U16 Boys Hockey

Since its founding in 1976 the Culver Hockey program has focused on developing student-athletes to maximize their full potential as players, students and young men. Storied prep coach Al Clark, has guided the program since its inception, building a tradition strong in discipline, character development and sportsmanship.  Under Clark, Culver Academy hockey has amassed over 800 wins and produced 175 collegiate players, including 91 at the Division I level and 25 National Hockey League draft picks. Clark has not only been successful as a coach but has also acted as a trusted mentor and role model for all those who have worn the Culver jersey.

Since 1979 the Eagles have called Henderson Ice Arena their home. Located on campus the two sheet facility features locker rooms for each team, a weight room, training room and lounge. Culver teams practice for an hour and a half 4-5 times per week. The season begins in October and will conclude in either March or April. Many Culver hockey players also play other sports for the Academy in support of the programs overall philosophy of athletic development through transitional experiences.  In any given year the hockey program will have 75-90 student-athletes playing for one of the four boys teams.

The U16 team plays a nationally competitive Midget Minor schedule against the top teams in the country. U16 competes as a guest member of the HPHL and traditionally plays in a several tournaments throughout the year, which have included The Bauer Invitational, Team Illinois Thanksgiving Tournament and Omaha USHL Showcase. The U16 team focuses extensively on skill development and enhancing hockey sense. The season will culminate with a trip to the Mid-Am Regional Tournament in pursuit of a U16 USA National Championship bid.
