About The Program
The Watchung Hills Ice Hockey program has continuously grown over the past 20 seasons. The program was established in 2001 and has helped groom a number of student athletes into respectable young men and women. The program has been to the NJSIAA State Quarterfinals 4 times and the State Championship twice since being established. Furthermore, the program has captured 1 Van Cott Cup Championship, 1 Essex County Holiday Tournament Championship and 1 Varsity Classic Championship. The program currently has a Varsity and JV program with more than 40 student athletes involved in the program.
Entering the program's 20th season, the Varsity team is returning all but 1 player from last season, with a large pool of talented incoming freshman. The Warriors will look to use their experience and depth to their advantage this season in their goal to capture a Skyland Cup Championship.
The JV enters the year with a new look of incoming players who have the ability to compete game after game. The program looks to build off of the progress made last season to improve their win total and develop future varsity players.
