WINNIPEG JETS HOCKEY ACADEMY PROGRAM  2019-2020

The WJHA program has two components.  The Wednesday 'school day' program begins on Wednesday, October 23.  Students who are in this program will be called out of class and load the bus at 10:30-10:50AM.  The students will go to the Ice Plex, get dressed for the ice time at 11:30-12:30.  Following the on-ice time, students will be given lunch, (sandwich/wrap, juice and a little snack) and will be returned to the school around 1:15 for the afternoon of classes.

The Friday after school program will begin on Friday November 1st. A full schedule of dates and times for the Friday "after school program" will be provided soon.  Please note that all students who attend the after school part of the Program on Friday, must have transportation arranged to be picked up @ 6:50 PM from the drop-off location at Bruce Middle School after each session. 

We look forward to supporting our players as they learn teamwork and hockey skills!


WJHA :  Friday After School Program at Bruce Middle School                                      November 2019

Students who are on the roster for the WJHA BMS program are expected to attend the “Friday After School" portion of the program.

Please note that these after school WJHA events are not SJSD/Bruce Middle School Field Trips.  The True North WJHA waiver signed by all parents/guardians at the beginning of the WJHA Program includes these after school events. True North Youth Foundation staff attend and support the after school program. One BMS staff member volunteers each Friday to attend all the a​fter school sessions.

There are 2 components to the WJHA after school program- “ Classroom and Ice Time Practices" and “Field Trips/ Special Events".  Both components highlight teamwork and community skills.

The “Classroom and Ice Time" routine includes":

4:00-4:40 PM: Class session (These sessions include guest speakers and engaging age-appropriate topics)

6:40- Bus loads to return to BMS- students return equipment

6:50- 7:00 PM: Student pick-up at BMS

A few points to remember:

  • All students who attend the Friday program are to arrange the 6:50-7:00PM parent pick-up (or arrangements for walking home) prior to departing the school for the Ice Plex at 4:40pm.  In the past year, many students are left waiting at the school for rides well after the program ends at 7:00PM, delaying volunteers and other True North staff from other commitments. Frequent delays in pick-up will affect the student's participation in this portion of the WJHA program.
  • Parents/ Guardians and families can come and watch ice time practices at the Ice Plex. If a parent needs to bring the student home at the end of the ice session due to another commitment, please be sure to notify a staff member so that the bus manifest can be changed for the return bus ride.  (Note: If a student does not return with the group to the school- another student needs to carry in their hockey equipment into the storage rooms at BMS! It is best if students remain with the student group until 6:50PM!)

Field Trips/ Special Events include:

-Times for school departure or pick-up may be adjusted to accommodate the travel distance or the start of the event. All families will be notified via email (and on the Bruce Middle School web page) of times for each Special Event.
