The San Jose Jr. Sharks is a youth hockey club where our goal is long-term development, not short-term success. We intentionally offer different level teams with different emphasis, in order to address the different needs and interests of members in the program. The Jr. Sharks offer competitive teams for boys (ages 9-18), girls (ages 8-19) and Women (over 20 years old).
Our Travel Hockey A/B/ Tier II “AA” teams offer a balance of skill development and competition, with a solid practice program and the opportunity to participate in a highly competitive league throughout Northern California.
Extending this strong foundation Tier I “AAA” teams gain the highest possible developmental and competitive learning experience, by playing at a State, Regional and National level. At the top level our Tier I “AAA” teams develop elite players who are capable of attaining their future hockey goals.
The Girls and Women teams are committed to nurture a love of the sport of hockey, especially at the younger age groups while offering opportunities to compete at the local, state, and national levels. Players are given opportunities at the oldest age group to showcase their abilities to collegiate coaches.
The cost of playing youth hockey for the Jr. Sharks can be divided into dues, soft goods, and travel expenses. It is the goals of the Jr. Sharks to have our dues cover all expenses associated with being on a youth hockey team. The Jr. Sharks program general estimated costs include season fees, travel expenses and soft goods. Specific season cost will be presented at team tryouts. Here is what each portion covers:

*Travel dues have increased this season to reflect the Jr. Sharks’ goal of setting one price to include all hockey related items reflected above.
