Hockey in the Bay Area, as well as throughout California, has seen immense growth within the past decade. When the HP High School Hockey League made its debut in 2000 at Sharks Ice, four teams comprised of players with no specific school affiliation made up the entire league. In 2010, the league grew to 25 teams with players traveling from as far north as Santa Rosa, Salinas to the south, Stockton to the east and Santa Cruz to the west.

In 2012, the Northern California High School Hockey League was formed from high schools in the Bay Area who were able to form teams comprised of their own students. Archbishop Mitty, Bellarmine, Valley Christian, and Cardinal Newman (Santa Rosa) are the participating charter members.

In March of 2012, Bellarmine, Valley Christian, J Serra, and Santa Margarita competed in the inaugural California Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) High School State Championship held at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA. The event was a groundbreaking moment for California hockey as it was the first time California held a state championship between high school teams. Santa Margarita defeated Bellarmine 4-1 to win the state championship, eventually advancing to the quarterfinals of the 2012 USA Hockey High School National Championship in Utah.

Sharks Ice at San Jose is located at 1500 S. 10th Street (corner of 10th and Alma) in San Jose.
