Due to the covid mitigation matrix, all teams with exception to 16/18U will be capped at 26 per age group. The 16/18U team has formulated their own plan to maintain numbers on ice at any given practice. The Girls program and the Goalie clinics will be capped at 13 each as those groups will be on split ice. We will create a weekly signup sheet for Goalies to ensure we will not exceed the maximum allowed on ice. JDIA board of directors continues to work closely with EOC to provide for the safest possible environment for youth hockey. Registration caps will be updated as conditions change, and announcements will be made for any changes. If your desired age group is sold out please select WAITLIST. We will offer any open space to our waitlist on a first come first served basis.
Schedule through October is posted on our Calendar! Regular Season schedule will appear in app at the end of the Preseason.
New this year:

If there are any shutdowns like last year refunds will be handled at the end of the season.
USA Hockey requires that evaluations must be at least once a year. In the past our evals have been quite cumbersome and required a lot of extra time from our coaches. Furthermore our old evals didn't really give much positive feedback to our athletes. We are implementing a new evaluation system this year called The Power Player. This system will allow for evaluations to be done at any time. JDIA has a goal of getting evaluations done at a minimum at the beginning and end of the season so your athlete can see their skills progression throughout the year. JDIA will be using the Power Player prepaid team subscriptions. Your athlete will have their own account, you will be emailed access once the accounts are set up. Intro to Hockey will not be included in the evaluations.

We are excited to offer a Girls Program for girls born between 2009-2014. This year we are reintroducing the girls program with a smaller age range in the hopes to have a more successful season. In the past the girls program has had too wide of a skills and age disparity. It was difficult to manage and frustrating for all participants.
We have had a handful of Juneau girls participate in Ponytail and/or Frozen Cup each year, but they help fill in open rosters on other teams. The goal this year is to field a full Juneau team to take to a girls tournament, typically held in late March or April. These girls tournaments do not interfere with our co-ed States. The head coach for Girls is Heather Brandon and we will be sending out more information about the girls program shortly! To help keep registration costs lower, Girls will split ice with Goalies on Sunday mornings until close to tournament travel. The Girls Program was also awarded a block grant through Alaska State Hockey Association. With a successful season under our belt we hope to expand the Girls Program to all girls in the near future!
No experience necessary! There will be plenty of assistance on hand to be sure your child has the best first hockey experience and answer any questions you might have.

Brandon and Matthew JDIA
Words from the Campbell Family :
"We are forever shattered and missing our sweet son. He was such a huge presence in not only our lives, but everyone he touched with his kindness and generosity. He was and always will be a huge influence in Brandon's life and I know it's going to be a daily struggle for him, even if he doesn't outwardly show it. We know our hockey family will look out for him and shower him with love and care.
The instruction, experiences, and friendship Matthew experienced during his time with JDIA and Treadwell Arena from the first day the rink opened, to when he graduated from high school will be cherished by us. Matthew continued his love and passion for hockey the past few years as he played adult league hockey in Bozeman during graduate school, refereeing hockey in Bozeman, and even playing adult league hockey in Seattle during very intense chemotherapy treatment and terminal cancer. It also brought him such joy to return to Juneau last Christmas and play in the JDHS Alumni game, and he kept up with the rest of the players!
We are setting up a memorial scholarship to honor Matthew's legacy of kindness, hard work, passion for friends and family, and living an amazing life. We have details/links on his new website if anyone is interested or able to pass on the information. There is also a link to view and post pictures and comments about Matthew."
