About

The Northern Illinois Hockey League (NIHL) is the largest youth hockey league in Illinois and second largest in the U.S. The league consists of over 50 travel hockey organizations and over 300 individual teams with the mission of providing a competitive and enjoyable hockey experience for players throughout Illinois and its surrounding states. We continue to strive towards creating a variety of divisions and tiers that adhere to all different skill levels and abilities. The selection and placement of all teams is transparent and formulated by on-ice results. The goal is to keep growing players' love for hockey as the primary focus of all we do.
