Wilmette Braves Hockey - State's Only Program Placing Teams in All 3 NIHL Elite Divisions

The Wilmette Braves are Illinois' only youth hockey program placing one team in each of the three Northern Illinois Hockey League's Elite Division competition brackets.

No other Illinois program delivered teams at all three levels - Squirt, Pee Wee and Bantam.

Squirt 1, Head Coach Adam Cheris, Pee Wee 1, Head Coach Brad McMahon, and Bantam 1, Head Coach Brian Keane, teams combined for a 22-2 seeding round record with a +82 goal differential during the seeding round.  Additionally, Wilmette Braves Bantam 2, led by Head Coach Sean Keane, jumped up one rung to the Bantam Gold NIHL competition level.

"This is a great club-wide achievement that speaks to coaching from top to bottom" says Wilmette Hockey Coaching Director Tom Finks.  "We are successfully introducing players to the game through our Wilmette Tribe program.  Late bloomers are developing into top team players.  We have great athletes that are becoming great goaltenders and our top players are staying with the club because they are developing as players and enjoying the program culture."

Wilmette Tribe and Braves Hockey is a community-based youth hockey program serving the area for 52 years. The program offers House League hockey for newcomers or recreation players. There are 15 competitive travel teams, including Girls only programs.

To join the program, visit (ages 6-8) or (ages 9-14).
