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.

Other important details:
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.
