.

To complement the excellent coaching, competitive practices and league play, the WEHL provides exposure to its players with age group specific invitational tournaments, which includes all WEHL teams along with top level Tier II teams from throughout the country, and an opportunity for returning U18 age players to be selected to participate in a spring Elite Exposure Tournament.

Additionally, the WEHL Board of Directors and coaches are in constant contact with the U-14, 16 and 18 Team Wisconsin representatives providing them with information on potential players for their teams.
