New for the 2018-2019 Fall/Winter hockey season, Wilmette Hockey and the Wilmette Tribe are excited to announce a special education hockey pilot program!
We are looking to bring the great game of hockey to any child, aged 4-10, who presents with autism to developmental delay to behavior disorder and on through to cognitive impairment.
These sessions will focus on skill building exercises and activities. There will be no hockey scrimmages or formally constructed games during the clinics. Depending on the disabilities involved, lighting, noise level, and equipment can be adjusted on a per session/participant basis. The number of participants will be capped at 10 per session. For Spanish dominant participants instruction will be provided in Spanish.
We have created a brand new Apparel store for the WHA.
Huge new catalog of apparel: Performance Tees, Hoodies, Headwear, Outerwear, Polos, Backpacks, Pants, Blankets and more.

Any Wall Street Journal business client who had its digital ads planned by Brian Keane just a few years ago may be surprised at what he’s doing now.
Keane has gone from crafting ideas for businesses to crafting them for individuals on a sheet of ice. And those individuals just happen to be Patrick Kane and other NHL players.

If your kid could play every minute of every game, you would love it. If they never came off the field, court or rink you would be in sports paradise. If your kid plays a great game and your team loses, you can live with the loss. It wasn’t your kid's fault."
