2001 Boys Team

Spring Season 2015

Mark Ruffenacht

Head Coach

Rob Schaeffer


Selected Players are Posted on 2001 Team Roster

We want to let everyone know what a great job the kids did in tryouts! We understand these can be nerve wracking for parents and kids alike. Please know we've seen lots of kids not make it in a particular year and then come back the very next year and be one of our best players so even if you are not on the list keep your head up and keep pushing forward in our great sport as everyone develops at different times, it's a marathon not a sprint!

The names on the roster are the skaters that we would like to see on our 2001 Team! Click the roster tab above for names.

Coaches maybe directly contacting additional players not listed about alternate spots before the first practice.

Please help your children understand the process and if you have any questions please feel free to ask the coaches.
Great job by everyone!

We are Finalizing Coaching staffs, if you are an experienced coach and interested in helping out, please reach out to Bill McCoshen

Youth Team Tryouts

Tryouts for all teams will consist of 2, one hour on-ice sessions. Format will be a mix of skating, puck skill drills, competition, small area games, and full ice scrimmage.  Some age levels may have invitation based team selections.

Team Coaches and additional evaluators will grade all players and average out scores to determine who makes the teams. Evaluators will do their best to watch all players and rank based on tryout performance and  understanding players' puck skills, skating ability, attitude, work ethic, potential, and greater understanding of the game.

Players that are chosen for the Jr Jet's Team will be Called within 48 hours after last tryout and invited to join the team.

Final Roster will be posted on the team page under roster tab a few days later.

Typical roster will include 15 Skaters, 2 Goalies. Some teams may offer a couple players Alternate Spots to participate in practices only.

Unfortunately, not all players trying out will be offered a spot this spring as these can be highly competitive teams to make.

The decisions to pick a team each year is a very very difficult process for our evaluators and coaching staffs. One of the hardest things to do in sports, is to tell a player he/she didn't make a team.

Please keep a positive yet realistic outlook while instilling confidence in your child, knowing that kid’s development at different times and it’s just a game!

We wish everyone the best of luck training this off season and hope you find an avenue to reach you hockey goals. 

Thanks again for trying out!

U16 & U18 Team Information:

This will be the third year of the partnership between the Janesville Jets NAHL Hockey Club and the Wisconsin Elite Hockey League (WEHL) to provide motivated Wisconsin High School hockey players an opportunity for unmatched exposure to complement the development they are receiving in WEHL.  The partnership has been successful!  Several former Jr. Jets/WEHL all-stars have made NAHL teams for this coming season including; Christian Bardarson, Nick Techel, and Max Techel.  In addition, several others have “moved up” from the Jets/WEHL all-stars to Team Wisconsin the following year; Max Techel, Robby Newton, Dane Sjowall, Hunter Stracha, Peter Genatempo and Walker Haessig. 

The Jets/WEHL all-star teams will participate in the NAHL Showcase in Blaine, MN from September 20-23 and in the Nike-Bauer World Invite in Chicago, IL from November 2-4.  The NAHL Showcase is the most heavily scouted hockey event in North America.  There will be more than 300 NHL, NCAA, USHL and NAHL scouts in attendance.  Every Division 1 school will be there.  The World Invite is heavily scouted, too.
