Marquette Junior Hockey


Welcome to the official website of MJHC

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.


MARQUETTE ELECTRICIANS FOLD

After struggling for the past two seasons to put a representative team on the ice, Marquette Junior Hockey President Jeff Cornock announced today that the Marquette Electricians 18U AAA Midget Major Hockey Team would be ceasing operations effective immediately. The Electricians Operating Committee, headed by former Electricians player John Way in conjunction with Head Coach Nate Taurence made a concerted four month effort to attract quality players from around the State. That quest was unsuccessful.

- There will again be a $50 registration discount for anyone registering through Sunday August 2.
 
- The registration costs and division levels are all by age this year without regard to gender.  All girls will be notified of the availability of level specific all girls teams once our registration numbers are known.
 
- The payment plan upfront cost has been reduced from $120 down to $75 and an extra monthly payment has been added on January 28 to spread registration costs out even further and lower monthly payments for parents.

-Anyone looking to apply for financial assistance should fill out the application under the Financial Assistance heading on the left side of the MJH homepage.  All applications must be received by September 20.
