in ice hockey the first period last 20 minutes but because of all the whistles it makes it a lot longer.
Generally it is three 15 minute periods with a 1-2 minute intermission between
In my high school and versing high schools they are 45 minutes
Hockey. also Wrestling (unless you go into over time)
It depends on the School board, or overall league that the game is played in. I played on my high school hockey team last year, and the period lengths were 15-15-15.
High school hockey is a sport, not a club.
junior hockey is the wave of the future. more premier players are moving away from prep and high school hockey because they dont have to deal with the politics associated with high school hockey. one example: a senior game. often, seniors are not the best players ona team but they get to play because it is their last game. juniors hockey eliminates age brackets and separates players the way they should be separated: by skill level.
The Minnesota State High School Hockey League. If you look at the rankings for high school hockey teams in this country on any given year, you will see that the rankings are absolutely dominated by Minnesota teams (a link to the United States High School Hockey Orgnazation's rankings is listed below). http://www.ushsho.com/ushsrank.htm Beyond having the most dominant teams in the country, the Minnesota High School Hockey League also has the largest State High School Hockey Tournament in the country. In fact, the Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament rivals the Texas State High School Football Tournament and the Indiana State High School Basketball Tournament in attendance. The tournament draws in excess of 130,000 spectators every year and tickets to the good seats are handed down from generation to generation. http://images.wikia.com/icehockey/images/0/02/2009_MN_Boys_Hockey_State_Championship.jpg
There are a few high school games scheduled outdoors every year, mainly as part of "Hockey Day in Minnesota" - which is primarily a marketing tactic by Fox Sports North. On this day, two high school outdoor games are televised, along with an indoor game. Also a Minnesota Gopher game and a Wild game are televised on that day. The vast majority of high school games are played indoors, however.
