Triangle High School Hockey League Announces Inaugural Season

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–It is with great pleasure that the Triangle High School Hockey League (THSHL) announces its inaugural season. High school hockey has been a longstanding dream for student athletes in the Triangle area; thanks to the explosive growth of youth hockey across North Carolina, that dream is about to become reality.

The THSHL season will run from March 15 to early June, with a championship playoff game to end the season. Games will be held at Invisalign Arena in Morrisville and Polar Ice Wake Forest.

“This was a dream started by a few students and me last year,” said THSHL President Steven Ismaili. “We started with one single game, and it has ballooned into 18 teams and hundreds of participating student athletes. With the support of all of the local hockey organizations, local rink owners and managers, sponsors, and volunteers we were able to finally make this dream a reality!”

The Triangle High School Hockey League is grateful for the support from our community and local businesses. Our sponsors have made it possible for high school hockey players to afford the opportunity to represent their schools.

The inaugural season sponsor is CK’s Plumbing & Backflow, LLC, a locally owned and operated company that offers quality service plumbing featuring experienced water heater installation in Wake County and the surrounding areas. When you pick CK’s Plumbing & Backflow, you can trust that your needs will be taken care of at a reasonable price.

CK’s Plumbing & Backflow has been a longtime supporter of youth hockey in the area. Many employees of the family-owned business have children participating in local youth hockey organizations. Owner Chris Kousis says he loves watching youth hockey, especially his son Alex’s team. The highlight of his season was winning the state championship and earning a trip to Dallas for the upcoming USA Hockey National Championship tournament.

“All of us at CK’s Plumbing are huge fans of hockey. We are happy to be a sponsor of the THSHL because we want to see the sport grow and succeed,” said Kousis.

Turnberry Solutions, Harrison Fence, and Raleigh Orthodontics are the partner sponsors for THSHL’s first season.

“High school hockey is about shared dreams and relentless passion,” said Rob Harrison, owner of Harrison Fence. “We love seeing the sport continue to grow in our area and create more opportunities for teenage players. We are a hockey family with three teenagers and have seen firsthand how victories are forged in sweat and determination. Hockey is more than just a sport, but a journey of resilience, friendship, hard work and memories. These values, cultivated through hockey, serve as a foundation for the skills needed in business and in life. Harrison Fence is proud to help instill these skills in our community’s youth sports.”
