Under the approval of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association(WAHA), the WEHL was founded in 2006 to give upper level high school players the opportunity to further develop their skills while competing against players of the same skill level. The goal is to better prepare players for their upcoming high school season.

A letter from the commmissioner
With the start of the High School Hockey Season underway I thought it appropriate to share a brief overview of the fall WEHL Season. Thru the efforts of many I feel confident in expressing the WEHL had resurgence in organization, communication, and competitiveness across all our age groups. Beginning last January at our WEHL Board meeting and ongoing efforts throughout the spring we recruited new members and ideas along with re-energizing existing members who all collectively contributed to our success this fall.
The U14 Group again proved to be extremely competitive and in many areas of the state it allows higher talented players their first chance to play with and against players of equal talent. With excellent coaching and competition these players are better prepared for their upcoming youth hockey or first high school season.
Traditionally and still our largest age group the U16 Group had 8 teams participating in league play with all teams notching multiple victories. Coaches at this age level agreed our overall talent was improved from last year and many of the players are on the cusp of taking the next step in competing to make Team Wisconsin. Our end of the year tournament hosted in Onalaska showcased a number of very close games and highlighted play of some very talented players.
The U18 Group while limited to five teams offered excellent competition to those wanting the opportunity to bring their game to another level in preparing for their upcoming high school season. Many multi-sport athletes who competed in this division which if they chose to focus strictly on hockey would have likely made Team Wisconsin. In the end the talent level was very good and gave those who followed the league an insight as to who to watch in the upcoming WIAA Hockey Season.
Our Girls Group provided our biggest challenge in getting players to commit to participate in a fall season. Not for lack of effort by numerous individuals we were only able to field 3 teams but overall play was very competitive. Work is already in progress for the Girls Group for 2014 as what steps need to be taken to increase numbers and provide a product equivalent to the interest of the players.
In closing I want to thank all the players and parents for choosing to participate in the WEHL, it is our goal as an organization to provide elite players the ability to; play in a pre-season league, allow the student athlete the ability to participate in a fall high school sport, keep costs to a minimum, have limited travel, and provide experienced talented coaching. To all WEHL Board Members, Coaches, and the countless volunteers thank you for your ongoing selfless efforts in improving hockey in Wisconsin by contributing your talents to the WEHL.
