The Janesville Jets and the Wisconsin Elite Hockey League (WEHL) will partner again this fall to U16 and U18 Showcase teams in the NAHL Showcase in September and the Nike-Bauer World Invite in Chicago. Last years teams did very well and many of those U18 players were tendered or drafted by junior teams.
Players that are on WEHL teams will be given preference to make the Jr. Jets rosters. Under terms of our agreement with WEHL and WAHA, no more than 3 non-WEHL players will be selected for either team. WEHL coaches are submitting recommendations for selections. So your best opportunity to make the Showcase roster is to participate in the WEHL program.
Saturday August 26th at Sun Prairie Ice Arena
U16 Team Tryout-12:00-1:30pm
U18 Team Tryout- 1:45-3:15pm

Players must be Wisconsin residents, but can come from anyplace in the state. A list of of recommended players is given to the Jets Coaching Staff from the Regional WEHL Coaches and GMs to help the short tryout evaluation process.
The Jets/WEHL partnership is designed to give more Wisconsin players an opportunity to be noticed by junior and college scouts at two premier AAA events.

The Showcase team fee is between $250-$300. That includes tournament fee and practices. It does not include travel or related expenses.
