The Marquette Junior Hockey Corporation (MJHC), a non-profit volunteer organization, strives to provide safe and affordable hockey and instruction for children of the Marquette area. We believe that participants receive the important benefits of fitness, sportsmanship, teamwork, leadership, and cooperation that will help each child achieve his or her personal goals, and contribute to the greater good of the community.
By unanimous vote of the MJHC Board of Directors at the Regular Monthly Meeting on December 4, 2013 the following Amendment to the MJHC Bylaws was enacted:
"Article V - Annual Elections
A. The President may, with a simple majority of the Elected Board of Directors consenting, select any past or present MJHC memger in good standing to fill a vacancy for the remainder of the term."
This Amendment is in effect immediately.

Marquette Junior Hockey will again this year be offering our USA Hockey Skill Development Program. The Skill Development Program is designed for brand new skaters. It is targeted at boys and girls in the 4-6 year old age group, but we have had skaters in previous years as young as 2 and as old as 15.
It is a fun, hockey based "learn-to-skate" program that takes your young skater literally from the ground up. The skater is taught to stand on his skates, skate forward, skate backward, turn and stop. This is accomplished through a series of educational drills and fun games. There is no competition in the Skills Development Program.
The program meets on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM and on Saturdays at 11:30 AM. The program begins on the first Wednesday in October and runs through the last weekend in February.
Due to a generous donation by Dr. Randy Folker and the Marquette Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic, the cost for this six month program is $95.00. Included in the fee, is a hockey stick for each player, a roll of hockey tape and a hockey jersey.
MJHC Registration Form is available at the link above. Your registration must also be accompanied by a bar coded USA Hockey Registration. Players with a birth year of 2007 or younger pay no fee to register with USA Hockey.
If you have any questions, contact Tim McIntosh at 906-228-9193 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the December 7, meeting of the MJHC Board of Directors, a new policy was passed concerning spectators in the Russell Rink. The new policy reads:
"No game will be allowed to start while there is anyone with the exception of credentialed media in the area above the benches. This includes coaches not on the bench, players not dressed and parents." Any person that is in the area above the benches will be asked by the referees to please move. If the person(s) do not comply, the referee will hold the puck and the clock will run.
Per USA Hockey and MAHA: Starting with 2010/2011 season, youth hockey player cell phones are not allowed in any locker room. With most kids having cell phones with cameras, there is a risk of inappropriate photos being taken and possibly being posted on the web. Hopefully, by keeping the phones out of the locker rooms, this can be avoided.
MJHC is taking this a step further and added to the policy by specifically saying any device capable of taking pictures or video are prohibited from the locker rooms.
MJHC thanks you for your understanding and cooperating with this new national rule.
