New in 2021, the Jr. Amerks are offering an exclusive opportunity for players in the Intro to Hockey Doodle Bugs program who show an aptitude for the game and want to play more hockey. The Jr. Amerks 6U Prep Team is designed to help our youngest players advance their skills while playing in a fun and competitive team setting, preparing them to play at the highest levels as they grow in the Jr. Amerks program.
The Jr. Amerks 6U Prep Team is for players in the 2015 and 2016 birth years. In addition to Doodle Bugs practices, the 6U Prep Team will have team practices throughout the season. The team will also play games against other Jr. Amerks teams and participate in jamborees and tournaments in the Rochester area. All players will receive a game jersey and socks.
The 6U Prep team will be assembled early in the 2021-22 season, after coaches evaluate players in the Jr. Amerks Intro to Hockey Doodle Bugs Level 1 and Level 2 programs, and identify those who are ready for a higher level of play. The team will consist of 10-15 players, plus a head coach and assistant coaches.
The Jr. Amerks are now accepting applications for those interested in participating in the 6U Prep Team. Learn more about the 6U Prep Team
