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.        


U16 (2002/2003)  Saturday   August 4th

Other important details:

  • Cost of the Jets/WEHL all-star teams is $400 per player
  • Top consideration will be given to Team Wisconsin final camp cuts as well as WEHL coach recommendations.  But the tryout is open to all Wisconsin HS players. 
  • Coaching staff will be announced in the next two weeks. 
  • Practice schedule will be announced at tryouts.  Practices will be on Saturdays so as not to conflict with WEHL games. 
  • The Janesville Jets are proud to share our brand and reputation with motivated Wisconsin HS players seeking exposure to college and junior scouts.

Janesville forms partnership with WEHL & WAHA for Fall Teams

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

Tryout fee is $50.00 for any player who is on a WEHL TEAM

For questions email

High School players in the 2001 and 2002 birth year are eligible to tryout for the Jets U16 tournament team. High School players in the 1999 and 2000 birth year are eligible to tryout for the Jets U18 tournament team.

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.

Tier I players are not eligible to tryout. These teams are for Wisconsin High School or WAHA Midget players only.

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