As we look ahead to our teams to finishing this season we also have to start thinking about next season. With the changing landscape of youth hockey, WJHA has also taken steps to continue to grow and offer our players an opportunity to do so as well. WJHA has always prided itself on having a place for all kids who want to learn and play the game of hockey regardless skill level or talent. We look to continue this progression by joining the EJEPL and now the Tier 1 Premiere Hockey League of New England (PHL) and will be fielding a full compliment of Birth year teams from Squirts to Bantams for players at our highest levels, while still offering mixed birth year teams in the SNEHC for those who are still developing. Next Season plans for Squirts are listed below so please take a minute to read next seasons program. We will have an evaluation skate for the 2008 and 2009 Birth years on Monday 2/12/18. The purpose of this skate will be to evaluate the over all group of players to determine the overall skill level of players wishing to compete in the various levels that we will offer next season, to include the PHL Premier and EJEPL Diamond level for both the 2008 and 2009 age groups. This is not a tryout and no teams will be selected before our tryouts at the end of March. All players must register by clicking on the link below.2009 Skate Monday 2/12/18 @ 5:30pm Thayer Arena2008 Skate Monday 2/12/18 @ 6:45pm Thayer Arena
