2017 Junior Gold Off Season Training Program

JG eligible players (Last year 2nd year Bantams and older, must still be in high school) within the WBLAHA are invited to participate in the 1st (hopefully Annual) JG Off Season Training Program. The program consists to 2 hours of ice per week for 9 weeks during August & September. Ice times are in the later evening (as it is for most JG ice). JG Coaches (A & B) will be running the program which will consist of 50 % scrimmages, and 50% small area games/warm up drills. Last year’s 2nd year Bantams are especially encouraged to attend to get a taste of JG hockey and get to know the coaches.

Cost is $150.   Registration is for the entire program – even if you can only attend a portion of the program.

The JG Off Season Training Program does NOT replace Junior Gold Fall Warm UP camp which will be in late October and Early November.

Players must register with USA hockey for the upcoming 2017-18 season to participate. Be sure to PRINT and SAVE the confirmation code - you will need your USA hockey registration number to register for this program.  Registration link is below.

About Jr. Gold

The Junior Gold program is designed for skaters between the ages of 15 and 18. It is for players who want to commit to a team, play and have a great time doing so.

All Junior Gold teams will play in the Metro Hockey League, which may require driving to games anywhere in the seven county metro area. Games start the first week of December and games and practices are usually the later hours of ice time, after 9:15pm on school nights. Teams may play into the middle of March if they make playoffs and continue on to state.

There is typically 1 or 2 out of town tournaments requiring an overnight stay. No player will be allowed to have his/her own hotel room. Minnesota Hockey dictates an adult must accompany the player, even if the player has turned 18. 

There are 3 levels of Jr Gold Hockey Jr. Gold A, Jr Gold B and Jr Gold 16U.

 

ALL PLAYERS MUST REGISTER WITH BOTH USA HOCKEY AND THE WBLAHA

ALL PLAYERS MUST TRY OUT
