The Jr Sharks House League is excited to announce the registration is now open for the 2021-22 Winter Season! We will begin on-ice evaluations on Saturday, September 11th. Sign up quick in order to reserve spot and receive important evaluation and season details. Please take a few minutes to carefully read through all of the information below for the upcoming season and to register.
A few new improvements for this upcoming season:
1) Buddy requests may include a total of two or three players per request. All players in the request must request each other for it to be valid. Buddy requests must be made during the registration process and include first and last name of each player.
2) The 14U division will be played non-check. In recent years the focus has trended to angling and body contact instead of body checking. This change in how the game is coached has put more emphasis on puck/stick skills and individual skating ability than overt physicality. The JSHL strongly feels that the elimination of body checking will also encourage more recreational players of differing sizes & skills to stay involved in the game through a later age.
3) There will be two phases to the evaluation process: initial group scrimmages followed by pre-draft practices. The group scrimmage schedule will be included with your registration confirmation while the pre-draft practice schedule will be announced at a later time. All details and information for the entire evaluation process is sent to completed registrants.
