The WJHA program has two components.  The Wednesday 'school day' program begins on Wednesday, October 26,2022.  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 October 28th,2022 The program will occur between 3:30 and 7:00. Dinner will be provided, there will be a lesson geared towards athletic development and psychology as well as a skate. Some weeks, our students will even attend field trips!

​ It is expected that children attend the Friday night sessions as well as the Wednesday sessions.

A few important notes:
  • This hockey program is a privilege to a be a part of. This is not a right. At any point, if a child is not demonstrating safe, respectful behaviour, they will be unable to attend the WJHA program. 
  • The students in the WJHA program are "STUDENT athletes". All students must fulfill their academic responsibilities in order to attend the hockey program.
  • Please re-iterate with your child that the WJHA staff are an extension of their school and that they are to be treated as such. 
  • Lunch will be provided for students. It is usually a sandwich/wrap, drink, fruit, juice box and treat. Feel free to provide your child with a lunch from home if you feel as though they would not be interested in this lunch.
  • If there are any dietary restrictions for your child, please email me so that I can make sure there is an option for your child.
  • If your child was unable to attend fitting day, we will make sure there is the opportunity to get fitted at the beginning of practice tomorrow.
  • If your child uses an inhaler, it is mandatory that they have their inhaler with them for hockey. They will be unable to attend without their inhalers present.
Friday, after school hockey begins this week as well. I will be sending an email out about that event later this week.
Looking forward to seeing the kids on the ice and of course the smiles on their faces!

Jan 27/23

Good afternoon everyone,


With the forecast and windchill tomorrow looking increasingly questionable, we have made the call to cancel The Forks trip. Instead, we will stay at the school, rotating groups between the classroom and the gym with a 3:30 start time and 6:00pm dismissal. We will look at dates in February where we can hopefully get lucky with some warmer weather and reschedule this field trip. 🙂


Stay warm and have a great weekend,
