The Blackhawks Ice Hockey Club was formed in 1947 and played at the famed St. Moritz rink in St. Kilda. The club has a storied history as one of Victoria’s oldest club and has featured many household names of the game who have represented Victoria and Australia over the years, including at the Squaw Valley Olympics in 1960.
To read more about the club visit the History page.
The primary competition for ice hockey in Victoria, in the upcoming 2016 season, the Blackhawks will feature four teams – Premier A, Premier Reserve, Premier C (Div1) & Premier C (Div2).
Premier A & Reserve are both full contact Men’s leagues while Premier C1 is a non-checking limited contact league and Premier C2 is non-contact. Both the Premier C divisions are open to men & women.
IHV operates a summer league that is open to players not actively playing in winter competition. IHV has several criteria for participants to meet before they are eligible to participate in the Summer Season.
In the 2015/16 summer season, will be a 15 game competition, with 3 grading games prior to the commencement of competition.
This summer we are fielding 5 teams. The Chiefs (Div 1*), The Woverines (Div 2*), The 47’s (Div 3*), The Young Guns (Div 4*) and The Bombs (Div 4*).
The summer season is now viewed by IHV as a grooming location for future winter players and we are encouraging our players to improve and play at the highest level possible. While some players have formed strong units in the teams in lower divisions, we are now looking to promote the higher skilled players to improve the standard of the higher divisions. There will be tryout sessions for all grades as we try yo get players in a division that suits their skill level.
Anyone interested in a try out should contact Jarrod or Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org
(* tentative gradings pending outcome of pre-season grading games)
