Letter From the Presidents

The Northwest Chargers proudly enter our 36th year as an organization, with growth not just in numbers, but in the quality of the program offerings.  To compliment the team practices led by our first in class coaching staff, we will continue honing player’s skating skills with sessions led by Justin Nelson of Nelly’s Powerskating and goaltending skills with sessions led by Zach Drane of Good as Gould Goalie School.  We are very excited to announce that professional dryland training will now be included with our program fees.  Players should expect off-ice training sessions led by professional trainers, along with shooting and stickhandling held in the new state of the art facility next door to the Mount Prospect Ice Arena, constructed by rink owners Nicholas & Associates. 

This season we will field teams in the Central States Development Hockey League (CSDHL) at the Squirt Major, Pee Wee Minor, Pee Wee Major and Bantam Minor levels.  We will also field teams in the Northern Illinois Hockey League (NIHL). In addition, Midget teams will participate in select dates of Showcase competition in the National Junior Hockey Prospects league (NJPHL).  Please see the Tryout Registration Packet below for more information on the upcoming season.

Our Board of Directors, Hockey Directors and Coaching staff continue to collaborate and look ahead to the future.  Thank you for your commitment to our Club and our vision.  Our 36th year will be one to remember, and we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to 2018/19. 

Chris Naveja & Michele Voris
