It is the mission of Jackson Youth Hockey to provide a meaningful opportunity for children to experience the great game of hockey and to develop their skating skills and hockey skills to the best of their ability while instilling the importance of sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork.
Congratulations to our High School Moose team for remaining undefeated on the season and for winning the Midget/High School tournament in Sun Valley, ID last weekend. Way to go Moose!
Good Evening Hockey Players and Parents,
Eight (8) of our high school hockey players are participating in a "Mance Off" at JHHS on Thursday night. This is a fundraiser event sponsored by the JHHS Dance Team. Dance Team members were challenged to recruit male participants and teach them a number of dance routines that they will perform in a competition on Thursday evening. The cost is $2.00 per person and $5.00 per family.
Hailey Barlow took on the challenge of teaching these 8 hockey team members including: Ryan and Jasper Welch, Rowan Wuerdeman, Will McCreedy, Jerry Henderson, Madden Hart, Henry Horstmann, and Gage Dwan.
Teams win based on raw talent AND crowd appeal--meaning we need to have as many team members and their families attend so our hockey team WINS!! The competition will be held at 7:00 pm in the large JHHS gym.
Come one, come all!! Tell all your friends to come out and cheer on the JYH High School Hockey Team!
Girls Try Hockey Free Day!
Saturday October 22nd, 2:15-3:15 at Snow King Ice Rink.
Bring skates, some kind of helmet and gloves, and a stick to see if the great game of hockey might be for you!
At USA Hockey's Annual Congress, several rule changes were voted into effect that will be implemented in the 2017-2018 season.
The significant changes include:
- 601(e.2) Abuse of Officials and Other Misconduct - Changes language for racial/ethnic slur to include any language that is
“offensive, hateful or discriminatory in nature”.
- 612(b) Face-Off Locations - All face-offs must be conducted at one of the nine designated face-off spots.
- 624(b) Icing the Puck - Eliminate the ability of a shorthanded team to legally ice the puck for 14U
age classifications and below.
The other rule changes mostly clarify/further define existing language and rules. The full list (Youth Edition) can be found here:
The below provides some of USA Hockey's rationale for changing the shorthanded icing rule:
