The Francis Howell Hockey Club is a not for profit organization whose purpose is to provide high school hockey opportunities to 7th – 12th grade students who reside within the Francis Howell High School district.
The Francis Howell Hockey Club is a non-school sponsored sport. This means that other than playing under the Vikings name and logo, the school does not contribute to, nor oversee the operation of the Club. However, playing under the Vikings name requires that the Club operate and conduct itself in a manner that reflects positively upon the school.
The Francis Howell Hockey Club participates in the Mid-States High School Club Hockey Association (MSCHA), which is governed by Missouri Hockey, Inc., and affiliated with USA Hockey, Inc.
The goal of the Francis Howell Hockey Club is to create a positive and fun environment for players, stressing fundamentals, improvement, and winning and losing as a team. Players will learn to respect their parents, teammates, coaches, referees and opposing teams. They will work toward excellence but not perfection. They must always recognize the efforts of their teammates and work to make our weakest link better. They will learn to appreciate, respect and love the game of hockey and play it the way it was meant to be played.
If you wish to receive information about our program and activities, please register and indicate your players birth year and grade.
Evaluations take place in late August. Pre-season practices take place in September and October. All ice hockey players within the Francis Howell High School District grades 7-12 are welcome to attend. Ice times and dates will be posted on the web site when they become available.
