of our operations as Illinois responds to the COVID-19 health crisis. 

Spring & COVID-19 Update 3/17/20

Dear Phantoms Families:

I hope that you are well and adjusting to our (hopefully temporary!) "new normal." Living with the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak has been a new and challenging development for all of us. We appreciate your patience and support as we navigate this situation and how it will affect the Club. We remain committed to making educated decisions with the guidance of medical professionals and our governing hockey bodies. 

We are currently exploring all options with respect to altering and/or postponing the spring program to ensure that we are acting in a manner that puts the health and safety of our members first. We will continue to accept your Step 2 registrations as we have every intention of running a program when it is safe.  If that proves impossible, all registration and tryout fees will be refunded.

We miss seeing our Phantoms families, but we will stay in touch with you via our newsletter and social media. Please visit our website for future updates and/or developments.

We appreciate your commitment to the Club. Support each other and help your friends and neighbors.
