The WVHL upholds the same academic eligibility and attendance requirements as sanctioned Varsity club sports in Oregon and Washington. Mandatory grade checks are conducted during the season.
Many schools in the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area are now recognizing the students representing their schools in the sport of ice hockey by awarding Varsity Letters. The goal is to grow the sport of ice hockey so that eventually, individual schools will field teams.
The WVHL also recognizes our athletes with academic achievement (3.0 and above) on the WVHL Student Athlete Honor Roll during the season.
WVHL players are provided with guidance and support advocating for recognition as a Varsity athlete at their schools. Momentum is growing for granting these awards, as our athletes are demonstrating conduct and achievement worthy of this honor on and off the ice.
