Junior Gold day is an opportunity for members and friends of the WBLAHA to learn more about Junior Gold hockey.  All three White Bear teams will be playing back to back games at the Vadnais Sports Center.  Everyone is invited to come out to support the WBL Junior Gold teams.  You may be surprised at the level of play - especially at the JGA level which is better than most JV and some varsity programs.  Bantam and Pee Wee players and their parents are especially encouraged to attend to see is Junior Gold hockey would be a good fit for them.   Junior Gold hockey is a viable option for high school boys to continue to play a game they love if playing for WBL Varsity or JV is not an option for them.  Some players even choose Junior Gold hockey over high school because it allows them to have significant ice time and play more games.  Here is this year’s schedule for WBL Junior Gold Day:

8:40 AM    JG B Orange vs. Eagan

10:30 AM  JG B Black vs. Blaine

12:20 PM  JGA vs. Edina

Come out to the rink and support Junior Gold Hockey in White Bear!

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 PLAYERS MUST REGISTER WITH BOTH USA HOCKEY AND THE WBLAHA

ALL PLAYERS MUST TRY OUT

The 15 and 16 year olds may participate in Junior Gold tryouts at the A & B level or play at the U16 level. A mandatory player & parent meeting will be held on November 12, 7 PM, First Presbyterian Church, 4821 Bloom Ave, White Bear Lake, MN 55110.

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.
