The overall purpose of the ISHL is to promote high school hockey and create new teams throughout the Houston and surrounding area with the goal of obtaining 100%participation from the named school as quickly as possible. The ISHL strives to offer the high school ice hockey experience to as many high school athletes as possible. The program is designed to have teams comprised solely of players that attend the designated school. We realize that because high school hockey is still relatively new to Houston the concept of having each team comprised 100% of players from one specific school is unrealistic. Therefore, if roster slots remain after all players from the individual schools are placed, then players from other schools in the district as well as other school districts will be placed. The ISHL is committed to the establishment and promotion of a premier high school ice hockey program in Houston. The ISHL conforms to all school district regulations as closely as possible, including the No Pass/No Play rule. The ISHL encourages and supports each team to strive to obtain and maintain official club status through their respective school administration as quickly as possible.
