Development & Performance
The mission of the Richmond Jets MHA Rep Hockey Program is to nurture the complete player and develop well-rounded young athletes and citizens. We emphasize a healthy balance between hockey and life in an environment where our athletes can grow as hockey players and community members. It is a privilege for players and coaches to represent the Richmond Jets and we expect them to be outstanding ambassadors for the game and the community of Richmond, BC. Our coaches, under the direction of Tim Preston, are well qualified and motivated to provide the best hockey experience available for our young aspiring athletes.
U15A - Contact Hockey (Checking)
U15A hockey introduces young athletes to body checking and contact, which is also part of the U18A program. Body checking and contact is a critical skill in hockey that, when performed properly can create quality scoring opportunities or help a team regain control of the puck. Just like skating, puck control, passing and shooting, there are key progressions to the skill of checking when taught effectively, which can greatly enhance a player's enjoyment of the great game of hockey. Checking clinics are run annually in the spring by the Jets professional coaches and also at our summer camp program in August, and it is encouraged for all players new to U15/U18A hockey and trying out for rep, to take these clinics offered by the Jets.
