Picture Day

Picture Day is Oct 30 from 4-9pm with make up on Nov 1 during practice times.  Please have your skaters wear their white uniforms.  All players will be photographed "Green Screen" and will be placed together in a team photo so the full team does not need to be present.  Download this document for current photo packages available.

Sports Engine App

If you haven't downloaded the SportsEngine app, please don't hesitate to do so.  It's free and is an easy way to stay up to date and communicate with your team.  Click here to see how to find and follow teams.  If you'd prefer a video - click here.

Monthly At Home Drill

Keep your young hockey player working on their skills at home.  We are looking to continue to bring you a monthly drill that will help focus on improvement.    Coach Dirk has shared the following stick handling drill for our first month.  Please skip ahead to about the 2:37 mark.  Anyone can do this drill in a basement or in a driveway with a tennis ball.

Spread The Word - Try Hockey For Free

The first JYH apparel order is IN!  Be sure to pick it up from the Concession Stand at the Ice Arena.  The  NEXT apparel order is OPEN NOW!  Click here to view the store. This store will remain open through November 12.  Start planning your Christmas Gifts now!

DIBs Clarification

When you view your Dibs account, you will notice it states you need 12 credits (hours) total for your volunteer hours. We are unable to set everyone's specific hours needed in Dibs, therefore it defaults to 12 hours for everyone. Dibs will continue to keep track of your hours when you go over 12. Here is a reminder of how many hours each family needs. Your hours are determined based on your oldest skater.

In House - 12 hours
Red White & Blue - 17 hours
Squirts, PeeWees, & Bantams - 27 hours

Reminder: All volunteer hours need to be completed or scheduled by playdowns or your skater may be held off the ice. 

Any questions, please contact Kathi Chady at volunteering@janesvilleyouthhockey.com

JYH Tribute Night at the Jets Game

Please donate your old jackets to the Salvation Army during our coat drive.  We will have bins for coat drop off both during the Try Hockey for Free event and Jets game on  November 4.  There are many families and kids in our community that would benefit from a nice warm jackets this winter.
