The Team Wisconsin U19 team finished fall, 2023 with an impressive 8-2-2 record in the 19U Red Division of the HS Elite League. TW U19 aims to ride the momentum of first place in the HS Elite League into this weekend’s WAHA Tier 1 Playoffs.

TW U19 Tier 1 Playoff Schedule at Blue Line Ice Center of Fond du Lac

The winner of the WAHA Tier 1 playoff advances to the USA Hockey Central District Regionals/Kohlman Cup hosted back in Fond du Lac March 15-17. Central District Regionals are named Kohlman Cup in honor of the late Don Kohlman, a Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame inductee that dedicated his life to serving hockey.

“This group of student athletes have had a lot of success because they’ve done the right things on and off the ice. Their work ethics are second to none and that is why they will have success at the next level.” Brian Poshak, TW U19 Head Coach.
