Ice Hockey at Urbana

Hunter Hoffman

Ice Hockey is alive and well at UHS.

“The team has 26 players this year which puts Urbana in a good situation because we have a high number of players,” said head coach Toby Huesser.  He also said that because the team has grown so much over the years we have started a JV team.

The reason the JV team is an advantage is because you can only dress 20 players for a game. Some players were going to be scratched for those games, so with the JV team those players can get more Ice time instead of watching from the stands.

“Only certain players are allowed to play JV based on age and level of maturation that you play”, said Huesser.

The season runs from November to February, which involves 12 varsity games and 8 JV games. Urbana also has a 3rd team as well that competes in the Sunday Night League; a developmental league for players to work on their skills while getting game action. All home games are held at Skate Frederick.
