Unionville Jets help Hockey with Heart
January 15, 2015
The Unionville Jets have been proud supporters of Hockey with Heart for many years. On cold December weekends, several teams, including the Midget Senior, Minor Peewee, and Peewee Jets delivered Village Grocer bags to hundreds of homes in Unionville. These bags containing food donations for the Markham Food Bank were then picked up the next day. Thanks goes to the other Jets teams including the Initiation, Tyke MD and Bantam Jets for making food donations directly to the bins placed in our local arenas.
Way to go Jets!
Unionville Jets Win North Toronto Tournament
January 8, 2015
The Unionville Minor Peewee Jets took home the gold medal at the North Toronto Hockey tournament in a hard fought and exciting game that ended 3 to 2 over the Markham Waxers AE team.
The first game saw the Jets pitted against arch rivals - North Toronto, who the Jets had never beat. Justin Li led the way scoring the first Jet's goal followed by Alex Ventin to gain a 2-0 lead. North Toronto fought back to tie it at 2-2 setting the stage for Alex Ventin to score his second goal of the game with just 17 seconds left in the game to win 3-2.
Things would get more difficult for the Jets in the second game against the Markham Waxer AE team. The Waxers got off to a fast start scoring a mere 13 seconds into the game and despite Brandon Manuel’s goal the Jets could never muster a comeback despite many close plays and lost 4-1.
The third game was a must win and the Jets did not disappoint. With goals from Justin Li, Brandon Manuel and Adrian Yu along with stellar netminding from Rohun Pain and Jack Newburg the Jets sealed a 3-0 victory and a trip to the finals against the Markham Waxers.
The Jets roared out to a quick lead with Alex Ventin scoring in the first and then Kevin Harrison early in the second period for a 2-0 lead. The Waxers stormed back to tie the game at 2-2 until Cole Briere netted the winning goal with just over a minute left in the game for a 3-2 victory and the Championship.
Head Coach Glenn Koch praised his team for playing with respect and sportsmanship along with winning the championship. Coach Koch praised the efforts of all the Jets: Owen Burchat, Daniel Kaichis, Matthew Kanhai, Jayden Quan, Makaio Lamanna, William Gougouglias, Carlo Visconti, Lief Kolga and Matthew Trueman.
Unionville Jets Novice Select Team - Toy Mountain Drive
December 26, 2014
This year’s Unionville Novice Jets team is a team full of spirit. The players play hard, practice with gusto, and cheer wildly for each other like any great team does.
Fostered by the coaches, but largely through the players’ own initiative, the team decided to extend their sense of spirit and joy into the community by holding a toy drive at their Christmas party. The players brought in a true mountain of toys—over 50—to donate to Toy Mountain! Notice the larger-than-life tree in the photo with gifts underneath and all around, coaches and siblings and even more toys on the side! All together sharing in the joy of giving. Feels like family!

Respect in Sport Parent Program—NEW for 2014-2015
May 19, 2014
Starting in the 2014-2015 hockey season, the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) requires that at least one parent or guardian of each minor hockey player (18 years and under) registered in the OMHA complete the online Respect in Sport Parent Education Program.
“The Respect in Sport program is an online certification program designed to protect our youth as well as enhance the OMHA's mandate of providing a safe and fun environment for all participants. It is Canada's leading online bullying, abuse, harassment, and neglect prevention program for parents, coaches, and community leaders.”—OMHA
Currently, the Respect in Sport Activity Leader program is a condition of participation for all team officials (bench staff), on-ice volunteers, and on-ice referees. In an ongoing effort to foster a safe and enjoyable environment for our athletes participating in this great game, the OMHA is implementing a plan to ensure the OMHA is a complete respect integrated organization. Before a player can participate in the 2014-2015 season, a parent or guardian of that player must complete the online Respect in Sport Parent program.
Some quick facts:
- 1-hour online course
- Cost is $12.00
- One time only
- Accessed through the OMHA website: www.omha.net
- Enter your child's name when completing the course!
Please note that if a parent/guardian has completed the Respect in Sport Activity Leader program, the Respect in Sport Parent program is different and still needs to be completed.
Thank you for your commitment to the safety, enjoyment, and success of your child in the UMHA and for all OMHA participants.
