News and Announcements
It might be too early to think about playing hockey, but it’s not too late to register!
The fall season starts on September 3rd this year. We will be offering: 40+, Women’s, and Coed Tiers A, B, and C like last year, but we are bring Tier D back in combination with an expanded 6-session coached Intro to Hockey session in the fall. If you know anyone who’s been thinking about playing for the first, if they sign up for both the Intro to Hockey and Tier D, they will get a $20 discount for a total package price of $295.
Normal registration fees are $240 per skater, per tier or $80 per goalie, per tier from now until August 18th. After that, the registration climbs to $315 for skaters and $155 for goalies and space on a team with your friends is not guaranteed.
Click here and follow the instructions to get going.
See you in September!
Attention JAHA players,
IT’S JAHA PLAYOFF TIME!
It’s been an exciting season with a bunch of end-of-season ties and very close rankings. Nice work all!
The first playoff games have been scheduled and we will attempt to update the schedule as games are won and lost, but you can always refer to the playoff schedule linked here.
(If you’re wondering why the site has tied teams ranked one way and the scheduled games have it another – JAHA rules have “head-to-head wins” as the first tie breaker, which is different from how the site breaks ties. So if two teams are tied, we look at who won more games between those two games and that team becomes the higher seeded team.)
- JERSEYS: If you have JAHA jerseys (Tier W and 40) and your team is eliminated, be sure to leave your jersey with your team representative or make sure it makes it back to a JAHA board member. If you’re going to miss games where your team faces elimination, it’s best to leave your jersey with someone just in case. Thanks in advance for helping us out with this.
- RULES: Playoff hockey means OT and shootouts! Remember, overtime periods are 5 minute run time and are sudden death – the first goal scored in the OT period wins. If it remains a tie, we go to a shootout. A NEW rule for this season is that after everyone on your team has attempted a shot, anyone on your team may take any number of consecutive shot attempts until a winner is declared! Be familiar with all the rules by clicking here.
- PLAY SMART: Competition can get us all worked up, but be sure to keep cool, play smart, keep your head up and your stick down. If you’re called for a penalty, go straight to the box. If you have a question about the call, calmly ask a ref about it between periods or after the game OR let a JAHA board member know.
- BANQUET: The end-of-the-season banquet is scheduled for the evening of April 14th at the Red Dog Saloon! Remember, this is where you vote for your JAHA board members. This year, the following positions are up: President, Secretary, Member-at-Large A, and all tier representative positions. If you are interested in serving the JAHA membership, this is a great way to do it! If you’d like to know more about the responsibilities and desired qualifications for each of the positions, you can find descriptions in the JAHA bylaws and if you’re interested in running, please send an email indicating which position you’d like to run for and a short description of how you meet the minimum qualifications or responsibilities, as applicable, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have fun out there and we’ll see you on the ice.

We launched the inaugural JAHA Douglas Island Cup Adult Hockey Tournament last year and we’re looking to do it again, but with a couple of twists: it will happen in August this year and it will be 3-on-3 with individual signups!
Fishing will be hot, tourism destinations will be hoppin’, and it will be warm(er) – all things we hope will attract players from far and wide to our great city and make this the most fun and open tournament in Alaska.
We need your help. Do you know people who would come to Juneau to play hockey? Do you have connections to rinks and/or adult hockey associations outside of Juneau? If so, please send them the attached flyer and encourage them to print and distribute to anyone who might have an interest.
We are looking at some very Alaskan options for our banquet, like whale watching or zip lining through the rain forest, and we are hoping to arrange discounted airfare and lodging rates as well. It will be awesome.
As more information firms up, like prizes, registration dates, and so on, it will be posted right here on juneauhockey.org.
Stay tuned and spread the word – thanks in advance!

Dear Patient JAHA Player,
The email previously sent out had an incorrect link to the playoff schedule (and the incorrect link didn’t even take you anywhere fun). The correct link is below:
Apologies for any inconvenience, frustration, consternation, and/or anger this may have caused.
