For Players

Jersey Collection

If you still have your new game jerseys that were handed out this season, please give your WASHED jersey to your coach on Awards Night. If you are unable to attend, please contact your coach to make other arrangements.

Old Game Jerseys

For 6U Sayen’s, 10U-14U House, and 19U Girls: we will not be collecting the old CCJHA HOUSE game jerseys (with the CCJHA logo). 

We will be collecting the 8U and travel team jerseys (Thrivent, Hancock Fire, Houghton Fire, CC Old Timers, Portage Lake Flyers - all ages).

Practice Jerseys

If you were given a practice jersey at the beginning of the season, please wash and turn those in with your game jersey.

For Coaches

Please come prepared with your individual achievement awards for your team. Each team will have a few minutes to hand out awards and recap/elaborate on their kids and accomplishments if they choose to do so. 

This is the first time in years that we’ve been able to do this ceremony in person. It means a lot to the kids to receive these awards and be recognized. 

Hat trick, playmaker, and zero club (shutout) award earners must be submitted to Michele LaCourt (michele.lacourt@gmail.com.) no later than 4/20/22.  Contact Jeff Van Karsen (jeffvk@glsv.com) if you have any questions.

Team Jersey turn-in will take place on Thursday, April 28 from 6:00-8:00pm at Houghton County Arena. If you are unable to drop off at that time, contact Travis Kilpela at 906-231-1904 to make other arrangements.
