Girls Varsity Hockey
Join your friends! Play High School Hockey
Evanston is one of 14 high schools that competes in the Metro Girls high school league. The Evanston girls high school team is made up of girls from a combination of schools in Evanston and on the north side of Chicago, including Lincoln Park High School, Northside College Prep High School, Roycemore and North Shore Country Day, as well as Evanston Township High School. If you are interested in playing for Evanston and your school isn't listed, please contact Carrie Ballard at
The team includes girls who have just started playing hockey, as well as girls who have been playing it for years. It's a great group of girls who compete hard and have as much fun on the ice as they do off of it!
High school hockey practices 2-3 hours a week, with 1-2 games a week, as well. Practices usually occur on weeknights and Friday evenings, with most games on weekends. The league has about 30 games a season.
Conditioning and evaluations for the girls high school team take place in August with the season beginning in early September. The high school season ends in March. There is also a 3-on-3 spring season in April and May. Registration typically opens about 4-6 weeks before each season starts. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to find out when registration opens, please email
