Due to the high spread of Covid-19 in our community and for the safety of our hockey families,
we will not be holding any public Open Skating at this time.

Welcome to Shawano Hockey League

The Shawano Hockey League (SHL) serves girls and boys ages 4 to 14 from Shawano and  surrounding school districts.  SHL is a Division 3 member association of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association in region 3.

Shawano Hockey League is a non-profit 501(c)(3), 100% volunteer organization. Parents manage the rink and the hockey organization on a volunteer basis, which keeps our player fees much lower than neighboring associations.

We invite you to join Shawano Lightning Hockey. We hope your child will have a fun learning experience while playing an exciting sport! If you have any questions please feel free to  Contact Us.
