The JJIHC (John Jay Ice Hockey Club) was established in 1980. Our objective is to maintain an elite ice hockey club which fosters and promotes the sport of competitive ice hockey. We strive to develop the essentials of good sportsmanship through team play, self discipline and good fellowship.

At the beginning, we started with a few high school students offering both Junior Varsity and Varsity levels, we now typically train over 30+ players across the teams during the season. The team has won the Hudson Valley High School Ice Hockey League championship 3 years in a row, won the New York State High School Large Club championship, and competed in the USA Hockey Nationals in 2010 in Chicago, Illinois.

In addition to the successes of JJIHC, many of our players have developed into impact players on Travel and Junior hockey teams in the Northeast region. Over its 20+ years of existence, JJIHC has “graduated” over 800+ players to play the sport of hockey for colleges throughout the US.

JJIHC could not have achieved this much without the dedication of its talented coaching staff past and present. The Patriots have many highly talented coaches who are all certified by USA Hockey and attend mandatory coaching clinics. They are always looking to further improve their skills and hockey knowledge for the betterment of the players. The club is operated entirely by a staff of dedicated volunteers.

Parents hold important jobs as well with the club. First, is to always keep our players positive, focused, upbeat and enjoying the game regardless of their role on the team. We also need many "little big jobs" to be done to help the teams run smoothly. The coaches depend on this help so they can concentrate on what they do best, teach and prepare the players.

On behalf of the players and coaches, we extend a special thanks to the student bodies of John Jay and Roy C. Ketcham High along with Van Wyck Junior and Wappingers Junior High Schools. Your support at the games has been simply tremendous year after year!!! To our alumnus near/far and business sponsors across the Tri-state area, your various contributions continue to make major difference for our players; enabling them to strive for excellence on and off the ice!!

Let’s all enjoy this great sport and the company of friends, great fans and teammates. Enjoy being a John Jay Patriot.

Craig Smith,

President of the John Jay Ice Hockey Club
