      Junior Everblades Hockey Association

      Welcome to the home of the Junior Everblades Hockey Association. The Junior Everblades Tier ll travel hockey program started in 1998 along with the Florida Everblades as part of team president Craig Brush’s vision for bringing hockey to Southwest Florida. That year, there were just four teams. Today the Junior Everblades is comprised of nine teams and over 160 players!

      The Jr. Everblades competes at the Single-A and Double-A levels. The Junior Everblades Hockey Association is a non-profit (501-c-3) organization, incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida, with the primary purpose of providing the youth of Southwest Florida an opportunity to participate in an organized competitive team ice hockey program.

      10U A Head Coach James Johnstone Talks About His Team's Progress

      We officially reached a new plateau this weekend. We have transitioned from a total freewheeling, defensively irresponsible team to one that is perfectly capable of winning games even when we produce only a goal or two of our own. Led by our star goaltender, Ryan Francis, we averaged only 1 goal against per game through five games at this past weekend’s Columbus Day Discovery Showdown Tournament. That team commitment to defense was our recipe for going home as Champions, and my oh my does it taste good. Assistant Coach Austin Petersen commented, "The boys faced adversity and triumphed through every situation.  We were down 1-0 during both playoff games but they pulled together and we prevailed."

      There were many heroic moments that led to our success this weekend, but to highlight specific plays would be contrary to the real reason why we came out on top. We won because every single player did what was asked of them regardless of the lack of glamor that comes with most of the roles. Thank you to all of our amazing parents for being there to support us, having faith in our process, and reinforcing our team-first mentality. This is a very special group, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together.
