Johnstown Jets Hold Training Camp

There hasn't been much news on the new junior hockey team in Johnstown although I haven't been checking the webpage as I had earlier this summer.

I did learn that they started their training camp this week (Monday, August 24th) and the season begins Saturday, September 12th. It looks like all UJHL games are played over the weekends - Saturday and Sunday.

The webpage has their schedule (which is combined for the entire UJHL). They have yet to have a players / coach roster up, but I'm thinking that it's just the fact that it's not being kept up especially since they're holding training camp this week (they need players and coaches for that!)!!

I went to the UJHL official webpage and found the following news:

08/03/09 The Johnstown Jets ink four players from their tryouts last weekend. Forwards, Zack Brown from Turtle Creek, PA and Scott Mathis from Morton Grove, IL.; along with Defensemen, RC Double from Lyndora, PA and Kyle Firth from Raleigh, NC.

The Jets have hired Dr. Ian Katz as their Team Orthopedist, as well as Dr. Gary Minchau of Hilltop Dental Associates as their Team Dentist for the 2009-10 season
