History and Highlights—The origins of PREP Hockey and the proud heritage we represent


PREP Hockey elects to field three teams for the fall/winter season. One playing at the Varsity level and two JV teams (Black and Gold).


PREP Hockey is a key supporter in the development of the new Illinois High School Hockey League. IHSHL is the largest high school league in Illinois and includes both familiar rivals and some of the state's best teams.

PREP also hosts the first PREP Thanksgiving Showcase Tournament which will become an annual event.


PREP launches a revamped website to provide information, schedules and pictures.


Both JV and Varsity teams advance to the “Final 8” in state playoffs.


Our JV team captures the JV Combined State title defeating a heavily-favored Rockford team.


In a relatively short time, PREP Hockey developed to the point that its on-ice success matched its player and parent enthusiasm. The JV team finished 4th in the state playoffs.


PREP Hockey becomes the official organization name; fielding a Varsity and JV team.


PREP Hockey actually started its roots when the Palatine / Elk Grove team agreed to take on some players from Rolling Meadows.
