NoteCRHC players may be considered for double roster and play for club hockey teams in both the Northern Illinois and Central States Hockey Leagues, as well as various AAA Hockey programs. CRHC players can (and do) participate in other high school athletics, both during and after the hockey season.

Board of Directors & Community Partners - CRHC hockey programming is led by a volunteer board of directors overseeing USA hockey regulations, ice rink partnerships, community involvement with youth hockey programming, and facilitating relationships with our assigned schools.  High School hockey offers student athletes an opportunity to grow on and off the ice and experience special opportunities some of which come with the support of the Chicago Blackhawks and their facilities – Chicago Blackhawks Fifth Third Community Ice Rink for practices/games and the United Center for state championships. We are also grateful for our relationship with Johnny’s Ice House and their staff for all they do to support our players and program.

Off Ice Performance Training

Chicago Romans Hockey Club is excited to announce a new partnership with Goodman Elite Training.

As you may know, scheduling performance training for our student athletes around rink scheduling, school activities, and the personal training the athletes already do at school or with other clubs has proven to be a little bit of a challenge for CRHC. Yet, we have received feedback from coaches, parents, and players that this is a value-add service that the club should look to improve and offer. Beginning this season, CRHC is offering boys and girls off ice performance training.

If you are interested in participating in a season long training with Goodman Elite, please email Peter de Jong at and list the name of player, their phone number, and email address.

CRHC Financial Assistance Review

Chicago Romans Hockey Club (CRHC) is pleased to offer a Financial Assistance Program to players/families demonstrating financial hardship. CRHC strives to allocate approximately 10% of its annual registration/fundraising revenues to its Financial Assistance Program. CRHC offers reduced registration fees to families who otherwise may not be able to participate in our hockey program due to financial hardship.
