Spring Hockey Opportunities

Spring hockey is right around the corner!  We would like to make you aware of some outside opportunities for current and prospective New Trier hockey players to skate.  Consistent with prior years, Coaches Melton and Malstrom will be forming teams to compete in spring hockey leagues.  They will decide the total number of spring teams and the placement of players on those teams based on overall interest.  A player's placement on a particular spring team is solely at the Coaches' discretion and has no impact on their placement the following fall.


These are independent programs run by each coach.  They are in no way affiliated with the New Trier Hockey Club and are therefore not covered by the Club's insurance or operating policies.  Participation in these programs is voluntary and does not impact a player's position within the New Trier Hockey Club. 


Please see below for programs offered.

NTHC raises $12,730 for the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation!!!

Despite the COVID pandemic New Trier Hockey Players rallied together (social distancing and masks in all)  to continue an 11-year tradition. New Trier Hockey players enjoyed a beautiful fall day scattered across the local community in an effort to fight pediatric cancer. Due to social distancing guidelines collection day locations were cut in half. Players from all six teams – Green, Blue, White, Gray, Junior Varsity 1 and Junior Varsity 2,  - helped to raise both funds and awareness on behalf of the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Cash donations, both collected at various local merchants throughout the community, as well as an online campaign, totaled $12,730 this year (and over $67,000 to date). The money raised will help to make Bear Hugs and other great programs for kids and their families fighting cancer, possible across Illinois.


Thank you again to those NT Hockey families that supported our endeavor and to the local business which graciously allowed us to solicit funds outside of their venues.

NTHC Season Kick-Off Slideshow

2020-2021 season tryout info updated on 8/20

The New Trier Hockey Board and coaches take the health and safety of all of the players very seriously. The following procedures and policies are based on CDC guidelines, policies from other similar organizations and input from medical and legal professionals. While these procedures and policies have been put in place to do our best to maintain an environment where our players and coaches can participate in the sport they love as safely as possible, we can only, as an organization, attempt to mitigate risk – we cannot eliminate the risk associated with COVID-19. Ultimately, as always, the players, with the advice and consent of their families, choose to play at their own risk of sustaining injury and, now, of also contracting diseases like COVID-19. Players and families will choose to participate at their own risk. Please note that this is a fluid situation and thus our policies and procedures may change during the season.




  • No parents are allowed inside the rink – the tryouts are closed as they have been for many years.
  • All tryouts are at the Winnetka Ice Arena. The document below details Winnetka’s Phase 4 policies which we will adhere to. 
  • All coaches and volunteers will have a temperature check and be screened before each tryout.
  • Players must check in via the rink-designated door (see Winnetka guidelines doc) of the arena every night for temperature check and screening – all players must wear a face mask until they are getting on to the ice.
  • All players must bring their own water bottle with their name on it.
  • All non-goalie players are to dress at home with the exception of their skates:
    • Two locker rooms will be open for each tryout group for putting on skates only. Players may leave their belongings in that locker room. After the tryout is done, they will remove their skates in their locker rooms, with masks on and staying socially distant, for skate removal only. They will then exit the rink at the designated exit (see Winnetka guidelines doc).
    • Goalies do not have to come to the rink dressed – they will have a separate dressing area.
    • Returning players must bring both game jerseys to each tryout.
    • New players will get a tryout jersey that they will need to keep until the end of tryouts. Once a new player’s tryouts are complete, the practice jersey must be turned in to Lapels Dry Cleaners, 819 Ridge Rd. The NTHC will pay for the cleaning and retrieve the jerseys from Lapels. If a tryout jersey is not returned to Lapels cleaners by Wednesday, Sep. 2nd or there will be a $50 replacement charge.
  • If your son has a fever of 100.4 or higher when they arrive at the arena, or if they do not pass the screening, you will be contacted to come collect him. They will wait separately from the rest of the players with a mask on until you arrive.
  • If your son feels sick at any time during the tryout process, they must tell a coach immediately. Please reassure your player that the coaches will contact you to discuss when he can return. We all need to make sure that our players feel that it is best to tell someone instead of trying to “play through” the discomfort or any symptoms. The coaches will err on the side of caution and expect all of the players and families will do the same.
  • While the symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath, aches, chills, headache, sore throat or a loss of taste and/or smell) can all be symptoms of a cold, or allergies, the risk to the community is great enough that we encourage you to keep them home. If this is the case, please reach out to Bob Melton and Michelle Paul. Again, NTHC will work with you on when your player can return and all information will be kept confidential.
  • Historically, the club has held a mandatory all-club meeting on the morning of the first day of tryouts. Since the all-club meeting will not be held this Saturday, the slide show, tryout groups, and tryout times will be posted on the NTHC web site home page on Friday evening.
  • Every night following the last tryout skate, the tryout groups for and times for the next day will be posted on the NTHC web site. After the weekend, do not expect your skater to skate every night.
  • Starting on Sunday night, team selections will be posted along with the next tryout groups and the Green team will be the first team announced. 


For the regular season:


  • Once practices start, the temperature check and screening will be done at home by a parent. Before each practice, SportsEngine will send an email to each family which will collect the player’s current temperature and the answers to the screening questions. If a player’s temperature is 100.4 or higher, or if the screening questions are not passed, the player must stay home from practice. A coach from the player’s team will contact the family to discuss return to play.
  • If your son feels sick while on the ice they must tell a coach immediately. Please reassure your player that the coaches will contact you to discuss when he can return. We all need to make sure that our players feel that it is best to tell someone instead of trying to “play through” the discomfort. The coaches will err on the side of caution and expect all of the players and families will do the same.
  • Also, if your son was not feeling well during the day of a tryout, but seems better by practice, please also practice caution. While the symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath, aches, chills, headache, sore throat or a loss of taste and/or smell) can all be symptoms of a cold, or allergies, the risk to the community is great enough that we encourage you to keep them home. If this is the case, please reach out to Bob Melton and Michelle Paul. Again, NTHC will work with you on when your player can return and all information will be kept confidential.
  • If your player tests positive for COVID-19, the following are the minimum conditions that must be met before he can return to the ice:
    • You should email your player’s head coach and Michelle Paul, Registrar – all information will be kept confidential.
    • He must wait at least 10 days from the first sign of symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, aches, chills, headache, sore throat or a loss of taste and/or smell) AND
    • He must be free of fever for 24 hours without any fever reducing medication AND
    • He must provide a note from his physician or a healthcare professional stating it is safe for him to return to the ice
  • If a family member or a person in close contact with your player tests positive:
    • You should email your player’s head coach and Michelle Paul, Registrar – all information will be kept confidential.
    • Your player should stay home for 14 days and watch for symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, aches, chills, headache, sore throat or a loss of taste and/or smell)
    • You are encouraged to take your player to a medical professional for additional guidance
  • If a teammate tests positive:
    • You will be notified that a case has been found on your team. All personal information will be kept confidential. You will be advised further depending on the situation but it is always recommended that you watch for symptoms in your player.
  • These return to ice policies are subject to change.
  • For this season, in addition to practice jerseys being provided to each player, they will also receive practice pinneys (for line changes throughout the season) and individual water bottles that they will need to label with their name and jersey number. There will be no swapping of jerseys or sharing of water bottles.
  • Again, while we will attempt to create a safe environment for players and coaches, each family must understand the risks and uncertainty we are all faced with and then decide if they are comfortable participating in the sport of hockey.


Non-COVID Season Info:


  • The Club is working closely with USA Hockey, AHAI, the leagues, and the rinks to get league play going as soon as possible. In the meantime, the coaches are working on ways to ensure that the players have fun, are challenged and will be ready to be competitive as soon as league play is permitted.
  • Our regular “non-ice” events such as Picture Night and Bear Necessities are still under consideration. We will provide you with updates as we determine how we may undertake these activities.
  • Upon selection and placement to a team, all players will have paid both a tryout fee and the first installment of the annual player fees. Given the likely changes throughout the year, NTHC will consider what adjustments, if any, may be appropriate to remaining player fees. However, all players and parents are notified that with the start of the season, NTHC will have financial obligations to satisfy.
  • Similarly, given the fluidity of the season, each team’s schedules will be subject to change according to their league’s agenda. We will do our best to keep ice times consistent for each team and to post schedules in a timely fashion. However, we will have to remain flexible to accommodate changes as they arise.


The New Trier Hockey Club is looking forward to the season, no matter what shape it may take!

On January 11th the White team came together to support Bernies's Book Bank in their mission to support communities in need. Players each donated bags of books and spent the morning organizing and packing books that were sent to at-risk children in the Chicagoland area.


Shortly before Christmas, the Grey team adopted a family from Northwest Settlement House. The family included a single mom and 4 children, two boys, 12 and 8 and two girls , 6 and 4. They bought board games, art supplies, playing cards, lots of clothes and shoes. They were excited to find a ‘Baby Alive’ for the youngest daughter! They also got sheets, towels and house supplies for the mom. Then they wrapped and labeled all the gifts while enjoying pizza and football! 


New Trier Gray has chosen to serve  breakfast monthly at A Just Harvest soup kitchen in Rogers Park. Roughly 200 people are served meals daily, 7 days a week. Each month four Gray players provide a hot meal for children and adults. It's a humbling experience for the players to cook and serve meals to people from all walks of life, who are confronted with the choice between paying the rent, putting food on the table or paying for medication. Congratulations to the Gray Team and Alison Walker for serving this organization.  For more info:


New Trier Junior Varsity Hockey team and The Winnetka Schools collected 763 pounds of Halloween candy which were donated to McClellan Orthodontic’s Annual Halloween Candy Drive.

Seniors on Sleds a huge success!

Last Sunday, March 19th, the New Trier Boys and Girls Hockey Clubs hosted an inaugural exhibition sled hockey game at the North Shore Ice Arena to raise awareness and funds for the Great Lakes Adaptive Sport Association (GLASA).   New Trier Hockey’s seniors and the GLASA Falcons players entertained the fans with their spirited play and athleticism.  After the game, many New Trier players talked about how much fun it was to play sled hockey, and how hard it was compared to their more familiar game.  Those in attendance were impressed with GLASA’s mission and the wide-ranging programs it offers for disabled athletes.  (Please visit for more information about this incredible organization.)  The family-oriented fundraiser, which included Blackhawk Alumni, Chuck-A-Puck contest, Silent Auction, Raffle & Bake Sale, raised $8400 for GLASA and created lasting memories for all participants. 

The success of this event would have been possible without the enthusiastic attendance of our fans and families, the help of our many volunteers, and the support of our generous sponsors: Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Blackhawk Alumni, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Wilmette Bike Shop, @properties, Lou Malnati’s, Stormy’s Tavern and Grille, The Grand Foods, Spynergy Cycling Studio, Creative Promotional Products, Smith Design Co., Eggemeyer and Graham Orthodontics, Oak Technical Sales, Face Forward Medical Spa, and the Baillos, Graves, Marshall, Melgard, Mulhern, Pavlopoulos, Peter Raith, Snow, Solberg, Talbot, Tragos and Womsley families.  Thank you!

Thank you also to the staff at GLASA, and the GLASA Falcons players, for making this event possible and showcasing the amazing sport of sled hockey!

NTHC Raises $16,500 to Support Fight Against Pediatric Cancer

In what has become a Homecoming weekend tradition, New Trier hockey players once again joined forces with the local communities in the fight against pediatric cancer.  On Saturday, October 15th, players from the boys’ and girls’ teams spread out in Winnetka, Glencoe, Wilmette and Northfield to collect donations for the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.  Established in 1992 and named in memory of eight-year-old Barrett "Bear" Krupa, who died after a courageous five and a half year battle with Wilms Tumor, the Foundation’s mission is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it.  Through its “Bear Discoveries” and “Bear Hugs” programs, the Foundation funds cutting-edge research and provides for the immediate needs of the children and families battling the disease. 

New Trier Hockey’s efforts on October 15th, combined with an online challenge (won by the Blue Team!), raised a remarkable total of $16,500, which easily surpassed last year’s record total.  One hundred percent of the money collected went directly to Bear Necessities and will be used to brighten the lives of Chicago area pediatric cancer patients and to provide essential support for their families. 

As in prior years, the success of this year’s fundraising event would not have been possible without the generous support of residents in the New Trier communities, players’ families and friends, and the following local businesses where players collected donations on October 15th:  Dunkin Donuts in Glencoe, the Wilmette French Market, the Grand Food Centers in Winnetka and Glencoe, No Man’s Land Pizza & Grill in Wilmette, Once Upon a Bagel, Panera Bread in Wilmette, Ridgeview Grill, Starbucks in Winnetka, Glencoe and Wilmette, Three Tarts Bakery and Café, and Walker Bros. Original Pancake House in Wilmette.  Please remember to support those who support the Club and its philanthropic activities!


The New Trier Hockey Club provides student-athletes with opportunities to participate at the highest level of high school hockey in an environment which promotes development of skills, teamwork, sportsmanship, and competitiveness, while recognizing a commitment to academic success.
