Evanston Hockey Mentorship Program

Evanston Hockey's mentorship program is designed to build relationships between youth and intermediate players.

Four mentors – at the 14U (Bantam) and/or HS level – will be split into pairs and assigned to a youth team for the 2017-18 season. Mentors will spend the entire season mentoring the youth players through participation in certain practices, games and off-ice activities.

The program is open to boys and girls in the house, travel or high school program. Evanston Hockey will evaluate the program at the end of the season to determine whether to expand it for future seasons.
